This is the original drawing (Sharpie on metal plate) which led to my Maneki Neko transfer series. All are one of a kind.
When you're working on a beer-themed piece, it's only natural to drink & draw:
I think Madeline is interested in this one, which was partly inspired by her Bruce and his love of chomping plastic water bottles. And I followed it up with a "black & tan" Shiba piece (not completed as of this photo). I have a couple more animal/beer themed paintings drawn, waiting to be painted. The makings of a new series!
This lil' guy was inspired by the impending deadline. I still have SO much to do!!!
Here's a piece it's a little more positive in spirit: even a stormcloud can bring happy things!
And this, my favorite in the whole lot, was inspired by all the fantastic creatures I've seen while diving & snorkeling in the Caribbean. I had so much fun creating it that it felt easy, though it was a lot of hours of very careful work. My recent trip to Roatan inspired me! John and Michele saw it and I think they're going to snag it, which I'm absolutely thrilled about... So I can still go visit it.
And did I mention that it was painted while balancing a cat on my head? Forget painting: THAT'S talent.
