"The Dragon's Pearl" rendered using ceramic glazing at The Painted Plate in Olympia, WA
Today is the opening day for voting on the 10 new Traffic Control Box Wraps that will be purchased by the City of Olympia and placed on local traffic control boxes. I have entered a piece of art, though it has been cropped to fit the required dimensions. My painting is entitled, "The Dragon's Pearl". It was completed using ceramic glazes and through a local business, The Painted Plate.

"The Painted Pet" Ceramic Art Classes
This is a 3 hour class and NO prior art skills are needed.
I work with you to help you create an artistic representation of your beloved pet, or any animal you love.
This class will use ceramic glazes (paints) and a bisque wear plate as your canvas.
After you register for the event you will need to send me a photo of your pet, or the animal you want to paint, one pet per plate please. You can send it as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org or send it via text to my phone at (360) 292-3129.
It's best if the photo that you decide to use is in focus, or as clear as you can get it, I can work with somewhat fuzzy images, with good lighting. It is best if it is a close up of your pet, I can crop it for you to make sure that your pet, or animal, is the key subject of your painting.
RESERVATIONS ARE ESSENTIAL because I need to collect the images and sketch them onto your canvases prior to the painting day, and there is a class size limit.
When we all meet to paint, you will have a bisque wear plate ready to paint with your pet or animal image sketched onto it.
Once you arrive, I will work with you to help you select paint colors for your portrait. I will also provide some general instructions about painting with ceramic paints, how to mix colors, how to use the different brushes, etc. I will also provide specific art instruction and guidance for your specific portrait.
The cost of the class includes a plate, ceramic paints, brushes, and other materials as needed to complete your painting including the firing of your ceramic art work.
$55.00 per person
I ask that you get me your photo if possible, one week before the scheduled class date, or earlier. This gives me time to prepare your plate for the class.
Because I need to pre-sketch your portrait, and I have limited spaces available, there will be no refunds for no shows.
We ask that you confirm your registration with a $35 dollar deposit per person. The additional $20 will be due when you arrive to take your class.
For your convenience, you can use this PayPal button to make your $35 deposit, per person. PayPal accepts all credit and debit cards. If you would rather mail me a check, you can send it to: Robyn Chance 1725 Medallion Loop NW Olympia, Washington 98502
I am also creating Pet Portraits and other Art Works using Ceramics For Sale and By Commission All the portraits you see here I've hand-drawn & hand-painted. These ceramic portraits have all been created using photographs supplied by the client, or in some cases, photographs I've taken myself.
Whatever medium you decide fits you best, you can rest assured that you will receive a beautiful, high-quality portrait, along with exceptional service that both you and your pet(s) deserve.

Here are some samples of the commissioned ceramic work I have created.
