"Big Ears" - SOLD
Click Here to Bid
I found this cute little mouse at a real dive of a thrift store with my mom this weekend. We decided that the real finds are often at the dives where you have to squeeze around towers of crap and search through boxes. As opposed the the well lit thrift stores where everything is organized and easy to see - then all the good stuff is found right away, by someone else! The mouse is ceramic and painted gold. A student of mine recently asked me how to acheive the look of gold. I said "there is no secret - paint what you see." Well, shamefully I admit I wasn't successful in acheiving the look of gold here. I will try again tomorrow and pass on anything I learn.
