Thank you all SO, SO much for all of the encouragement regarding my new clay gals. I couldn't find nicer blog friends, honest! A few people commented that they reminded them of Jenn's "Lulettes" and I have to agree that Jenn has been an inspiration to me. Jenn is not only a lovely artist but a lovely person too and I am a huge fan of her work. In fact, you will see one of her paintings hanging in my living room later on in this post:) My other source of inspiration comes from Christine at DuBuhDu Designs. If you don't know her or her work, she makes to most amazing polymer dolls that you just HAVE to see. A while back she did some paintings of her dolls and I remember thinking, "Hey, that's a clever idea. I should make dolls of my paintings." So that was where the seed was planted. I get bored very easy so that is why I make so many different kinds of things but I hope to make a few more of these figures and have an update soon.
I am in the middle of finishing two more commissioned family portraits that need to go out before Christmas. Here is one I just finished for Liz from TwoLeft Hands. If you buy or sell on Etsy, you probably know her and her fabulous shop. I painted her and her five siblings as a gift to her father who always says he wants "Six Nice Kids" for Christmas. So this is what I came up with. I had a good time with this one! I am also happy to tell you that with my new printer, I can make prints and note cards of your family portraits for extra gift giving goodies.
Last but not least...here are a few pictures of my house now that I am FINALLY getting it together after the remodel and painting craziness. Eeek! This is the longest post I've ever done!
The small bit of decorating I've done so far...my vintage bottle brush tree collection with my grandmothers skaters.
Where the red wall and yellow wall meet...my beloved Frida doll by Tascha.
Framed giant number/bird flash cards. I've had these framed and
sitting in my studio for over a year and a half, just waiting to be hung up.
New french doors that lead to , and HIDE, my messy studio:)
Said messy studio....only a peek at the cleaner part!
Also from my grandmother....they have a name but I forget it right now.
...and these are from her too.
They need some snow!
