Inspirational Artist :: Transmuted Spaces

San Francisco based artist Tobias Tovera creates paintings that beg the viewer to let go and let the mind wander. I love the fluidity and organic feel of his work :: very relaxing don't you think?

Fresh Ink :: Lady + Bug

Step 1 of 2 is complete! I just wrapped up printing these little ladies, and now have to wait for them to dry before I can begin step 2. 
They were a bit tricky at times during printing since there isn't a lot of inked block for the paper to "hang" onto.
But, with some careful hand placement and patience, I think this little commission piece turned out pretty well!

Oh So Careful

This ladybug is almost complete! I just have to carve out what will be red on the wings. It's tricky getting the antennea and legs as thin as I'm wanting :: similar to when I carved the maidenhair fern
Lots of little breaks are needed so I don't cut too far!

The ladybugs are all ready for carving! Stay tuned for their progress...


Yesterday we celebrated Nisse's 1st birthday :: complete with pup pie and presents! 

The Birthday girl

Abby was much more motivated to open the presents than Nisse :)

Happily chewing on her new toy after the party guests left :)
