Join me on my journey as I create visual art in various media including acrylic, pastel, pencil, watercolor, and mixed media as well as ceramics and needle felting. I am also writing and illustrating a children's picture storybook. Regardless of the medium, my subject is nearly always animals!

The Three Shaman
I finally glazed my squirrel shaman. Here he is with the shaman group including the smaller sheep shaman and cat shaman that I finished earlier. I feel that the glaze on this one was pretty successful. But, as on the sheep and cat, I finished the eyes and mouth with acrylic paint covered with gloss acrylic varnish. I just can't the detail I want for those part with the glaze.
Squirrel's staff is part of a tree root - pine, I believe. The roots are more interesting than the branches and they are a bit curly!
