Newly Sold of My Creations

Little Fleur, A Doll on a Tag

I love to take shipping tags and convert them into art. Little Fleur just sold and so I'm sharing her here and now. 

My Amy in Vintage Purple

This Amy of mine was sold, or so I thought, but no matter how long I waited, the-would-have-been-buyer never sent the money, and so I re-listed her and voila, she has sold and now resides in New York!

Tillie a Queen Anne

Tillie did not last long on my ETSY Store and I am delighted to say that she now resides in New York too!  I loved painting flowers on her bust. I am breaking away from tradition and convention. The artist in me no longer longs to reproduce exactly the old. I am looking forward to more adventures in utilizing mixed-media, collage, etc. into my world of doll making.

Laly Mille and Encaustic

I haven't been here in a long time! My mind has been turned toward learning new art forms, and these are the first results from a delightful class by a lovely French artist. This is, of course, an online class. Her name is Laly Mille, and here is where you can go to see all about her:

These are my first ever encaustic pieces. Utilizing burlap and plaster to create the substrate, that Laly taught us was such a pleasure! This is collage art too.

This series of three has a wee story. Laly beautifully explained to us how to gather the words we long to use in art. 

I am still learning from her, and so I shall be back soon with my next piece.

Happiness to all of you!!!
