So I went back to this little bird today. I made pretty good progress! He looks a little wonky here – he is still in pieces and this was me just placing it all together.
So – I know I’ve been absent for a while – I’ve been working through some things, but I hope to be able to get back into the studio to get back to cutting!
I really love this design – I thought it would be fun to turn it into a desktop background.
So here is 1920 x 1200 | 1600 x 1200 | iphone. If you would like the background at a different size (for another mobile device or different resolution screen. Just leave a comment with your size request and I will get that worked up.
The artwork is roughly 8.5″ x 12″. Not sure of the cost, but will be about $80 in a standard frame. If you would like it in a better frame (meaning with UV glass it would be more) If you are interested let me know! Email for availability, pricing, payment directions, or for more information.
Here is the drawing of my green-headed Tanager. This is a little tiny bird. His head is roughly an inch. I worked and created his head yesterday – but now looking at it now I think it is the wrong color. A lot of pictures have the head color more blue than others, so I think I need to redo it in a different paper.
Wow I think I’ve spent about 5 hours online these past 2 days looking at birds.
Tangers, Waxwings, Warblers, Jays, Orioles, Quetzals, and Tanagers – right now leaning towards an Oriole or a Green Headed Tanager (that is one pretty bird)
I enjoyed my break from the studio during December. Today was my first day back in a while and I had to spend my time CLEANING!!! I had not yet unpacked my things from Festival of Lights. Now everything is back in it’s place. So in the next day or two I hope to be able to start on the first piece of 2014 which as of right now I am thinking it will be a bird. Now just need to figure out what bird….
My booth is all set up and I am ready for tomorrow!!! Hanging several new works and bringing out a few pieces that have not been seen for awhile – including Pinup2 (under the blue protector). I am happy with everything! Even better that I am no next door to my friend and ex-studiomate, Russ Little!!!! My booth is right inside the door from the receptionist desk!

This is how I spent my studio time – quality time with the mat cutter. I spent too long today looking for the square frames I wanted to use for the letters – I could not find then and settled for the 8×10′s and am really happy with how they turned out. You can see them in person (as well as a slew of other work) on Saturday and Sunday at the Festival of Lights.
