A "miniature" wall and some new work

I ran across some small plate holders at a huge discount and thought they would work well for my miniatures when they are home between shows and for my tiny new miniature art collection. It will grow. :-) We had the eagle all alone above the couch and he's HUGE, but that wall still needed more. He always looked forlorn and lonely. I am much happier now. I think I will go and see if they still have any long ones left and put up 2 more. :-)

I've also been working on a couple of other new pieces. This eagle has been sold to a collector but he's still with me waiting to finish curing so he can be varnished and go to his new home.

Another eagle...

Eagle mini, hippo scratch WIP's

I have 2 going at once, the eagle is nearing completion, the hippo is in the UGLY stage! LOL.

The eagle is 4.5" x 4". It's done in caseins on board.

Here is the under-painting start.

More layers.

Starting to refine things.

Now for the ugly stage hippo- done in scratch and acrylic inks.
