Something strange, for me.... more of an idea than anything else. do you think it came through?

Either way, I'm headed out of town first thing in the morning! I will be back next week, most likely with many beautiful figure sketches and seascapes. Love to you all!

and this one might be done....

.... but of course I'm not sure, and I have no idea what to call her anyways. I'll most likely end up with "The Artist's Cousin at Dusk" or something :)

And this is why I love having a garden. Painting what comes from your own garden.... it's just magic.

I've been able to put hair up in a braid for so long, it seems like I would just know how to paint it- definitely not the case!

Sorry I disappeared for so long! I did Greensboro Summer Solstice again on Saturday, and had a wonderful time. I'm now the proud owner of a tophat and everything. And I got many, many pictures of many beautiful people, and I'll be doing dailies of them for a while to come :)

Fallen Hollyhock

So.... I had these hollyhocks suddenly appear in my yard last fall. I had no idea what they were at the time, but thought I might have put out some seeds and forgotten about them. Well this spring they started getting taller.... and taller.... and taller.... and eventually started blooming. Lovely black hollyhocks.

Once a bloom is spent it falls off, and I found this one sitting quietly in a leaf, almost like the plant was offering it to me.

Bird Goddess

Something new that I'm really excited about! I took sculpey and carved into it, and then baked it, and then added paints and such to brings out the lines and texture..... she is based on a carved bird goddess figure, perhaps a fertility thing, from around 4500 BCE.
