Update! I finished the video of the dragon. If you want to watch it just click on the photo below of me and the cats.
Hey everyone. Look, it has taken me a long time to realize that I’m just not a great blogger. I have the best of intentions, I really do. The last year or so it seems like my time was not my own. I took on a few commissions and it felt like I was behind on those from the start. Those projects always take more time than I budget. I know all of you artists out there understand. I’ve actually shipped a couple of pieces without even taking photos. Sorry. I just needed to get them done. But I did take some video of my most recent commission, the dragon trophy that you see in the photo below. My client wanted lights behind the eyes etc, so I did that. I’m pretty happy with it. I’ll have a time-lapse video of this project finished in the next couple of days. I’ll post an update when it is finished.
Meanwhile, since I posted last, we picked up two new “helpers.” I’ll use this same photo to introduce them. The “torty” in the middle is Mazzy. The little tabby on the right is Abby. We got them on the same day from different shelters. As you all know, my beloved Max died last year after a long, baffling illness. Then, two weeks after Max died Eddy quit eating. We are convinced that Max’s death contributed to the onset of Eddie’s illness. Eddy just missed his friend and tormentor. After a lot of work, and lots of vet bills, Eddie is now relatively healthy again. Much of the reason we got the kittens was to give Eddie some company. And he has really responded well to them. And so have I.
PS. In case you were wondering, Eddie was in his box (with the heating pad) while the photo above was being taken.
Mazzy loves to be around Eddie. She sleeps close to him when she can.
But most of the time she is with Abby. It’s hard not to post a hundred photos. But I’m sure it’s like seeing a photo album of a friend’s trip…not all that exciting. So I’ll stop now. (Except for the two below)
In my office….
…and on one of the many kitty ramps in the house.
Okay, that’s really it.
PSS. I’m making a cat sculpture for a cat rescue in California. I’ll take some photos and show the making of that project for anyone interested. I haven’t done that in a while.
