This little guy earned his name after a long drawn out battle to try and photograph him. I have a love-hate relationship with my camera when it comes to certain colors… and it looks like I’m going to have to add yellow to that list! Continue reading

Status: Painted 2013 and an honorary member of the Home Herd.

I had honorable intentions when I started painting this little guy, I really did… and then they fell prey to the lure of the shiny. Of course when you start with the idea of ‘I’m going to paint a purple wolf’ moving onto ‘I’m going to paint a purple SPARKLE wolf’ really isn’t that big of a step.

I had good intentions with this year’s donation to the Big Orange Bash, but life threw me a few curve balls and I got him finished up seriously late. (The show date was June 15!) Thankfully the showholder is a) very forgiving and b) can still use him, so he’ll be out in the mail in the near future.

I think I’ll start next year’s donation tomorrow… Continue reading
