I'm at it again...

Spring didn't sprung this weekend. It's cold and drizzly.
So, I decided it's a good day to try once again to produce a masterpiece!!!
Throw on a red "frame" and some hair...and a bit of skin.
How 'bout a cat?! I figure if I want to sell this thing it has to have
a CAT!

Poke holes and wire on some old readers that i was saving in a drawer for something really important...
some lightning bolts. Some hearts. A designer paper dress. A faux brass plaque.

And she's done! I had a good time doing this, however it was a very difficult process that took a great deal of time (this I'm not kidding about), skill and training.
Warning! Don't try this at home. Save yourself a whole lot of trouble and Buy it at my Etsy shop. : )
Have a good time out there, you all. Whatever you're doing.
later gators,
Ronnie

I love her too!! The glasses take the cake. When I saw the first pic I thought you just put you glasses on the canvas for fun and I thought, Oh! She should attach them!!! Very very cool:)

I am thinking you just created Wallace and Grommit's nemesis. I'm calling Aardman Studios right now, they need to be warned. Seriously, I love to see your creative process. Thanks for showing off.

She is a scream. Her teeth remind me of David's... whatever he does with those Chicken Lips. I love her! If I only had money, she'd live at my house and we could talk...
