"Sniff," 18" x 21", tissue paper and acrylics collage on Ampersand gessobord, featuring canine noses representing 12 different breed groups. This mixed media piece was created six(?) years back for a poster contest and went into storage afterwards. I think it deserves a home, don't you? So I'll let it go to the first one asking nicely - for an "adoption fee" of $99, including shipping within the US. Excerpt below is truer to color and shows the patterning and detail in each of the noses.
An antique secretery desk is storage for my unsold daily paintings. It's perfect - all the little cubbies are great for nesting panels. And if a piece is too large for the cubbies, it goes into a portfolio behind my wall-to-ceiling bookshelves.
Which means the paintings are out of sight.
Which means I sometimes forget what's on hand.
Which means that occasionally I need to revisit the out-of-sight-out-of-mind-storage.
Which means that this morning I did just that.
I discovered (and then properly stored away) some of my kids' art from elementary school, found a couple of my paintings that should never have originally seen the light of day, and fell in love all over again with most of the others.
And this one? Well, it spoke to me. It said it wanted a home. Let me know if that's your place.
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork,
