I can't believe this started out as pipe cleaners and a candy box!  You nailed the construction, the paint job, and the embellishment!

I don't think I've ever posted on this board before.  I 've been doing way more craft than art in recent years, but I finished these pieces recently and I'm super excited how they turned out. Also, I posted them on my personal Facebook page and got some great feedback.  I think it's totally amazing that somebody else felt a connection with my work. So exciting! So encouraging!

Anyhow, here they are.  They were designed as a trio.  The backgrounds are abstractions done with alternating layers of paint and painted on wax.  When I'm done, I scrape up all the wax to reveal the trees/bubbles/rain where the different layers of paint were resisted by the wax.  The animal is painted in artist-quality acrylics on top. (I've been painting for years and never really invested in good quality acrylics until recently. Let me tell you, better paint made SUCH a difference.)

Totally amazing transformation!  Also, (I hope you take this as a compliment) you totally remind me of this character from the movie Rio: http://popcultureninja.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Rio-2011-Movie-Rio-and-Linda.jpg
