Well, I’ve been winding wire again. This time, I thought it would be fun to do a Texas Longhorn. With the big, wide horns and the blocky body, it sounded like a good choice for wire.
There I was up in my studio, listening to some music that a friend recently gave me, winding wire while my cat, Oliver, kept trying to get my attention. He always needs attention the most when I’m doing something that doesn’t include him. What I love about working in my studio is that Oliver insists on hanging out with me while I work. Most of the time while I am painting, Oliver lays on the back rest of my chair as I work. It is so cozy. Aren’t pets great?
-Made with 17 gauge fencing wire as well as finer craft wire for some details such as the tail, ears, horns, and nose.
-I used a pair of needle nose pliers and other types of craft pliers for this piece, as well as a wire cutter and my bare hands (I got a blister to prove it 😉 ).
-Measures approximately 9 inches long by 5 & 1/2 inches tall by 6 inches wide (including the spread of the horns).
Thank you for looking.
