I've decided to start a new themed post on Thursday's! Once a week, my Mom and I hit the thrift stores (it's kind of our thing and we are a bit addicted). I thought it would be fun to share my finds. I score so many awesome treasures to paint for Illustrated Ink on these trips though, so I feel it's part of my business operations (am I an addict justifying my behavior? Hmmm...) This week, I discovered this ceramic geisha bust:
She's large (about 11" tall) and will be quite the statement piece when I'm done with her! I will post pics of her transformation, of course. ;) When at the register, the clerk actually said it reminded him of an Asian Virgin Mary! Ha, perfect for me! The price? Hello $2.79!
The rest of my week has been spent painting pieces for my upcoming holiday show:
and I finished another rocking horse for my Etsy shop:
"Marcela, a Day of the Dead Rocking Horse" ~Sold~
