Finally done! Here is my contemporary take on an fine art classic.
Some steps that I took in creating this painting.
To get a nice big sheet of paper to draw my picture on I had to cut a bunch of papers out of a magazine and gluing them together.
Then I cut out a stencil of a pattern that I wanted to spray paint.
Leto was there every step of the way helping me out. Good dog!

My grandam owned a big print of Lady with an Ermine, by Leonardo da Vinci. It hanged magnificently in her hallway and I loved it. Till this day I consider it as my most favorite painting by da Vinci.
Here is what I’m talking about.
So, since I finally have a pet I can create a Lady with Blah of my own! I was thinking of creating another collage out of magazine on canvass. That will give it an interesting modern twist to it.
A Note of things I need for it:
Paint ( maybe turquoise)
Spray paint (yellow)
A good saying or a good pattern.

What kind of happy-new-dog-owner would I be if I didn’t create a painting of my dog.
Here it is!
Ink on magazine pasted on an “old” canvas and the horns are acrylic paint.
And now it went to a new home on the July 17, 2011. So I need to make a new one. Shish

Our parents and grandparents had them when they were growing up. Us, not so much. That is because today’s toys most come with a computer chip or else they are not cool (or whatever the word is for “cool” now a days… I feel old)
But, the paper toys have been coming back. But this time as an art form. I imagine them in a house with yellow walls and lots of sunlight-almost to the point of blinding-that has it furniture from a yard sale and heavily inspired décor from Anthropologie magazine.
Also, I like the idea of customizing your art work. On Etsy you can buy my digital print and pick the color that you like it to be. But, I also want to make artwork that is one of a kind and still allow people to customize it however they like it. Puppets allow that.
Here is my first attempt with the idea. I hope you can tell its a horse, lol.
