AHA update!

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea!  This is the theme this month for the AHAartistsstudio, so in keeping with it, I have painted a couple of pieces showing that cats really can do the water thing, if they CHOOSE to!

My bathing beauty is complete with flips, beach hat, shades, polka dot bikini (not yellow or itsy bitsy) and, of course, her horsey inner tube!  Go kitty!  She’s painted on a 4″ x 6″ canvas panel.
Diving for fishies!  Kitty has his snorkel  gear, but  the net is waaaay too small for anything.  No matter – he’s having a fun adventure!  This piece is entitled Sea Hunt, Kitty Style, and is painted on a wrapped canvas, measuring 4″ x 12″.   Come and join us for some seaside fun at!  See you there!

What’s this?  Uncle Sam X 2?!  Well, it means there are two Uncle Sam ornaments for you to see on the American Holiday Artists Studio today.  We have updated, and here is a pic of my two offerings!

They have sculpted paperclay features on driftwood from the Pacific Ocean.  Stop on by the American Holiday Artists Studio to take a look at all of the goodies for this month!  See you there!

Hippity Hop!

It’s official!  The calendar really does say it is spring, even though there are snowstorms in the US!  We at the AHA Artists Studio have updated our site, and we have a breath of warmer times with our observance of the Year of the Rabbit!  Take a look at my offering this month!

A bit of a surprise on his face!  His egg has hatched!

Join the circus!

Have you ever thought about running away and joining the circus?  Do you love the spectacle of it all?  Do you enjoy clowning around?  If you do, you MUST visit the American Artists Studio Marketplace as we launch our revamped site today!  Yes!  For February, we have a circus theme, so expect to see lots of colorful artwork!  Here’s a glimpse of my piece – The Balancing Act.  A tuxedo kitty is balancing a ball and two blocks in his front paws, a wee bird on his clown nose, and a small clown mouse on one foot!  All this, while balancing on a circus ball!  What a guy!

Come on over to the big top and see all of the goodies we have in store for you!  Join us at the AHA studio!
