I have decided to complete this lovely figurine that never made it into Ivy's production. She is wonderful and is one of two in existence. I will paint them identical - twins so to speak. I will keep one for my private collection and the other I wish to put up on Ebay. The funds will help minimize the expense of the new kickstarter launch - advertising, video (over $1k) and/or help pay for the studio cleanup (which I am currently armed with my bucket and rags and broom and vacuum and finding wonderful things).
My studio does not have air-conditioning and it tends to resemble a sauna on these warm days in July... and I am used to battling with the dog over the prime spot from the fan's wind flow, although, I usually let him win. :)
I will keep you informed and updated when this rare gem is up on ebay. I need to get my studio prepped for the filming of video first.
I can't not remember where I have ever sold a hand-painted original Ivy piece... I do believe one hand-painted original currently resides in Florida in loving hands but other than that... I can't recall any others. This will be a first.
Have a wonderful day with sweet Ivy Dreams!
