Kim said...

wonderful Amy!!
and such detail....
the centerpiece makes for a wonderful focal point while the rest of the design has an organic feel to it...

Fantastic work Amy, you must have enormous patience to do such detailed work.

Thank you thank you Kim...this one was like an archeological dig...when I first looked @ it, all I saw were the bars, but then I cleaned it and saw all the details...YIKES!!! I did a reverse rubbing to get the detail the same from one side to the other.. a little trick I picked up along the way...now, to see how they re-produce and hopefully, make a series of cards...have a great Friday and HAPPY MOTHER's DAY...XXXXXXX...love..:))

Thank you so much Bernard...patience comes w/ the gift...it's a package deal...seriously, I took my time w/ these doorknobs, but certainly, I do get 'in the zone', and time disappears...:)))

Thank you Maria...I think that the craftsmen of these beautiful Victorian doorknobs were very creative!!! I enjoyed drawing them...:))

Whew, Heather...this one really was a challenge...but, each section of this doorknob, in it's time, finally came together...I will do some very light work on the back plate on all of them...I'm looking forward to see how they reproduce...
A VERY HAPPY MOTHER's DAY to you as well (hugs)...we're headed into NYC tomorrow to have dinner w/ my Mom...:)))

Hi Amy,

I know this isn't exactly a comment, but I couldn't find your e-mail address, and I wanted to write and tell you about a new website for artists, musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers: www.PutItOn.com. I've been using the site as an artist and have my work there, and am trying to support it because I believe in it. Basically, the site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with NO commission taken!). The site gives artists a FREE gigabyte of space to showcase their portfolios, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, and if you like it too, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself or link to it on your site it would be greatly appreciated! We are trying to make a go of helping out artists everywhere and are trying to get the word out, so please help us out if you like the site after checking it out! Thank you!

All the best,
Sarah at PutItOn.com

This is such a beautiful design. Interestingly I have been looking at the toilets tiles, to do an exact copy of it, but haven't.
