And I was sick of painting the portraits that I've been doing for the last ten years, so I started doing animals and landscapes and a number of other goodies. Anyway, here's a little preview. This is one of my favorite ones. It's a naming certificate for a new (or not so new) baby. I was commissioned to do one for a friend of mine who wanted to give it as a gift for a bris (circumcision). The recipient now wants two more for her older boys so more designs to follow. This is a version I made for girls called You Are My Sunshine.
More of my work is on my new website: www.mishmishstudio.com.
For a while now I've been admiring some artists that I found on the web who sell their prints and originals through Etsy. They seem to really be making a go of it which has lead me to be believe that I might also make a go of it since it IS the year of the Ox and I am, after all, an Ox. Might as well live my dreams. Although these artists don't appear to have kids which means they have 36 extra hours a day to paint and run a business. I feel like with 70,000 people laid off today, maybe the US will revert to a crafts and trade economy. We'll start bartering chickens. I'm going to build my coop right now so I'm ready. Oxen are known to be industrious.
