Tini Tile

"Tini Tile"

4 1/2"x4 1/4" glaze on ceramic stoneware
$15 plus $5 for shipping in the US to purchase

This is the first and possibly only painting I'll ever get done of our dog Bettini that was created in real time while she was sleeping. Very rarely am I able to capture her likeness before she shifts position. It was done using low fire under glaze that was brushed on. Glaze does not work like paint. Much more difficult to get smooth brush strokes, because it dries almost instantly.

I really love working with my wife on things like this. I'll post more of these tiles we did together in the coming days and weeks.
