Mid-week Art

I found this picture of a tri-colour Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in an old Readers Digest Condensed Book. In the picture a lovely old lady is holding her CKCS on her lap. Somehow framing it gives the look that 'he' is about to be strangled. Ummm I do understand that feeling, at least once a day - between cuddles.
My Mum commissioned this Cat Food Tin Lid People Posy for a friend; she was pleased with the way this one worked out. I am all done with Christmas commissions now and have one or two special projects I want to complete - then it will be free play for a couple of months, YeeHa!
I have received a lot of amazing art and treats in the mail this week and will make my next post a celebration of arty friends.

I always love that patina on your cards and jewelry. What do you put on it to get the brown tone?
I need to get off the computer and do my commissions too. 6 bracelets and a necklace. Yahoo!
Have a blessed day.

Hi Julie..wow on your art work i love it and your in Albany. I couldnt believe it I rarely meet other mixed media artists here. Thankyou for your lovely comment and I adore what you do to. I see your with etsy so am I but havent done much with it as yet. Do you do the markets at all around here? I am doing a few starting off in January. I will be a regular at your blog and say hello. Now I will go and read more of your blog and have a good look at your art work. I have lived in albany for 11 years and before that i was in Denmark for about 15 years and before that I was in Fremantle my old stomping ground. You may have seen around town a big Purple Bedford Van, thats me, if you see me around come and sell hello. smiles Michelle

Beautiful necklace Julie, it's hard to believe it started out as a humble cat food tin lid.

Poor little Cav... lol does look like he is being strangled... Love the card and the necklace too!

He really does look like he is being strangled - funny how context changes things so much.

What a wonderful image Julie, and so relevant to you! lol Absolutely gorgeous rusty colours in both these pieces and I too am amazed how fabulous a cat tin lid can look after you've been let loose on it!

Gorgeous necklace Julie. Your mum's friend will adore it. You get the 'aged' look just right, every single time.

And I adore your collage with the little spaniel. Just gorgeous!
