I've been kicking around the idea of a Pet Raincloud for a while. I'm a melancholic soul at times and love a good rainy day. I also love 3D wall hangings, so I combined these joys into a new art piece. Behold - the raincloud:
The frame, for reference, is 5 x 7. This is my test run, so the writing on the bottom may or may not be there when I make these to sell. Also, my handwriting is pretty atrocious, so I have to work on that. It says "even today there is cause for joy." It's a sentiment I must say to myself ten times a day. It's a good thing.
I love it's plushy bumpy poofiness. It's pet-able.
Here's a room shot. This is my "work in progress" shelf in my art studio. You can see a jar of dyed vintage doilies on the left. The little mouse in front of that is a piece I hope to finish this weekend, and that little chubby squirrel (yes, it's a squirrel) is from one of my favorite Etsians, Erin Ellis. Visit her shop, it's really cute! Beside that is one of my vintage flour containers. It's heinously lemon/lime and I love it to death. I broke the big one using it to press water out of a block of Tofu. I still cringe when I think about that. I now have the medium and small jar only, but they're mostly empty. Why am I rambling about this? There you can see the woolly raincloud in all of it's glory - reminding you to be happy, even when it's raining like a son-of-a-gun. Especially then. Rain makes the flowers grow.
These should be available in the shop by Monday providing I can find some decent black frames without breaking the bank. They will sell for $20, frame included. Which is a pretty sweet deal for a pet raincloud.
