Completed Cow and Genetic Dogs

Happy March! My brain is already running crazy with the recent test results from our two dogs. I’m getting ahead of myself… let’s step backwards to the cow completion: Here she is complete with a pink tongue sticking out. The stand is cedar with a round of gold leaf. Cow is 94% Oregon wool, 4.5%Continue reading “Completed Cow and Genetic Dogs”

Gathering energy in the new year

The light is returning! Happy New Year! The new year has started slowly as I figure out my focus for 2021. Last year I created 100 laundry dryer balls and I already have two orders for the new year. I think this might be a good product to continue making on a serious level inContinue reading “Gathering energy in the new year”

A new project

The weather is hot and I’m spending time inside with the AC, 32C is warmer than I can handle! My creative gears have shifted once again back into possible images for a couple of fundraisers. The above pooch belongs to a dog friend and photographer. I’ve not actually met this pup, but she’s beautiful andContinue reading “A new project”

Felting a small dog

Harry was a funny Pomeranian cross that belonged to my nieces mom-in-law. He just passed away after 18 wonderful years with Patty and Dave. The block he’s sitting on is 5″x 5″ (12.7cm x12.7cm). I’m still very much a beginner with trying to figure out the whole armature  to dog type ratio works. Harry hadContinue reading “Felting a small dog”

Moby Head Completed!

As I mentioned before, somewhere during this blogging experience, process is what drives me forward with any project. I find it amazing that laying down line after line, one can create an image that seems to work. Above is the full slideshow of Moby’s head from start to finish. Not all of my photos areContinue reading “Moby Head Completed!”

Isn’t He Done Yet?

Why do I keep picking at this image? It keeps festering on the drawingboard, receiving more marks in different areas, resolving questionable zones. I think I’m finally satisfied enough with his nose and the pencil is moving down into the muzzle zone. His chin hair is crazy! Do I really try to capture it orContinue reading “Isn’t He Done Yet?”

Border Collie completed

Slowly the “to do” list is decreasing as 2019 comes to a close. Today I dropped off this cute Border Collie destined to reside in California. I hope it brings joy to it’s new owner. The people sending it were thrilled with the pup. Hearts are happy all around! I think I’ll be pushing theContinue reading “Border Collie completed”

Border Collie #3 start

Sculpture Day: Another rough dog form has taken shape. Currently the neck and tail are too long, but should be able to solve the problem before coat application. This one is heading off to another artist who is one of the most amazing calligraphers. Her mother just passed away and apparently there’s a connection betweenContinue reading “Border Collie #3 start”

A little more work

I’m finally sitting back down in the studio to work on the dog drawing. It’s definitely a work in progress. Ears, eyes, nose, and mouth zone keep shifting as more information gets laid down. Life has been a jumble of so many things that I’ve had a hard time sorting out daily tasks. Arthritis flair-upsContinue reading “A little more work”
