Bark Exhibition: To benefit animal shelters

I've been busy making dogs.
 Having a lot of fun.
These are for a show at the Eissey Campus at Palm Beach State.
The show is a fundraiser for animal shelters. There are plenty more of these available for adoption.
Had a lot of fun with their names. Maggie the Mauler, Cindy Claws, Sunny the Scratcher to name a few.
The opening reception is September 16th from 5:30 - 8:00 PM. Runs through October 17th. All of these dogs and cats are available for adoption. See you there!

September Calendar Page

Happy Day! September is on the way. I love the sound of September partly because there's a happy birthday to my sister Virginia and me. Going to post images of some  new weird dogs I made later today or tomorrow. In the meantime, please feel free to use this calendar page for personal use on your computer desktop. Remember I always post a little twitter version @Vixterina.

A New Favorite Thing

While at NIADA I bought this piece by Reina Mia Brill. Her work really speaks to me. I think that this is what I feel like on the inside. And today on the first day back to school after summer vacation.... probably what I look like on the outside! Reina is really a cool person, and I am a huge fan. Did I mention she has a shop?

NIADA conference

Just back from Orlando and the NIADA conference. Holy moly, saw some GREAT artwork. Here's a few images from the sale today. If you aren't familiar with NIADA or the wonderful artists or the sale... well let me introduce you to:
 Ankie Daanen.
Chris Chomick and Peter Meder. You should see their automata (watch the movie Hugo)

 Diane Keeler. Check out the Queen of Hearts and the Bride in White. I am drooling.
 And Karin Otto Burfict. Stunning.

 Leslie Keeble
and Marlaine Verhelst. The best part? They're all really nice people and a lot of them do workshops.

New Studio Coming Together

We're back from vacation. What you may not know is we moved into a new house 2 weeks prior to traveling so I barely unpacked and whoosh we were gone. The past few days I have been getting my studio together and I am ready to work. Here are some pics. My Toby jars seem happy.
