The second is a painting of Tiara walking in the deep snow. I'm not sure about this one - it is still a work in progress and may need a significant overhaul before I can consider it done.

I finally got around to trying my hand at felting a borzoi. This is about three inches tall. I spent the whole afternoon on it, and left it on the table for two minutes while I went to find some beads for eyes, and Tiara managed to steal it off the table and started chewing on it. Then I got it a bit wet, hoping for soft curls, and I ended up with frizz. How frustrating! I think it turned out OK, though. Still needs eyes - the beads weren't the right size.

This one is of Tiara. Both paintings are small (8x10 on canvas).
I have also been playing with encaustics again, and finished this landscape (8x10 on 2" cradled wood).

I finally tried to fuse some glass this weekend. It was so simple to do. I used a schedule I found online, and it took 14 hours! Rio Grande says I can shorten it significantly, so I will try the easier way next time. There are just so many fun possibilities with fused glass!
