Hopefully this blog will inspire you to have confidence in your creative abilities and give you courage to learn and try new things. Try something NEW. It could be just what you need to make you a better artist, or a better person. My latest obsession is Amigurumi Crochet, and my favorite subjects right now are Hollywood Icons, Famous People and Characters.

Some sketchy loose watercolor art, and more scarves!

ACEO Witchy Poo and Bat, for Halloween challenge on EBAY Facebook group.

8x10 Loose Watercolor, pen and ink, for DPW challenge this week.

I am working on taking pictures for the "Wearable Art" section of my Etsy Store, but it takes so much time! It's more fun to make them than it is to list them online. I just got the mannequin and the white cardboard backing so I will try to take a few to show you what I have done this week.
Turquoise Blues and Purple Skarfette and Beret

This is the one I started last week, and the mannequin (I should give her a name!) is wearing my blonde wig. This was taken before I got the white presentation foamcore. Below she is set up with lots of lights, which creates shadows . . . 

I don't know how to do the lighting so I don't get shadows, but you can see the shoulder scarf and Beret pretty good. She has this neutral color skin which I did not like at first, but now I do, because she looks good as a blonde or a brunette.

Or without her wigs wearing a cloche and neck warmer.

    1. Thanks, Giggles. I have to keep doing at least one or two paintings a week, since I have a tendency to become obsessed with crochet right now.
