Little K



$100 - 6x6" original oil painting with 3/4"sides 
Remember these adorable Koala clips?! I wore one on my knapsack all through junior high school and another on the collar of my winter coat. Well, I recently found Little K here at a garage sale and I happily thought, 'he can be part of my finger puppet collection... and my painting series'. #toocute

Abby and her whiskers

Abby the Mouse has the cutest whiskers ever! Not to mention her adorable pink nose. Finger puppets are so fun and, it turns out, a blast to paint. I'm using bright contrasting colours for my backgrounds for this series. My hand studies continue with my little puppet collection helping me out. Sides painted.
