I've been laying low for a little while in regards to blogging and creating art and it's due to family commitments and work. However, I do try to sneak in a project or two. Abuelita Grace is a commissioned piece I did for a fellow New Mexican. She saw my work on Etsy and really liked what I created, so she contacted me. I use to do commissions many, many years ago and I grew very tired of the deadlines. I haven't really done any since then. What was different with this commission is that Christina, the client, let me work at my own pace. Thank you Christina!!!!
I really enjoyed working on this piece with all the wonderful stuff she sent belonging to her beloved grandmother. Abuelita Grace has crochet needles for arms, hand beaded earring for the head, vintage buttons, porcelain doll legs, and a beautiful lace hanky. The doll looks better in person and I hope Christina will enjoy her as much as I did in creating her!
