In 1999, my then ten-year-old Lizzie and I met young Tess in June 1999, at the Dachshund Club of America National Field Trial. Tess looked up from a tightly curled position, as if to greet a friend. It was magic! For the first time I memorized a pose -- the glorious curve following the left side of her ribcage to her slim waist and hips left an indelible impression on me. THEY inspired "So Good to See You."
I created "So Good to See You" ML for two persons in two states who wanted "So Good to See You" as a life-sized miniature long-haired dachshund.
Each "So Good to See You" ML is signed, numbered and made by hand, one at a time in Colorado, USA. Each includes my mark, Enjoy!
Regarding Patina, the top image is of the Patina I call "Tomatoes."
Below are two views of the “Toad” patina. It has a slightly lighter, brighter look. It is closer to, yet not, crème
Both look very traditional and are beautiful on the piece.
