yesterday i posted some work in progress shots of cora, the transparent woman & connor, the strongman-the stars of my piece " the strongest muscle" which will be part of the group show "be still my anatomical heart" at mariposa gallery in albuquerque.
well, cora & connor are finished and the fantastical sideshow they are a part of will depart new orleans for new mexico this afternoon!
i was very pleased with how it turned out, and i have so many more ideas for boxes and other larger pieces now. my next big piece will be for the ART DOLLS ONLY first quarter challenge: STEAMPUNK.
funny, how i started out working small, because, well, that's what i'm comfortable with thanks to all those years beading. but now i am making larger and larger pieces! i am enjoying working larger because i can get more detail into each piece. which means more time on each one. but it also means they are more fun to make!
i have also found a way to apply the same painting technique i use on canvas and wood to the dolls and i am much happier with it than i was even with the crackle and aged look i was giving them.
well, i guess i better get my lovebirds packed up and ready to roll...
