FlyAway Pigs

A recent custom order for three large paper mache flying pigs. All made from up-cycled newspaper and cardboard; wheat paste, acrylic, magic & love. I was pretty much given free reign to my design but the customer said she like colors like teals & golden yellow. So, I was inspired by space/galaxies, sunrise/sunsets and clouds/blue skies….

Galaxy FlyAway Pig.

Constellations, galaxies, star formations and glow-in-the-dark star clusters are featured on this FlyAway Pig. Plus, silver-lining thread from a comet, and celestial trinkets.

Sunrise/Sunset Fire FlyAway Pig.

This FlyAway Pig is inspired by many a sunrise and sunset over a scenic lake. I collect sunrises and sunsets – whether via photograph or memory…they inspired the fire red/burnt orange to golden yellow ombre and the sun swirls and fire tendrils of the wings. Sunshine colored threads and strings hold doodads and sun-spired charms.

Sky blues and fluffy-puffy clouds; wings of daydreams and floating in the air magic. A collection fluttery, iridescent trinkets on astral blue strings.

Year of the Monkey

HAPPY YEAR OF THE MONKEY!

“The monkey is known for being very intelligent and clever,” explains Laura Lau, author of The Handbook of Chinese Horoscopes, calling it “one of the most innovative personalities within the zodiac.” These are common personality traits of people born under this sign, but they’re also thematic to the Year of the Monkey overall. As the monkey imbues the year with its quick wit, curiosity, and, as Lau stresses, its resourcefulness, it becomes a “year of reinvention in a lot of ways…a very energetic year and an auspicious one.” ~Refinery29

Port Bow View

I finally completed the paper mache sailing ship and took it to the lake for a photo shoot. Conditions were perfect for sailing and the jib & boom are strong. Although the little ship is just for display, I believe it was ready to head windward!. Here’s a sneaky peek of the port bow…and that’s all I can show you until it arrives to its home dock. ⚓
