"Frida Kahlo" Stage 2




I have added some color and a few patterns are beginning to form. I too like the black and white as it was and may do my next one just black and white. I just can't seem to help myself here with the colors and details. It just seems unfinished until I go to town on my pieces. I know I go overboard most of the time but I guess that's what makes it mine. I look at artists that can create the most simple and beautiful images and sometimes I really wish I could do that every now and then. If I were to put it on my wall as a black and white piece it would at least have to have zentangles inside the white areas or it would bother me. I'm just a crazy woman who's all about detail(O:

Thank you so much for all the feedback on my Stage 1 post!!!! My blog friends are the BEST!!!

  5. I sometimes am afraid to do too little (it needs something) or do much (it's too busy), but eventually I just give in to what feels right. Your art is wonderful, your colors are gorgeous. Happy days, Joanie

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
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.
