September 2022 | Mini Betta, Triple Cats, Winston

Topics: Mini Betta Fish, Triple Scrollwork Cats, Winston the Dog

It’s not quite the end of September, but I’ll save the few remaining projects I have for an October article. In September 2022 I was able to complete the Betta Tutorial, a Triple Scrollwork Cat piece, and Winston the Dog’s portrait. Whew!

Betta Fish 2.0

If you recall, I created a large 12″ x 12″ Betta Fish over the spring and it sold almost immediately. It was so popular that I decided to make a Patreon Tutorial of it, but in a smaller size. The new Betta is 9″ x 9″, but is nearly identical. It is currently for sale, click Buy to own this beautiful, one-of-a-kind piece.

Triple Original Scrollwork Cat

It’s been a while since I have made scrollwork cats, but after opening up the Etsy listing this spring, I got two orders. One for a single cat (see last month’s article) and a triple cat that shipped on September 12th. This particular triple cat was unique in that I revamped my template so that the middle cat looked like an Oriental Shorthair.

Winston the Dog

I got a LOT of dog portrait requests after appearing in the Downeast Magazine this spring. So many that I’ve kind of been flailing around trying to get them done in a reasonable amount of time. Well, that concept is out the window at this point and I’ve switched to a “When It’s Done, It’s Done” philosophy. I’ve also stopped guaranteeing time-frames. All new commissions are wait-listed through mid-2023. If you have a project you want to get on the books, do it before I fill up for all of 2023. Contact me to reserve a slot.

Upcoming Projects

This fall I have several projects in the works – and the hope is that I’ll have enough time to get them all done so they don’t spill over into 2023.
