Artist to do list

Now that kitty is starting to feel her way around the studio, I felt comfortable leaving her with a to-do list while I ran errands.  My daughter's 18th birthday is tomorrow, and I still have presents to buy, a cake to make and decorations to hang.  I don't know what I would do without my assistant.  She sure has made my job load much lighter.


It is of utmost importance to have an assistant who can read and thus be able to follow written instructions.  How fortunate for me that Kitty is a well read employee. This ability became apparent as she followed the to-do list, step by step.

As she gathered together supplies needed for our springtime ornaments I noticed her her propensity for play.  The selection of a bisque ornament was executed with much sport and joy on Kitty's part.

An artists paint brush is one of their most important tools, so they must be chosen with attention to the correct brush size and shape.  Fortunately, with her eye for detail, kitty was able to pick out the perfect assortment.  


The new spring line for our shop include  home and garden ornaments with animal designs and bright pops of color.  It is quite obvious on which ornament my assistant chose to draw!  I suppose it is something of a self portrait!

Feather your nest.
This cheerful chick measures 3.5 inches round and was hand drawn, hand painted with non-toxic, lead-free glazes, outlined and fired in my kiln.  It can be arranged in a basket or hung from an ornament stand inside your home or outside in your garden for a burst of springtime color.  It is available here

Kitty is proud of her first contribution to the shop and thinks she looks adorable surrounded by all that bubblegum pink glaze.  If you are interested in purchasing her signature piece, you can check it out here

With her to-do list complete and in need of some rejuvenation, kitty took a little cat nap and caught up on her favorite T.V. show - Animal Planet.
