my dog

my dog, originally uploaded by Tobin Art.

after years of messing about with plaster i came back to making small plaster frames for my small works (usually watercolor and/or acrylics on heavy paper and heavy varnish to hang without glass).

I have been in the studio more than not lately, feels so great to be on painting track again after what seemed like endless experimentation and showing (7 shows since last october).... The shows promote more manic experimentation which has happened whenever i put out my work in a big way.

today i sold a portrait commission off of my etsy site. yay!

i have held off twittering, it was getting to my nerves.

Anyway, i think the cost for this is $100 measures 8 x 8

per usual payment plans are available as little as $20 a month (or even smaller if necessary).

bird and it's cat box

birdincatbox3, originally uploaded by Tobin Art.

the cat box is designed to hang on the wall by it's ears. this is a special little safe house for the needle felted bird to hang out when not out exploring kitchen tables and art shows.

have a good weekend!

podprint, originally uploaded by Tobin Art.

this is a new handworked tiny art print from an older mixed media painting. It WAS listed on Etsy until my friend saw it and said it was her favorite of everything i have done so far (that is a number in the thousands) so how I could NOT send it to her in trade for a huge box of wool roving she sent me up from Maryland in total trust of getting something back she liked?

The red fox is also going to traveling down to be with her tomorrow as well.
