it disappeared!

Didn't take many picture in progress, since it was so large (40 x 30") it was difficult to see the changes. The studio is empty, I'm worn out, and the work is up at Place des Arts in Coquitlam through Feb 5th. The opening was very well attended and the other artists were super nice and have very strong shows. Pretty good press, didn't get to plug the blog and misspelled my last name in one article, but I got a new pic in this weeks paper so that was cool! We did an artist talk for Family Day on Sunday which was fun and that was a good crowd as well, the photo is of the big beast with some kids in front doing the Venetian mask craft. Really happy with how everything came out, totally worth all of the work!

Took much longer to do the white part - needed several layers of
glazing to develop the sheen / lighting to make it appear ceramic
instead of chalky. DD insists I'm not finished as there are fine
cracks apparent in the photo. Told her we could experiment with
crackle glaze _if_ this comes back from the show!

Now to move the back burner painting to the front!

Final day

for this one. So the sculpted gel media lace worked great, not as
quick as i hoped since I've never tried the technique, but did speed
up the paint application. It actually is like lighting an object at
that point, just fill the brush and drag it in the right direction.
Worked perfectly for adding tons of detail. Now off to finish the
feathers and readjust the nose.... Today! Liking my little
cheerleader popping her head in the studio with a "How awesome are you
painting, Mommy?"
