...And it's finished ('cept for the frame)!Quite a bit of detail for the size (5x7"). And the gold leafing really perks it up nicely (the crown and tops of the flag poles are gilded):The upcoming aforementioned arctic/polar series will be titled "Polar Royalty Convention" and is something that's been brewing in the bowels of my sketchbook for some time now. It will showcase a meeting of the upper-most representatives from a menagerie of arctic animals. What shall they discuss when together? The usual: small talk, relations, economics, the climate, and all things politically polar. A series of paintings that will show a sort of whimsical-fantasy-with-melancholic-reality view of the polar nether-regions.

...If that even makes the slightest bit of sense. Lets just face it--I wanted to paint a walrus wearing a crown and cape. There. I said it.

I'm plugging away on more pieces for the series and can't wait to unveil them to you, one-by-one. It's a bit hazy still on when exactly the collective shop update will be, but do stay tuned!

In non-art news, I did a bit of organizing in the studio and was able to corral the fabric zoo into a nice and tidy spot:
Hard to say how long it will stay like this, but that's alright.

haha... it's a walrus with a crown and cape. ;) I can't wait to see the rest, I know they'll be just as unique and original :)

And I love when my fabric stash gets all organized and tidy....but then I 'will' go and use it again...and another mess ensues!! tee hee!!

Eggman Studios said...

Thanks, sweety! They certainly don't stay tidy for long, do they? :)

I love the walrus!...and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the collection.

Good luck keeping the fabric nice and neat. Mine is in a half-tidy-half-piled-atop-the-chest state right now.

Thanks, Lori!

Indeed, the nicely organized fabric collection didn't stay tidy for long. It's already time to go through it again. Blargh.
