I suppose I've been quiet lately, because I've been so busy! Summer is always my busy season, and with three conventions complete, I'm just wrapping up the Halloween mask rush and moving onto my last convention of the year, Furpocalypse (formerly known as FurFright). After attending Illuxcon last month, I'm itching to work with oils. The trick is finding the time to work on personal art! Commissions are wonderful, but I need to find time to work on stuff for myself. I'm starting to get antsy.

So, keep an eye out for more paintings, including (as always) my yearly holiday card featuring Solstice the gryphon! She'll likely be trying her paw at some holiday tradition and either succeeding or failing adorably.

Talonflame Pumpkin by windfalcon
Talonflame Pumpkin
So what do I do two days before a convention when I still have preparations to work on?  I carve a pumpkin!  It's all hypnoticdragon's fault, who posted a Salamance pumpkin and then egged me on when I said I was tempted to do a Talonflame pumpkin :|  SEE WHAT YOU MADE ME DO.

So, it's kind of Talonflame, but l took some liberties with the markings, adding actual flame so it would be an interesting lit pumpkin.  Even if it's not recognizable as Talonflame, it's still a cool phoenix pumpkin at least?

Apologies for the blurry second photo - I braced my camera as well as I could while photographing but it still wiggled a little.  Photographing at night is hard :B

Happy Halloween!

I'm so sad that I won't be able to make it to the NYSFA Falconry Meet this year :(  It falls on the same weekend as Furpocalypse and I had to make the difficult decision between work (selling at a convention) or play (going on wonderful falconry adventures in NY state).  Given the choice, I'd much rather go to the falconry meet, but alas, being an adult means I can't skip 'work'. :<

Either way, I had promised I would send a painted feather for their charity raffle as usual, and this year I've painted a Northern Goshawk.  Goshawks are just so awesome, and they usually have at least one at the meet.

Saw-Whet Owl - Leather Mask by windfalcon
Saw-Whet Owl - Leather Mask
For the charity raffle for Horizon Wings' yearly Owl Prowl, I decided on making a Saw-Whet Owl mask, in honor of the new Saw-Whet we have as an educational bird.  Saw-Whet Owls are primarily a northern owl, coming south to New England only during the winter. You usually think of birds flying south to Florida for the winter, but not Saw-Whets - Connecticut winters are warm enough for them!

Hand-carved and painted 7-oz leather.

Black Vulture Leather Mask by windfalcon
Black Vulture Leather Mask
This creepy black vulture mask is all ready for Halloween :)  Black vultures have wonderfully bumpy faces with 'warty' rolls, and I really liked the stony texture this fellow ended up with.  Hand-carved and painted 7-oz leather, painted with acrylics and adorned with black feathers.  This mask was a commission but I do accept custom mask orders!
