All right, all right....got it back- apparently when I updated my settings to "new editor" it took away my icon to add photos or at least put the icon somewhere else...holy cow... could life get any more difficult? We need a new car, looks like hubby needs a new job in this state that is losing jobs by the minute- meaning we no longer have health insurance so of course my kid gets tonsilits....please, God, don't take away my ability to post pictures. Really it could be the proverbial straw.

I'm still not warming up to MS.Lady here. I think its because all the "serious" peices I have done until now have been so 'not about clothing' that they have been dressed in not much more than rags. So to put something on her that looks like a cocktail dress.... not feeling right....but I am working from an inspiration picture. A piece of contemporary art with all these colors.



Wondering what's in the "captured" spaces? Enamel paint? Well of a sort...(see if you can guess) and I have no idea how it will hold up over time....(that's a hint....)



Can you see the addition of more keys? I like that and so that will stay. Let me know what you think. If ever I have needed or wanted in put it is on this one.

  3. I love the colors you have chosen! I keep poking the pictures bigger to try to figure out what you used- I want to see it in real life! Ugh, I hope your hubby finds a new job soon- our work has been really slow and it makes me nervous as heck! I don't have a lot of input either- I like the direction it is going in- love the soft feeling she has ♥

  4. Aww, you guys are too nice! Actually I had a breakthrough, maybe. Think butterflies flying around her head and vines for her hair- you know Ihave to do something weird to her!

  5. I like the birdcage idea too! I think she is really showing you moving in a different, more "mature?" path from your other work. You never told us what the secret material was. I'm not good with input, but I know what is visually appealing, and that is her. I know you probably plan to put eyes on her, but I'm kinda thinking the blank eyes really say something about being blind to "new" things in terms of your art growing. Or maybe I just need a glass of wine.

  6. Melanie- You are so deep. I like the eyes blank also and am always torn- should I show them closed? But then I think- aww, folks want to see them open. Maybe I am having trouble with her because she's too mature! By the way- the "secret" material is readily available to all- artist or not....

  7. Chris - That is what a masters degree in literature and education and no job will do for you! I must project myself onto others because I have no one to analyze with me! I still like the blank eyes. With the bird cage hat, she will be downright freaky!
