WINDSTONE EDITIONS "PAINT-YOUR-OWN" PHOENIX – METALLIC PERIWINKLE EYES
This is a Windstone Editions Paint-Your-Own Phoenix figurine by M. Peña. Many artists and collectors have asked for un-painted Windstone pieces that they can custom paint. This Phoenix is designed with all the detail of our painted production Windstones and is intended to satisfy serious artists who want the challenge of painting their own M. Peña sculpture.
This figurine is cast in the same mineral stone material as our production Windstone sculptures and can be painted with any method (be it brush, airbrush, or other technique). High quality acrylic paints are recommended.
This Phoenix measures approximately 7-1/2” tall. He has metallic periwinkle glass eyes. He ships in his original box direct from our Windstone Editions factory in Oregon. For indoor use only.

Since 1984, museum-quality reproductions of Melody Peña’s sculptures have been perfectly cast in natural mineral stone and meticulously hand-painted in our North Hollywood, California studios (now relocated to Corvallis, Oregon).
At the heart of every piece created by master sculptor M. Peña is the artist’s passion for living creatures. This passion, coupled with a lifelong study of animal behavior and anatomy, and an astonishing gift for three-dimensional art, results in sculpture so intriguing and lifelike it is without equal.
Growing up in California, Peña surrounded herself with animals. Keeping more than two dozen aquariums in her childhood bedroom, a pet toad in a wastebasket, and a chicken in a bucket, her collection of pets soon became the subjects of her artwork.
In college, Peña studied biology and zoology in addition to painting, drawing, and sculpture.
Today, the artist is never far from her animals--they are the living well from which Peña draws inspiration and the models for the incredibly accurate detail in her work.
