As winter loosens its grip on Idaho Barry and I are tempted to go outside to start planting our garden... soon, very soon!
In the meantime there is plenty to keep us both busy in the studio.
Barry is steadily building our inventory of the new "Backbeat Thunder" draft horse resins. We're currently targeting a March 20 release date for the unpainted resins.
I've completed the first of the fifteen "Backbeat Thunder" resins that I'm planning to paint and named him "Doyle".
Yes, fifteen. A bit too ambitious perhaps, but we'll see! In keeping with the percussive theme, each of the resins I paint will pay tribute to a favorite drummer. Nice strong names: Doyle, Cedric, Burch, Bart, etc. It's a great excuse to study the liner notes of favorite albums even more closely!
"Doyle" will be up for sale very soon. Folks will have a couple of days to view his photos at lafnbear.com, then we'll find him a new home. A strong case can be made for either a lottery or an auction. Frankly, it's getting late and I hate to make decisions when I'm tired. So we'll leave that one to a fresh brain in the morning.
In the meantime, think Spring!
