Sunday Sketches












Welcome to Sunday Sketches hosted by Sophia at Blue Chair Diary. For more Sunday Sketches check out Sophia's blog!

The top photo here is an example I created of my dogs "Paisley & Stella" for my students. We are working on Pet Collages this month and I'm so proud of their progress with this project. These next few photos are of my students hard at work all spread out on my dining room table last Friday afternoon.

  3. Good morning, what a lot of wonderful art work to see and so great to see the photos and then your work, it just gives me goosebumps looking at it, and then looking again, one feels a burst within and that is such a good feeling.

    Aren't those kids ding a wonderful job? They must just love it. I know they do because a young woman stopped by to see me yesterday who was one of my first students, and we talked about those days of her coming to do art work.
    She now has 3 children and is married and very busy with family and job. It really is a rewarding thing to work with kids. Years to come they will remember you and the fun of art.

    This brightened my day more than you can imagine.

  5. How much fun this must be, for you and your students! I can "feel" the enthusiasm and excitement from the children, within the photos. Their artwork is beautiful, and I know you're so proud of each one of them! I would be, too! I'm happy these girls are having a great experience creating art with you ~~ what a great thing for you to share with them! Happy Creating, Rebecca! xoxo

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!

Art Doll Prints

Available Now!!!

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.
