I haven't felt like painting and I was afraid I'd begin to fear painting again. I tend to do this to myself! I feel like I have to try to paint something whether I want to or not...so I hope J.W. Waterhouse isn't rolling in his grave over this one! I did it as a study, I did teach myself a thing or too so that was good! Anyway, I am posting it just to keep my blog going. I hope you don't mind! I am laughing here! Oh I see more that I need to do on this! I do love the computer for that reason, it is helpful to see things in a different light! Now for another one! I have a few going so that I keep some momentum.

just finished this one. I cut the stem off a wine glass and soldered the end and added wire with a charm. (I saw this done in Somerset Workshop, I can't remember the issue!) I made the fairy with paperclay and wire and yarn and various material for the vignette, I used a made in China praying mantis. She is holding a star wand and I made her wings from transparancy. Also various forest material and acrylic paint. The glass is glued down with Locktite...that stuff works really well but hard to get out of the little bottle unless you have strong hands to squeeze with! I am going to sell this in my Etsy store as soon as I adjust the size, etc. you know all that darn figuring out image sizes for Etsy! The worst part of Etsy for me!

I have sold 4 paintings and 5 dolls between eBay and Etsy! So far I am happy! I am posting the mixed media collage Kindoms Not of This World later and I have posted on ebay my Prescious Treasures framed acrylic painting. Fingers crossed I just hope someone falls in love with them and wants them!

My first Angel. This is mixed media/collage on 6" x 12" wood panel. I had started this one a year ago and just finished it. I have not painted an Angel so when I looked at her face I thought she looked like an Angel to me so why not!
Sunny days and great temperature this week...YaY! Great Angel painting weather!

I created this doll in Jane DesRosier's Cloth and Clay doll class last year. It was for the Heart Challenge. The body is cloth, Jane DesRosier's patter and I put mine on a wooden base with a dowel for support. Her crown is made of old text and her face, hair and hands are of paperclay. I used a crossword puzzle for her apron...love is a puzzle sometimes afterall! I did have her in my Etsy store with no sale so I thought I'd see what eBay will do for me! I have my Distracted Juggler in my Etsy store and if nothing happens with that I will try to sell it on eBay. I need to sell some of my many creations to make room for more...lol! I know a lot of you understand what I am saying!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

I am so happy the 4th is over! Don't misunderstand me the celebrations are great but I would rather they be in designated areas and not in our neighborhoods where we have 80' tall timbers all around us. Yes every 4th of July I am the one who prays for rain and lot's of it! There was one house fire yesterday afternoon a few blocks East of us, thank goodness it did not destroy their house as far as I can tell! I also thank God our neighbor across the street from us went somewhere else to celebrate this year because the last two years she had big parties, her men guests were letting off BOMBs, yes the illegal ones! (What is it about men and loud noise?) The men, her guests hid the illegal fireworks/bombs in their trucks! Everytime you'd see them digging in the corners of there trucks while sheepishly looking over their shoulder was the warning sign or tell "get ready for another BOMB and sure enough!" This year I took one and a half tranquilizers and slept through it all and it did rain...yay! Today I have a tranquilizer hangover so it is just a skethching and playing computer gamesand drinking strong coffee for me!
Here are two images for now, a pencil sketch, and one of Fwed trying to pretend he is an extension of my laptop keyboard so that I may touch him a little! (I see I need to work on my sketch some more.) Tonight I am putting two more paintings on ebay, will show you later.
I do hope the rest of you had a safe and fun 4th!
The moment waits for you....
