Here’s another new artwork for my upcoming exhibit at Burnt Bridge Cellars www.burntbridgecellars.com  – it’s titled

Paws For Coffee by Clancy – 16 x 12 x 2 inches – hand dyed paper, found paper and acrylic on cradled board.

Here’s what inspired it: I can sometimes get so busy that I forget to take time to be present in the moment, to pause and smell the coffee. This is me – remembering.

The diamond motif is because I was thinking of the maze-like labyrinth quality that a busy life sometimes has.  I chose a dachshund character for that breeds digging ability, chosen as an inspiration for me to “dig out” from the (a)maze-ing world what’s really important to me.

Doing my short narrative – poem plus illustration – practice again. Perhaps I should call it “dog drawing plus words”?

Ponder – By Sue Clancy –

There once was a dog named Ponder

Who was full of curiosity and wonder

“What’s it like in the lea?

or for people at sea?

Oh what is it like over yonder?”

An art commission I did was delivered yesterday to it’s new happy home – along with a pdf file of how I created the artwork. The commission is titled “Preying for Peas”.  The client had asked for more information about how I work – so I did a blow-by-blow pdf file for them with the help of Judy who took the photos.  Well, the client, and the other people at the party yesterday found the pdf file interesting, and it seemed to add to the enjoyment of the actual artwork, so I thought to myself “Self, it might be good to post that on your website and blog.” So here it is: AboutPreyingForPeas (and on http://sueclancy.com/fine-art/)
