June 15th is a Special Day!

June 15th is the 10th birthday of my favorite grandchild, Ianna. I really miss her...she is not only my favorite grandchild, but my favorite art buddy. She always joined me for any new art project! She is such a fast learner...and loves to go teach to someone else (one of her many gifts).

In celebration of her birthday, I am sending her a little something every day this week. The first offering (Monday) is this little "birthday bird". He is made from paper clay with a foil and wire armature. He is gessoed and painted with acrylics, then finished with a clear gloss glaze. He is ready for the party with his fanciful party hat and reminds Ianna that her "10th birthday is almost here!"

The Tuesday offering is a mini "happy birthday collage" on canvas featuring Ianna when she was just 3 years old. Such a cutie!!!

Stay Creative!

What a terrific grandma you are! And, from what you wrote, your little granddaughter is a gem. (not to mention cute as a button).

LOVE the birthday bird!* She will treasure it and the rest of the birthday goodies (collage) forever. They are so special.

*I think you should make some of these and sell them on etsy!
