Something else....!

Here are this week's paintings.  It's funny...I realized yesterday that I haven't painted a "Pretty Girl" in quite some time.  I'm beginning to think that illustration may be the path that I go down at some point.  Maybe a children's book?  Something to think about...

The colors in this painting are so much more vivid.  I truly hate my photography!  LOL

Now, you'll have to get ready for this one!  Hahaha!  I love this kind of stuff!  Everything is painted except for the face of this odd little girl I call "Nest Thief" and the nest.  Her face is handsculpted ceramic, glazed and painted.  Her teeth are sculpted separately and inserted so that they are 3-D.  The nest is wire and beads and actually swings by a nail.  Her hair is a combination of clippings from a friend's poodle and wool straight off a sheep!  I know...I am so weird!  I'm okay with that!



I'm finishing up the chains on the pendants, they are coming along nicely.  I did a few bracelets as well but they aren't quite ready yet.  More soon...

I am psyched by these two paintings--both image and COLOR use. Quite envious--in a good way :) and the crazy dog in the first and the bird in the second are classics!

Hey Sunny--thanks for your comments about Theo Ellesworth and the compliments about what I make! I def. am intrigued by the differences in the ways artists approach their work. And I don't think these two paintings of yours look like they are from different sources--both have your style stamp on them :)

If we weren't all a little weird it'd be boring. You use poodle fur and I'm mesmerized by faucets. Haha
