I am offering a few Calendars for sale at myEtsy shop. The printing job is out standing and would make a wonderful gift for yourself or friends and family. I have 2 Abstract, 1 Cats and Icelandic horses and 1 Icelandic horse Calendar left.
***Last Icelandic horse calendar just sold. Holding a raffle for one of the larger Abstract Calendars on my Facebook page.
I will be adding more to my shops every day and if you are interested in one of my designs but do not see it as a iPad or iphone yet, let me know and I will be more than happy too design one for you and get it into my shops.
I was originally working on a Phantom Navy jet but sadly... Mia lost one of the mice she brought into the house and before I could find it.. would you believe it found a way onto my Artist desk and peed all over it. Sigh ~~ So I just tossed it.
Have been meaning to start another one but after that... has taken me awhile to take a chance on another.
Am pretty sure there are no more mice running around the house.
So this one will be a Ink and Charcoal Icelandic Tolting horse based on a photograph Maike has very kindly allowed me to use. Thank you Maike!!
Above you can see the very rough pencil in and just a bit of ink on the mane.
Have just started on this Icelandic's face. Am planning on going slow on this piece as I feel a bit rusty.
Not sure if I will get this one done in time for Christmas but I will try.
In 2007 I bought 3 Cafe Press heavy duty Hanes sweat shirts, as a product testing and trial run.
First two years I washed them as recommend on the tags, and wearing one every day for Farm chores such as taking care of horse's, gardening or fixing fence, the sweat shirt's printing, fabric and elastic cuffs still look like new.
From the end of 2009 to now.. I decided to abuse them in the Wash too, using super hot water in a heavy duty wash cycle.
The main body of the fabric is holding up well, as it the print job...which kind of surprised me but in a good way. However, the Elastic around the neck and cuff's are starting to get stretched.
Is again surprising how well these Cafe Press sweat shirts have held up to daily abuse and very please with the quality, and those that know me, know I don't say that lightly.
These Sweat shirts are excellent quality, nice and thick, which I love.
