Print Blocks

One new thing we are adding is Print Blocks, using our past art work we Mod Podge the print to a 6x6 block. The picture is the first test run. Everything seems to be working well the finished product looks great. Plan to work on some larger ones this week. We plan to have 100 by March for the Pet Expo.

Brady Bunch Horse update

The Brady Bunch Horse is moving along, put the base on and added some structure to the body. After watching a few episodes from the DVD, we found out they have about three or four horses around the house.

We also watched the made for TV movie Growing up Brady based on the book from Barry Williams. It was a little depressing. It kind of took some of the magic away but we just popped in the original show and just like the Brady family everything was fine.

I did get a few more watercolors done for the Keystone Dachshund Show in a few months. The plan for this week is to work on some
print blocks.

Time to Work

Up early, snow on the ground and very cold in Pa, off to work with my sister for the day.
putting together the Brady Bunch- Horse.  Brady, Brady, Brady: The Complete Story of The Brady Bunch as Told by the Father/Son Team who Really Know

Everyone loves the Brady Bunch. You can ask anyone and they will tell you they watched BB at 3:00.
My sister just ordered the TV special based on Greg Bradys' book.  That will be fun

Up to my elbows in watercolors  Work day with my sister and all we did was work on watercolor prints.
We are going to try some artist blocks with the cut out prints. Mod-Podge Montage, Collage, Decoupage Kit
One thing we like to use is Mod-Podge or a water down mixture of Elmers Glue 50/50. Things have been slow but we should have a few things for the Chester County Art Association
You never know when someone is going to buy your art.

Brady Bunch Horse

Tuesday is project day with my sister. After finishing some watercolor prints we started watching old
Brady Bunch reruns and we started talking about the house they lived in, we even found a picture of the house on the internet, the one they actually used.

 So we got the idea to make the statue of the horse they had in the living room. I Just got home and plan to list the watercolors on ebay and get to work on some sketches of the horse so we can build it out of paper mache. This should be fun and interesting, I wonder how may people can recognize it.
