Checking in--checking right back out again!

Just a quick update here- we will be gone most of this week, returning on Sunday evening. Then things will settle down here soon after and I can get back to the commissions I am working on at this time.

I did list Renata this week- here is a picture of this feminine blond beauty! I love the coloring in this piece...
Have a great week and I will get back soon!

Such FUN! Sweet little Elke....

Had to get a new server this week- for my website as well as my ebay listings. A pain to get it all switched over, but this new system is a dream!

Anyway, it took me the better part of the week to get it all up and running again, so I was late getting my fairy listed. I wouldn't have been able to get her listed anyway until I had the new service activated! But, we did it- all is well, and Elke has arrived!

Coming this Sunday evening on ebay....

A little sneak peek! Actually it was a perfect day to take pictures today...I love the challenge of good photos. This is Shea.
Hint: it's all in the lighting....

My latest on eBay- Mariella!

I started out with an entirely different plan- and ended up with Mariella. She pleased me- I loved her expression. Sad, yet hopeful. I hope you'll like her too!

About the photography here. I think the effects are cool. I took these outdoors in open shade which means light filtering through the branches. I held a matte gray board up at an angle behind the sculpture, allowing the reflections and shadows to dance across the board. It caused the streaking effect and also bounced light off the sculpture.

I think I am going to rig up some stands to hold that board next time, so I don't have to! It was hard to hold the board- and steady the camera all at the same time. Oh, and make sure the breeze didn't blow her off the stand. Fairy wings will catch the wind, you know...

A bit of time away...

I'm back. Sorry for the time gone, it's been filled with visits from the grandkids! Summertime brings all sorts of fun distractions. I even caught one sitting in my birdbath. It wasn't a bird, either!

I know, I know... well, I guess it was hot that day-and he's a little character!
