You are such a swine....but you are just adorable. I couldn’t resist sharing with you this morning a sketch I did on Monday in my sketchbook. It just turned out really sweet and I can’t wait to see how far this little guy will go. Yesterday I started an 11 x 14 painting of this composition and we shall see if my brushes can reproduce what my colored pencils did. I have a strong feeling that this guy will be among my original art that will be on exhibition at the Boulder City Art Gallery in March for my solo show that I'm calling "Dare You Not to Smile". I'm guessing you can tell why I would include my little friend.
Yesterday, I spent a little time working on the image in Photoshop and decided this was the image I thought would make the best prints and greeting cards. The original matted sketch is for sale but it is the selling of cards and prints that really are the main revenue generators for me. My goal is that by the end of the week this image will be available on my Etsy Shop and at both the local galleries in the form of greeting cards, magnets and matted prints.
