Wooden Dolphin #001 – Black and Gold Dusty Dolphin
What mammal through yonder wavecrest breaks? Why tis a gilded dolphin o’course!
I picked up a small pod of wooden dolphins from Michael’s and this little guy was the first one to leap his way onto the finished pile. So far my muses have been dancing along the fantasy end of things, but I’m hoping for a realistic one someday. *crosses fingers*
My grandmother used to tell me that the sunlight dancing on the wavetips was the sea’s diamonds and if that’s so I can’t think of a better dash of gold to add to the hoard than this handsome fella.
Circle Fantasy Dolphins – Go, Go, GO!
Before I started down the roads of plaster casting, I had a lot of fun turning the various ArtMinds shapes into magnets. One of my favorite is the Dolphin, but I can’t seem to bring myself to paint on that’s actually dolphin-colored! 😉
While I haven’t painted as many of these as I have the old horse shape, the more I play around with it the more I love it. I have a feeling that there are going to be quite a few more dolphins on the way in the coming months.
Onwards to the gallery! (Last Updated: 6/15/2017)
