"African Goddess" #5 of 8 series






Here she is.... my "African Goddess". I actually got quite a lot done this weekend. It helps when my husband has all kinds of important sporting events to watch on the weekends like the US Open and the Soccer of course. It's doodle land for me and my girls. My girls actually started pieces of their own this weekend as well. We were doodle happy with our paint pens trying to stay cool inside. It's been 94 everyday for the past few weeks so unless we are at the pool we are inside making art, just as happy as can be(O: We did visit with my parents for Father's Day which was a family packed afternoon...... always a blast!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Father's Day weekend(O:

I'm glad I've taken photos of these paintings in stages because I actually like the last two stages equally. This way I can make some prints of both versions. There are a few other goodies I plan to make using these images so stay tuned(O: I just have 3 more paintings to embellish with details until this series is complete then I will focus on the boutique style products I plan to create with the images.

  5. Exotic and exquisite! Each lady is more beautiful than the last. If this is the result of heat, let the heatwave continue! (Just Kidding! Hope it cools down soon for you!) Hugs, Terri xoxo

  6. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog, because if you hadn't I may not have found your wonderfully fantastic art! I'm in complete awe over your paintings. I love the colors, the subjects, and most of all the doodling that do over it. So beautiful!!

Happy Valentines Day!!
These are little Valentines Mice made out of little white stones. I stuck felt hearts on them and then embelished them with bows and eyes. This is a fun Valentines Day craft for my daughter's second grade class!

India

Meet India, she is such a treasure! I made from a tea cup I brought back from India last year. She sits 6 1/2 inches tall. The base she sits on is a beautiful square plate I found in Crate & Barrel that matched the tea cup perfectly. India has been embellished with fabrics I also brought back with me. Her hair is a combination of wool and acrylic fibers and she is jeweled with brass accents. India has henna patterns on the souls of her feet and around the tops of her arms and sits in this peaceful position as she meditates. She's waiting to sit in your home and bring you peace.

Art Doll Mable

Art Doll Mable
Meet Mable, she's trying her best to keep her skin glowing. She believes in nourishing her body from the inside out but once a week a good facial mask and cucumbers on her eyes make all the difference in the world. She stand 8 inches tall and would love to sit on the side of your tub or on your dresser. She could spend hours in the bathroom! * Mable is an original one of a kind decorative Art Doll and not meant to be played with as a toy.
