Studio Madness Again!

Greetings & Salutations!

I can't believe it's Friday already! Where does the time go? I would say, right out the Studio Windows! LOL I love waking up, smelling the Java brewing and planning my day in the Studio. Sometimes it doesn't go according to plan, but those times I treasure because MAGIC happens, and when it happens, I just go with it! I haven't bonded with my sewing machine much lately. However, today we are bonding again and making wonderful Art Doll Clothes!

My Marie Antoinette painting has been staring at me for months. Why is it when you begin a painting, or I should say, when I begin a painting, I never seem to finish them fast. I have walked by this painting countless times. Some days I add a splash of paint here, a piece of vintage collage paper there, and sometimes nothing at all. I guess I like the paintings to "SIMMER." LOL
I was inspired by my painting to create some Art Dolls to go along with the painting. As you can see, I still am working on them. Just like the painting, I let the dolls SIMMER too!

Now for these little gals, I will be completing them today as they will be heading off to their new homes. I can't wait to add their Knitted Shrugs and Leg Warmers that I hand knitted for them. I'm giggling in anticipation to seeing them done. LOL

Gotta LOVE Polka Dots!

In their GLORY!

Oh my, these little babies need some clothes! These are waiting for me to find my MUSE!

I keep knitting washcloths and my husband steals them! LOL I promise I will have some of these wonderful, hand-knitted Washcloths up in my Etsy Shop Very Soon!

Yes, as you can see, my Yarn Stash is quickly growing! I just freaking LOVE YARN!

Update on my DRAWING...This is about it! So many things to do and never enough time to get everything done! Will be posting an update on my Drawing soon, so make sure you stay tuned!

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL & CREATIVE WEEKEND!
Spend time with your Art Supplies, no matter what they are...Play and Bond with them. You never know what new discoveries you will find!
Until Next Time

Over at my blog you will see mounds of Wool on my desk behind my naked Grave Flowers!! Yes, the wool speaks...

You know, one of your dollies could easily be turned into a dark flower!! Dark Orphan... one of the deadly sins....

I'm glad I'm not the only artist to swing from knitting to painting with a break to make the occassional doll! It drives my hubby crazy, haha!

On an earlier post, I noticed that some of your dolls were painted black, do you mind me asking why and what your process is? I love the gals with the great long legs, they'll need legwarmers for those pins :)

slommler said...

Your "girls" look so happy and I am loving their outfits!!
Hugging you
