|It occurred to me this evening |
as I spent waaaaaay too much time poking around Pinterest
...instead of working in the studio...
that I've been 'pinning' things for years.

Although I thoroughly enjoy doing this technique it is very time consuming
and requires 3 firings instead of the usual 2. I use an underglaze pencil for the outline
and amaco velvet underglazes for the color.
Hogan swims inside the mug, while Bogey is on garden duty.
Hogan, chipmunk, baby birds and hummer.
Hummingbird, purple coneflowers and strawberry-thieving chipmunk.
Leigh sent me an 'action shot' of Hogan swimming in her morning coffee.

I am so honored to have been asked to paint a birdhouse for the
Children's Museum of Oak Ridge's Annual Gala!
Several area artists were asked to decorate wooden birdhouses
which will be auctioned off to help raise funds for
this wonderful museum.
I found this little brass chicken in a box of odds-n-ends at an auction years ago.
It's a happy way to keep my 'palette' from sliding around.
I love the pop of complimentary colors together.
This was great fun!
