Squeeeeeeeeeee!

Now I am not prone to bouts of emotion. I am deeply conservative, and sophisticated (well not really sophisticated, actually not even close! But I would dearly love to be!). I do not suffer from the giggles or other girly outbreaks, but today was most certainly one out of the box!

I giggled and danced (yes I danced ...no it was not pretty) and grinned my way all around the kitchen/studio. Because these are the photos I received this morning from Jaime Baker!



Is he not absolutely wonderful! Jaime has drawn out his character and brought him to breathing life.

Look at that kissy spot!

The roaning on his cheek!
The colour and shading is his tail, I want to run my fingers through his hair!

The story behind this little fellow? I was the c0-judge at River City Live (partnered by the uber talented Liz Shaw) and our Stablemate Supreme Champion was an exquisite dapple grey painted by Jaime on the (I think) Warmblood mold. He was the most delightful horse. The smoothness of the layers, the tiny intricate and fine hair by hair detailing. The more I looked at him, the more I saw.

I came home from Adelaide knowing that I had to get Jaime to paint one of my horses. Finding out that Jaime did not only, not take commissions, but also preferred Stablemate scale sank my heart. I had never CM'ed a stablemate or even a classic scale for that matter, I did not know if I could mange it, but determined that I would sculpt something that would catch Jaime's eye, the Welshie was created.

So you could say (as corny as it sounds) this little fellow is a dream come true, and so very worthy of the kitchen dancing.

In fact I might just dance some more!

Thank you Jaime!

DUN Donation.

Breyer Marigold is now finished, I am really happy with how she has turned out. I could see her all tacked up as a show pony, first ridden or leading rein.
She is now heading off to Sommer Prosser for some new clothes. So you could say she is going home, as Sommer is the sculptor of the delightful Marigold Mold.
I can hardly wait to see what Sommer chooses for her. Once finished she will be back here for her raffle.
For tickets contact Lisa at liswin@iinet.au
Stay tuned!
