I'm having a hard time downloading pictures on my blog....lovely google. NOT. Same way I have for a long time...now not working. I might have to completely redo this blog. I think it's about time anyway.... I can still put music on here, but not my artwork. I have hung more at www.thebarncastlerock.com. I sold most of my pieces. The wall was looking a bit bare...I love that little town and all the unique shops. The Barn...is one of my favorite places to go decompress. So it made sense to start putting my artwork there....It's SooooO me. You can also friend me on facecrack, link is on the right. Or "google me" to see the other places I like to hang out with other artists. Thank you again for all the support. It's been crazy good lately. Very grateful..... I haven't been listing online lately. And I've gotten a few complains. I'm sorry about this. I seem to be having a hard time keeping up with the demand...lol. I've been showing pictures...then I get messages on wanting to purchase. And then we agree on a price and I send them a link from paypal to purchase. I can't even get them on Etsy...lol. Or ebay.... but I'm trying....

I've done many childrens' rooms when I was younger, for extra money. Every type of character you can imagine. I don't have very many pictures of the work I've done. All anyone sees on my page now is pictures of women's faces and such. But I can do just about anything....and probably should start showing that. The last few years I've just been experimenting with different processes more than the subject matter. This one customer insisted on Dr. Suess. She had planned exactly what she wanted on each wall of her nursery. She didn't know if she was having a boy or a girl. They were keeping that a surprise. I had no idea what I was doing until I got over there with my "tool box" of paints to do the job....LOl...this was about 15 years ago.
NO INFRINGEMENT INTENDED....ALL CREDIT GOES TO DR. SUESS

This is what she originally looked like. Before the repaint.
I had so much fun repainting this one.....
And of course I had to dress her up....
She has so much detail that I couldn't capture.
I painted her black first, then did the color over...
and added crackle gel so you could see the black underneath the paint.
I wanted her to look like a pretty old mannequin....with distress and a worn look.
So there are chips in the paint here and there...
The bottom of the head I collaged with black and white checkered paper, polka dots and snow glitter. Then I sealed with a heavy duty spray varnish with UV protection. I've listed her on Etsy.
Thank you for looking at my little musings.....
