John Lennon Portrait



I want to thank everyone for such amazing encouragement with my Portraits!! Literally all I did yesterday was work on John Lennon and I finished him at about 11:00 last night. I would love to have a collection of these for the art festival & of course this had to be a last minute thought so I certainly have my work cut out for me. They are so much fun to create and it's amazing how much I can think about things while I'm doodling. Have an artsy day everyone!!
Both the original and Prints are available now in my Etsy Shop!

  12. Amazing! The detail blows me away. I must try one of these when I have a few hours (lol) I am sure it takes quite a while to create one as beautiful as yours.

  13. I find it interesting that you can doodle around the noses and they still look charming. I tried it once and it looked like a cartoon. LOL. Great job on Lennon.

  15. Ooops ! I forgot to mention that drawing and the act of getting lost in a drawing happens to me all the time. It really allows you to think things through...it's a peaceful meditative sort of pass time that does us artsy types more good than we probably even realize at the time!

    Today's Watercolour Wednesday, and I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do!!!!!! I'm still in bed right now! heheee....waiting for my hubby to treat me to a STARBUCKS coffee. That otta' get my creative wheels in geer!

    ciao again!

  18. that is a great idea to have a grouping like that for your show. This is really a great piece also, I really like the hair, and just now I had to go look again at the glasses and they eyes. It really feels good to look at this piece.

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.
