Fox facepaint

Well, I found my costume fox ears and tail from last year, and decided to have some fun.
The materials i used are whatever stuff I found around the house. Some old eye-pencils, eyeshadows, talcum powder, blush, some kind of face cream, face powder, mascara.
took a long time but it was fun and i enjoyed the result. The top of the face was oranger than it looks in the pics, and the bottom of the face whiter than it looks.

Painting of a Puppy

This watercolor marks the first painting that I have done in a very long time.
I'm pretty happy with it all in all!
I used watercolor paints that had been given to me as a birthday gift a few years ago.
 (People seem to thing that everyone who is creative can paint. I don't understand why they would think that. All they've seen me do is doodle.)
As well as the little cup of water, the plastic bowl for mixing, and a pretty crappy average sized paintbrush. In retrospect maybe I should have used a few, not just the one.
It's drawn from the perspective of a puppy looking up at you from way down on the floor, while you are standing up. I'm not sure that's obvious in the picture... Also, since the puppies wouldn't sit in place and I didn't feel like painting from a photo, it's from imagination.

Origami Dragon

This is a Thing. It is possible. I HAS A PAPER DRAGON.
A friend gave me this awesomeness as a gift, made during their stay at my home while we were elsewhere. They enjoyed their stay, enjoyed all the dogs and the peace and quiet that allowed them to study, so they made this for me and I shall keep it forever and ever and ever [i has a dragon!!]
& this friend happens to also be a genius at all kinds of complex puzzles.
isn't it so awesome???
