 Embossed "Our Lady de Guadalupe" paper ornament

Look what I finally fnished! I named him "Happy" just because I'm so happy to have finished him.
I decided to go with doll legs and a cone cap.

Gentle Woman

Our blessed mother has been on my mind since celebrating The Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary last week.

Gentle Woman is one of many beautiful titles given to the Virgin Mary.

Domino #10

I've been fiddling around with my domino art dolls. Always trying to find new levels to take it to. Size wise I like to work on a small scale because my studio is small and my time is very limited lately.

W.I.P. for Winter Market Show

"Angel Gabriel"
Trying to get last minute work done for my last show of the year!! Yeah!!! I'm tired, but motivated with new ideas to work on.
Angel Gabriel was created with only the right wing, because I really liked the way he looked. Well, there was only one problem. He was heavy on one side, so he hung off balance. I didn't have much choice but to add that other wing to make him upright. I was happy with the end results, but still pouting a little about not having only one wing!

Oh My!! What a pose! I haven't put a hook on the back for hanging yet, so I had to a find a position that would keep him upright while the glue on his hat sets. The paper on the front side is a piece cut out from one of my collagraph prints.

Cork board display in my studio, where all my little creations hang for my viewing pleasure or critique!
