New Things are Happening!

I know I said I was going to do an Artfest post but since most of the pictures have already been seen on Facebook, I think I'll just move on into the "after Artfest" work!  I will say that I had the BEST students and such an amazing time!  Thank you all and I hope it was a great experience for you all, as well.  If you haven't seen the pictures, you can visit my Facebook page and see all the fun here:  Sunny's Facebook page

Now for new things!  My dolls are in the current issue of Art Doll Quarterly!  I was so excited to see them in the beginning pages of the May 2012 issue.  I thought the photography was superb and I was thrilled to have been given 5 pages!  The schedule is still being worked out, but I have been asked to teach the little sisters of my Dollandia Girls at Art Is...You! Petaluma, CA along with a 2 day pendant class and an altered journal class.
I've been working on some filming for an upcoming online class.  I won't be ready for a little while because I have to get happy with the paintings before I can feel good about putting them out into the world.  I filmed all last weekend and ultimately decided to start over!  Haha!  But I did want everyone who is asking to know that it is in the works!
Here are the paintings completed this weekend:

Do you notice that this little guy called "Popcorn" is actually a painting of one of my favorite pendants?
I was very pleased with the following painting.  Her name is Clara.  The text says: "then the family sent Clara away to school hoping to have her overcome her painful shyness".  I think it worked!
Then I made her into a bag!  This one has been sold but I'll be making others.
So that's been my week so far.  I hope you are finding time to be creative!
