New Fish

Hello Friends and happy Monday!!
Today my very first newsletter went out. It's definitely a work in progress and I'm not totally pleased with the design but it will have to do until I learn the system a little bit better. 
My sister helped me with my new banners and I'm loving them!
We're working on new buttons as well as little custom headings 
for the blog to make it more fun to look at.
Here is a link to read my newsletter but please sign up to the right so that you become a monthly subscriber. I'm going to be doing monthly give aways so you may win something:)

This is what I finished this week...



This guy is titled
"La Baleine Rose"
(the pink whale)

I found that resin frame in a thrift store. It was all busted up but I fell in love with it so
I brought it home and gave it some TLC in the way of glue and a sturdy cardboard backing.
Sweet!
I think my most favorite pieces have come from unusual finds that probably
 would have made their way into the dumpster if I had not rescued them.

I also reworked this piece a little bit...


As a theater performer I felt he needed a skill so he now swims through a flaming hoop.
Fun! and daring.....


He doesn't look impressed, does he?


I don't remember if I shared the octopus with his juggling balls...
(shame on you!)



I took a deep canvas and used the back instead of the front.
I covered the inside cavity with paper mache to make a solid surface to work on.  
The curtains were constructed out of recycled cardboard and then covered in paper mache too.
Paint, glue, thread...
Done!


I'm going to be selling 5"x7" prints in 8"x10" mats.
They will be professionally matted with backing board and the mats will be signed by me! 
That's my project for this week,
clean studio....it's REALLY REALLY bad!!
and then get the prints in the shop.

That's it for now.
Enjoy your week!!
