Most of my "new" pieces are results of custom requests. As artists we LOVE to create new designs, however, the reality is when we are managing a busy shop/website, keeping up with social media, answering emails, creating/packing/shipping, and all the other tasks associated with running a creative business (not to mention running the household!), there is not much time to create new. I guess it must be scheduled in to the routine, but I always seem to find 100 other things that take priority. This said, I know it is important to create new work to keep the portfolio/shop/website looking fresh and to satisfy that creative itch that just will not go away! I have several "new" projects going all the time, and I try to spend a bit of time each day "playing" (maybe only 10 minutes before bed or early in the morning before the day gets rolling)....it is just good for the soul! Also, I have a pretty good case of ADD, and having something new to break up the humdrum is thereputic.
So I "stole" some time last weekend (I hate to admit it, but I usually have to work on the weekends...always in catch-up mode) and designed this fun Noah-themed topper.
I have been wanting to round-out the baby shower category in my shop for a while. It comes with options (birthday, personalization, etc,), but I think it will be most popular as a baby shower topper. I had a lot of fun creating all the little animals....it was hard to choose which ones to include! As with all of my toppers, it can be custom-made to match a party invitation or decorations.
Here are some beauty shots!
Thanks for looking!
