I have two long shelves of unpainted resins gathering dust in my basement.
|Not all of them, not even close|
|Still not all of them, still not close|
This has become a source of frustration to me, so when Dolittle arrived last month, I decided to try something different.
Instead of adding her to the basement collection, I spent a couple days researching artists with open books and beer budget prices. I knew what color I wanted her to be, so I focused on painters who had good examples of mealy bay in their portfolios. In the end, I decided to go with Angelica Nelson.This was a leap of faith for me, because I'd never seen Angelica's work in person.
Fortunately, it worked out perfectly.
I could not be more pleased with my new little pony girl.
Who knew the solution to my unpainted resin problem was this simple? I think I'm going to go downstairs and choose another resin to send to another painter!Thank you, Angelica, not just for the pony, but also for restoring my faith in new-to-me painters!
P.S. Cute pony needs a cute name. All suggestions are welcome.
