Hi everyone.  As you know, this month's Art Club theme was 'Device Vice'.  I have to be honest - I struggled to think of what to do this month.  Somehow I got onto the idea of Axe Murderers - the device being an 'axe' and the vice being 'murder'.  A long shot I know, however, this idea lead me to find out about Henry Lee Moore who was an American serial killer in the early 20th century.  He was rather viscious with an axe, and killed his very own mother and grandmother, along with an entire family.  You can read more about him here.  Out of all of the axe murderers that I could find online, Henry Lee Moore had the most interesting face and hair!  This recent interest in axe murders combined with another recent urge to try painting a 'pocket friend' on stones lead me to making a pocket murderer.  My submission this month is a very miniature artwork.....hope you like!

Pocket Friends

Last night I had a go at making some of these Pocket Friends! I think they are very cute and will make a nice little gift for friends. 

I saw the idea on Etsy and couldn't resist having a go myself!   Ill spray them with clear varnish to seal the paint.

Working on a small scale like this isn't usually my preference, however, I really enjoyed it.
