52 Projects #14 Worry Doll

Worry? Who me? Cloud over my head… I started this small fellow who is a bit bigger than the the size of my hand a couple of weeks ago. He languished in a basket with some other dolls until last evening. I new he needed the bells for comic relief as his mouth is tense […]

<a href=”https://www.bloglovin.com/blog/14620307/?claim=mqeunegs7ac”>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a> (bloglovin can’t seem to find my blog, guess I have to do this again, ugh.   I’m a week ahead.

Happy 2017

But she feels pretty jazzy to me.  The elves have […]

Running in Circles

I’ve been away from the blog world for almost two weeks.  Been running in circles while developing some new classes for 9-13 years olds for the gallery and town.  Making samples, getting ready for a workshop – Art-Is-You, where I get to see some long lost friends.  Face time is just not the same as […]

Big head

WIP on my big head. Scaled oversize from the human form. Chop saw work and wood next…. Still having a romance with the guy behind the head. Got to love the man that poses with your creations. Adoring gesso and chalk paint and coffee as paint mediums. Found object eyes spoke to me. More next […]
