Like the rains that are mostly absent in the winter here, but are now back in earnest with thunderstorms nearly every night, so have I been absent this winter/spring but now I'm back. To be more precise, I've been here all along, only I haven't created anything new for the shop in much too long. My time has been filled with the ranch, more animals, and simply re-charging my own well of inspiration.
But I have been paying attention to the stats for the shop -- where people come from and what they look at. My sense is that people are looking to see if there is anything new for sale. I do know that the 4-way wrap has been my most popular item and I just completed a special order for 3 more of them. Its always a kick when someone hears of my work by word-of-mouth and makes a big order. With that in mind, I'm in the process of creating more of these in several additional colors.
Here are 2 recently completed wraps, one in teal, the other magenta, and soon to be listed for sale:
There is also a moss green in progress:
And, soon to come, one in indigo.
As much as I work to get the colors true in my photo editing software, when I upload them here they appear very dull to me -- not nearly as beautiful as they are in reality. I expect them to look more true to life when I get them listed for sale. I'll post an announcement when that happens, so stay tuned.
And here's one of the creatures that I've been occupied with lately:
I believe he/she is a Harris Hawk. I've been caring for him since he apparently fell out of the nest and barely had any true feathers, about 6 weeks ago. Its amazing how much personality a bird like this can have. I think we have bonded.
