The Owl and the Pussy-cat

I will be showing my animal portraits at Paxton Gate Curiosities for Kids in San Francisco at the end of this month. Along with a full set of the original small sized portraits I am making some new paired portraits based on stories for children. Here’s the first pair I’ve finished based on Edward Lear’s poem The Owl and the Pussy-cat.

Next I’m working on a Fox and a Crow from the Aesop’s Fable of that name. Each pair will be framed with the text or an excerpt from the story they’re based on depending on the length of the tale. Here’s an example of what I think they’ll look like once they’re matted.

The framing and matting costs a bit more for something of this size so I’m not sure what the price for these portraits will be as yet. However, I also plan to frame them individually so if you fall in love with one but not the other don’t despair.

In related news, production of the note cards has stalled slightly due to a combination of things, though predominantly I admit I was a little caught up with planning my wedding. I will be back to working on those as soon as I send out the portraits for this show and I hope to have something fun to share by Christmas.
