Once a year Pence Gallery sends out 5" x 7" canvas boards for their Tiny Show. Years past I would just paint a still life or portrait of one of my pieces. This year I decided to do a sculptural piece that fits on the board. I built the "portrait" on a slab measuring 5 3/8" x 7 3/8" ( I estimated the piece would shrink less than 1/2") and trimmed away the background. It came out of the kiln, fitting the the canvas board right at the edge.
At this angle it does seem the sides are going off, but they actually line up.

I love this piece!ReplyDelete
He is just mischievous enough to warrant some attention amongst all the beautiful paintings. It sold over the weekend :)Delete
What a good idea! He is very a charming elf! : )ReplyDelete
It is a wonderful and fun exhibit.Delete
Of course your Nature Boy sold! Even if there had been sculptures a'plenty, he (and his little blue companions) would shine his ethereal beauty and steal the show!ReplyDelete
Love him so much.
Charlene, you're such an inspiration, always :)
Thank you for all your kind words, Vicki :)Delete
Oooooooh! Just fantastic. Whenever I see your lovely works on your blog, I wish I could see them in person. Love the girl and light green leaves and particularly, her eyes and the blue birds!!ReplyDelete
It was fun to do this piece. It was a surprise to pull it out of the kiln, the colors were so autumnal!Delete
