It's been a productive week!
1. I am sick and tired of all the holy-crap mess that is my studio and my ceramic/pouring area! Therefore, I have sold my doll molds to a lucky dollmaker in Georgia. (I have molds for hundreds of dolls...and I only make originals now!). She should be picking them up in October so between now and then I have to get all of them cleaned up, taped up and organized for her. Then I can start to actually get organized!! Of course, if you know me, you know there's also an ulterior motive.....I really want a potter's wheel so I can make funky bowls, paintbrush vessels, plates, etc. with my own art (and my own weird sense of humor....I have ideas, ideas!) handpainted on them.
2. I have also been working like crazy. My paintings are very detailed in person. I know it's very hard to see all the tiny detail online but it's there. That being said, I have completed 3 paintings this week. I am still in the 5.5" x 5.5" square series. They are below. I need some opinions, please....do you like them to be darker, like "Little Red" and "Is This Yours"...or do you like them bright like my usual work? I am torn. I love the wax overcoat but it definately makes them darker. I appreciate your opinions!
3. I also did several pen and ink drawings on board, mounted on wood. I will be painting them but I wanted you to see them this way first. I think they would make cool stamps!
I love you all!!!!! Thanks for reading!
