Golden Maneki Neko

Golden Cat

Hello friends! Hope you had a great week so far.
 I just stopped by to say hi and show you my new Maneki Neko.
 Her name is "Chuboobaa", she loves all shades of pink, but her favorite color is fuchsia.
 I made her with polymer clay and painted it with gold acrylic color.
 Her necklace is made a brass bead and pink thread.
Hope you have a wonderful Friday and weekend :o)

In my Etsy shop

This illustration and the matching one (mother and baby) are among my best sellers on Etsy. Many people asked me for different hair and skin colors during the past few years, so I decided to add 4 more hair/skin combinations to my shop.

I might be able to do other combinations too, just let me know :o)

Maneki Neko

Maneki Neko

Do you remember this guy from my sketchbook? I just made a clay version of it.
 His name is Zardalou, he loves fish, but he never goes fishing because he hates to get wet.
He just buys fresh fish from fish market.

He is a small cat

In my hand!
He's a bit bigger than older versions of Maneki Neko.

Beach pebbles

Beach pebbles

A few weeks ago we went by the beach of Lake Ontario for a walk and I collected some
 lovely smooth pebbles. Hopefully soon I'll paint on some of them.

Snowy beach

This was the first time that I was visiting a snowy beach. It was very different from a summer beach,
but it has its own beauty.

Ice between snow and water

As you can see there is an icy area between snow and water and I fell down just like how
 people fall down in cartoons (first two legs move forward and ...)
 in a second my iPhone was somewhere in the air and I was
 lying down on my back aching all over!
 Well, I was lucky that I didn't break a leg! No one says pebble hunting is easy when
everywhere is covered with ice and snow!

Dogs in snow

Do dogs LOVE snow? I had never seen dogs that happy before, they were rolling in snow and playing!
