This lovely pooch belongs to my daughter, Rochelle - check out her page; you're going to love it! I've been working
I'm a rabid fan of Dean Russo's work and have been trying to create a stencil of Daisy for a long time. This side by side of Dean's pooch was approximately where I wanted to go.
So now that I have a reasonable stencil made (above, left), I can create another painting any time at all...Rochelle might be getting a new one every year for Christmas. Can you hear her cheering???
And yes, I promised you a video this week that takes the book folding a little further, so here is the process for turning the basic folded book into a wacko 'Expat Offspring'. It took ages - in my world that is - to video just one page tear, and to do the original Expat from Arcturus took that x about 150, so be warned. It is not a fast process!
You may wonder why the 'Offspring' has googly eyes and so few tentacles when the parent (is that male/female/androgynous?) is eyeless and heavily tentacled.

You may not have known that on Arcturus, only babies under 25 years have eyes - the fully matured adult sees through their third, invisible, inner eye. Each year, they grow a new tentacle and when they reach 25 they start to shed an eye per year. Aren't they are brilliant? By the time they reach 162, they are truly stunning.
