Winter Fair this past weekend was a very nice and sold a few items. I also got to meet the person who purchased my brick doll from the breast cancer auction.  I had mentioned that to my hubby last week that I had no idea who bought the brick, so that was a bit exciting!!  Winter Fair is juried fine art show and I am making plans to apply for a spot next year. This year I showed with a group of fellow doll makers as a guild on the upper level of the convention center and the juried artists were all on the first level. Several guilds are allowed in on the upper level as long as you demo your craft for the public.
Jewel was created from a wooden stake used at a construction site and the string was still on it when I scavanged it somewhere. I originally left the white frame around the face plain white, but that kept bothering me, so I added some design marks to it and now I'm somewhat satisfied with the results.

Queen I

Another paint brush art doll. This one is titled "Queen I". I've been experimenting with pewter like faces and just looking at her now, I should have done her crown in the same material.

Bewitching Angel

I'm still a little MIA with blogging, but I have been plugging away in the studio. Yes, I know that Halloween has already passed, but my spooky little face creations keep reappearing.
Winter Fair is coming up next weekend and our figurative art group has been preparing for it, so hopefully we will have a successful show/sale. My last show for the year will be at Winter Market on the Dec. 4 in Indianapolis, IN. That show is held at the Eiteljorg Museum and I just love the feel and atmosphere of that place! Their permanent exhibit is awesome!!

Paint Brush Art Doll - Pebo

The hubby had a bag full of paint brushes left over from a painting project done a few months ago and of course I had to keep them when they were offered to me.
I tripped over the bag over the weekend and decided it was time to put those brushes to work. My favorite part in creating this doll was working with the paper ruffles. She measures about 13.25" tall.
