Dash

As promised in my previous post I have finished my whimsical cat sculpture.

Meet "Dash"!




I had an absolute ball creating this guy. Even though he isn't a ginger cat, he's inspired by our new kitten. I started making him the day after I tried to photograph Pumpkin (aka Toots) running around the yard. All I got were these crazy pictures of flying back legs. So we have Dash, short for Dashing Through the Snow. He's created in a whimsical folk art style out of paper clay. His base and support are wood and he's got loads of diamond dust glitter on his snowflake blanket and base. The entire piece measures 14.5" tall x 12" wide. I haven't decided what venue I will sell him on. Right now he's making me quite happy. If you are interested in purchasing him, please let me know.

I also finished 6 Holiday horse pendants! I'm going to offer them for 2 days on my blog before I put them in my Etsy store. Price is $29 each and that includes first class postage in the US ($2 more for postage abroad). I'll accept check, money order or paypal. Each pendant is signed, hand painted, comes with a toggle clasp, an approx. 20" black satin cord, glass accent beads and comes in a velvety drawstring bag. Email me if you want one! jmacneill@hotmail.com First come, first served!

Dash is adorable. I couldn't wait to see what he finished product looked like when you first started him. And I have to say I am not disappointed.

How purr-fect he is! He so reminds me of my beloved kitty Patches, who is no longer with me. Unfortunately, he was a rather grumpy kitty and Dash looks very happy. The horse pendants are gorgeous, by the way.
Talk to you soon! Theresa

Woman, there is nothing you CAN'T do regarding art! And here I was thinking you are excellent on flatwork and you make excellent 3-D stuff. Sure you don't want to be a doll artist???

AMAZING!

Your work is amazing! I love everything about this sculpture. It looks like a kitty dashing through the garden. And what a happy, free expression on its face.

Love the kitty name! I have a new half-grown kitten at my house and I've tried photographing him and they all come out blurry because he is always on the move!
I just love your art!
