An eclectic array of new snippets~~jugglers and munchkins

I finally completed a few new circus characters. A blue cat, a yellow rabbit and a purple frog juggling felt balls and sculpted onto wooden candlesticks. I used the pastel/painting techniques that I learned at art camp recently. I LOVE the softness and shadows you can achieve with pastels over paint! I have a feeling that I am going to have lots of fun in 2010 experimenting even more with them. The rabbit and the cat will be listed in my etsy shop shortly.

One of my customers requested a Bigfoot munchkin (seems like an oxymoron, right?) in honor of her brother who sadly passed away. He loved Bigfoot, so she wanted this little guy to remind her of him. So sweet. I really liked figuring out how to make Bigfoot into a cute, small creature....sort of feels like this is what he would have looked like as a toddler :).

And here is a custom collegiate munchkin.... an Oklahoma Sooners horse all decked out in his crimson duds!

I just love that cat! And my sister & brother-in-law would love the OU munchkin! They live in OKC & are big Sooner fans! Have a warm & wonderful Christmas! ~ Jill
