petite little artworks

Here’s an old piece of work I dug out the other day. I made it in college for one of my illustration classes…you know, back in the late 1900’s.


I created it as a 3-d miniature of Norman Rockwell’s Triple Self Portrait, and titled it Rockwell Remembered. I still remember how much fun I had working on it, day and night, night and day. It only took me about 50 hours! Mr. Godlewski graded it with a AAA+, haha.


The materials include wood, canvas, clay, wire, tape, paper, burlap, mirror, cotton fabric, paint, charcoal pencil, colored pencil, wood stain, cardboard, glue, waxed paper, paint, and clippings of paintbrush bristles.


Well, that’s enough of the past:) It was fun to fix it up and show the kids, and we put it on a shelf in the living room.


Here are some recent artworks–a few animal necklaces I’ve been carving.




And HERE is what happens when I eat avocados for breakfast…


First this.


Then this.


Then this! And finally…


Ta-da. An avocado pit fox necklace. Have a great day!

    You should send a pic of your “Rockwell Remembered” to Rockwell’s son. Forgot his name but he might still be living, he’d love to see it! Amazing little face you made out of the avocado pit…lol…really cute.

    Rockwell had three sons–all artists–and one of them builds miniatures, lol! I just made an avocado wolf face for Cashy–I’ll have to post it soon.
