The Circus comes to Wibbley World

This month's Nibblefest theme is Circus.

I'm offering something new this time, a miniature painting on wood, which (on request) can be converted into a pendant. I've painted quite a lot of these already but this is the first I'm offering them for sale - I hope they do well because I really love making them!

Micro Jumbo
1" x 1.25"
Genesis heat-set Oils on Wood

My other Nibblefest entry is, predictably, Lunchbox:

Lunchbox, Lost in the Circus
4 x 6
Oil on Canvas

Whatever you do Lunchbox, DON'T LOOK DOWN!!!

This painting makes me nervous just looking at it, I have a terrible fear of heights (unlike certain chipmunks!)

Baby Blackers, friend of Baby Quackers

Baby Blackers,
friend of Baby Quackers
2.5 x 3.5
oil on panel

This is the first painting I did in 2011, and it's the long-awaited prequel to my painting, Blackers, friend of Quackers. Remember?

Regular Blackers,
friend of Quackers

Which reminds me, I really need to resurrect Mr. Quackers, he hasn't been around in ages!

Anyway Baby Blackers, Friend of Baby Quackers isn't for sale yet, mainly because I still haven't quite made up my mind between selling on ebay or ETSY. If it wasn't for Nibblefest I'd probably never get anything listed!

I think Baby Blackers, friend of Baby Quackers is a good start for "The Year of Cute*" if I do say so myself.

*more than likely featuring lots of baby animals

Happy New Year

Birthday Bear
2.5 x 3.5
oil on panel

I had actually painted this as a birthday present for myself back in September, but didn't completely finish it until last night. So as the last painting completed in 2010, Birthday Bear gets to be the first painting I'm posting in 2011, the Year of Cute :)
