New Woodland House Building Workshop Date

I have a whole slew of new materials- enough stump/floor circles to last a year(Thanks to my awesome father and his 'best friend'- his chain saw) and some fun items I gathered in Portland. So sign up now! Hope you can make it.

Sid or should I call it Steller Vicious?
I think he's about 12" high- too lazy to walk down to the studio to measure the painting. At any rate I was hanging out in a backyard and this Steller Jay was yelling curses at my cat, and I thought- Jays are the punks of the bird neighborhood. Which led to Sid. I love that Sid Vicious always had the eagle pin on his leather jacket. I imagine a Jay would make the jacket out of cat skin. This Animeople piece is more modern than the others but I just have to expand if I don't get dull by the end of painting 30 some odd of them!

and next up- a bit of a challenge- painting a corset for a friends project. I reallly don't have time to do this but I'm a sucker for an interesting project and its a good excuse to visit with some old friends I haven't seen in some time. I'll post it for you, kind reader, when it's done, but only if most of me is out of sight.
Also getting ready for the show at Daredevils and Queens, going up on the 9th. It really will be an ODD show of lots of different work- not a single series like the April show will be.

Tu Xiao Jie (Lady Rabbit)

Yes, I know, I know, it is quite different than you expected. I had posted the original sketch a while back, of a Chinese Bunny lady standing, catching plum blossoms. But I happened across an ancient painting that captivated me and adapted it. I'll post some details later, but I'm already a couple minutes late to pick up the boys, so, till then...
Oh and by the way, my fairy house building workshops have been re-titled- they are now "Woodland House Building workshops". So much more room for imagination.;-)
