Fountain Pen Quilled Hedgehog, Original Surreal Drawing by Jenny Armitage

The Pen is Mightier Than the Quill (16 x 16 ink) SOLD

Like most of my surreal drawings, the title of this little piece came first.  It’s only after I’d played around with the possibilities for awhile that this little hedgehog came to have ink squirting out of his fountain pens.

Bi Polar Bear, Surreal Pen and Ink, by Jenny Armitage

BiPolar Bear (India Ink on cold-press paper 12 x 14 inches).


Bi-polar disorder is a bear to suffer through.  Being a bipolar bear may not be much better.  But this one seems to be barring up well.

I have changed him up a little digitally:

Tabby’s Favorite Window

Tabby's Favorite Window, Painting by Jenny Armitage

Tabby's Favorite Window (11 x 14 watercolor on clayboard) Available

I often get asked at art fairs how long it takes to paint one of my paintings. It’s an unanswerable question.  Some paintings take days and even repeated attempts each taking days.   Some paintings just fall out of the brush in minutes.  This painting just fell out of the brush.   And that despite being painted at the State Fair as a demo.

The reference photo is a picture I took of a girl friend’s cat some years ago. I don’t often paint animals, but my gallery is having a group “critters” show and so I browsed my old photos looking for a suitable cat, and this tabby popped up. Now that I’ve done him, I rather like him.  He will be on display at Art in the Valley all this September.
