Since the final year of my Bachelor’s degree (in Visual Arts) I’ve been incorporating cute (and sometimes slightly odd) creatures into my landscape paintings. Recently I was offered the opportunity to have some creatures on display and for sale at The Front Room – away from their landscape habitats!
While I’ve made small creatures before as gifts for people, it has been a challenge getting them to a standard I’m happy with for public display and sale. I’ve spent the best part of the last two weeks learning new stitches, drawing up little sketches, and bringing some wee fellows to life. This week I took them out for a little photo shoot, as I’ll be delivering them to the gallery next week and felt they needed some fresh air (and photo opportunities) before I part with them!
Cute! I will be endeavouring to create more of these fun little fellows as I have another project coming up in July at which I’d like to have a whole bunch to sell! In the meantime, hopefully people are interested in them at the gallery. If anyone reading this would like one, I can do custom colours/faces/bodies perhaps!
