Welcome, Patches… he looks fun, Amy. His face is interesting. He’s not sure you will accept his heart and bird. I like it. Nice close up shots.

Thanks Judy. Patches’ head has been sitting on my desk for several months. He’s been waiting patiently for a body to hold him. Once the design idea came to me, Patches came developed quite quickly. You’re right; he is a little hesitant isn’t he?

What a great guy your Patches is, Amy! He’s so colorful and offers his heart so openly. You must have had a lot of fun creating him. Wonderful job! Yes, very nice closeups.

Thanks Karen. I was pleased with how quickly he came together. Love how that can happen when you start with a kernel of an idea and just the muse carry you.
