As a super WD fan, I love your art work!

So many details and it really is scary, just like the black and white movie of the Night of the Living Dead...

just one tiny thing: Where is Glenn??!!!! Grin


...and Maggie?? I had originally planned to add Glenn and Maggie in the windows of the farm house. But I had barely completed Shane and Laurie (she needs to be reworked - sloppy rush job) when I was told that the exhibit was to be in just two days. I rushed thru all that I could so as to be ready for that showing. Now the painting is hanging on the wall in the city's town hall along with the rest of the artists I work with. I didn't know the exhibit was going on so soon, I thought I had another month for that. You see I paint in a league with a bunch of other artists at the senior center where I live which meets regularly. We paint and exhibit our work at various libraries about 4 times a year; it's kind of fun! I thought the next exhibit was in June. Wrong!! That said, I had no time to add Glenn or Maggie never mind even finish up some other details I needed to get to. When I get the painting back I will add Glenn and Maggie and also rework Laurie. Thanks for your kind comments.

Aaah, now I feel better about my decision not to do it.

Wonderful montage - It looks like a charcoal drawing.  I love it.

Thank you! I tried to make it look like a poster type thing (sort've) then backed away from having lettering on it. Now in hindsight I think I should have stuck to my original idea. Well, there's always a next time.

I just HAD to do it! Grin  This is my first attempt at a montage so if it's off kilt bear with me. I decided to do the montage on my favorite TV show "The Walking Dead."  One of the characters needs to be redone, I was rushed to finish the painting and so that's what happens when you are nagged to death.  I will fix when I get the painting back. Painting was worked using 2 colors and was worked on aquabord size 24 by 18.
Hope you like!!

Thank you my fellow crafsters!! I work in many mediums not just beads but no matter what...I always go back to them. I just love them and they are so easy to work with. Why? Because even tho they are small they have large easy-to-needle-thru holes in them. I have a taboret that has ten drawers that hold my beautiful Delica beads; whenever I need inspiration all I have to do is open the bead drawers and scan the stunning array of colors in there and I am ready to create again.   Smiley

That is phenomenal.  What are the finished dimensions?  Your detail is wonderful and that is such a lovely tribute.

Thank you! The finished piece is 5" by 7" and contains 24,000 beads. The beads are called Miyuki Delicas and I work with size 11.0.  There are many different sizes but I like the tiny ones because there are over 1100 differnt colors of them. You can fit over a hundred of these beads (well over a hundred) on a teaspoon. Glad you liked it!!

...this was done using beads...very tiny beads, 24,000 of them. The person who requested this portrait (as her pet had passed on from old age) had asked if the dog could be made to look younger, hence the difference in the darker coloring in the replication.


and here is the photo I worked from:

You know, I was wondering if your dolls are washable...I see lots of knit and crochet dolls and animals and wonder if my nieces and nephews would get them so dirty that they would need to be cleaned...I guess it is like any store bought stuffed animal...they can be wiped clean?

I work with acrylic yarns which are washable and the filler (batting) inside the doll is also washable and non-allergic. I never washed one of my dolls because I never have them long enough to get dirty...LOL!

Below is a pic of one of her other requests for a doll...this one for Princess Peach (my own pattern) from Super Mario Brother's game...she loves that game!
