Hi people. There's big news at the bottom of this post you won't want to miss, so hang in there!
Here is my latest commission (in progress). It's a big bird sanctuary of sorts-- three trees holding a basin. It's coming out pretty nice. I'm trying to decide whether to add some leaves and/or a small nest somewhere. These clients have been waiting a while, and are long time supporters of my art, so I want it to be really awesome when it's done.
I've had birds on the brain lately. Last week I got this bracelette. I'm much more likely to make jewlery than buy it, but I just couldn't resist this pendant. It's kind of super hero-ish, and looks fast.
It kind of reminded me of the cover of this book I just finished. (Really good if you like sci-fi adventure and YA fiction.)
At my open house I had a big canopy that was a view of branches overhead with birds flying through. Someone asked if it could be put over a bed. What a cool idea! Now I totally want to do another one that could fit over a king bed. I'm thinking about the birds-- smaller for this, but lots of energy, like a vortex maybe. We'll have to see.
Okay- now for the big news:
Some of you are familiar with the tree sculptures I do every fall ( I'll post pics next week). I'm getting ready to begin those again and this year plan to make several variations including wall mount pieces, some smaller versions that will be a little less expensive, and some longer versions.
I'm going to be holding some random drawings to give away some of these pieces. I'd like to reward those of you who've shown an interest in my work-- I really appreciate it. I'll be selecting winners from my "Followers" (over on the right). I know many of you aren't official followers even though you are regular visitors, so I'm going to wait a couple of weeks. It's really easy-- you just sign up-- You won't get put on any weird lists or anything.
If you get anyone else to sign up I'll enter your name twice (double your luck!). Just shoot me an email telling me who you recruited. Please feel free to share this, forward it, etc. I'm trying to expand my exposure.
