Art Doll Lena

Another doll in the works. The dress is of cheese cloth material and the arms are a combination wire and ceramic.

ClayWork

I have been staining my clay pieces this morning and wanted to share some of the fruits of my labor!

Antique Show

Me and my daughter spent the day at the Burlington Antique Show that happens Spring - Fall. The were lots of goodies to look at. It was well attended and the weather was beautiful.

New Art Doll

A new art doll completed this past week. The legs are part of a compass and have been wired to hang as legs for a while. They were waiting for the right body. 

 

Work Happening in my studio

I have been spending a little more time in my studio monoprinting. Trying out new stencils and combination of print stencils and colors.

Black and White Monoprint

Had some down time to myself and I spent it in the studio printing monoprints. I'm little more methodical about my placement of color and layerings. Before I use to let things evolve by chance.

I've had a bit of a creative boost since my return from our vacation out west. This art doll is made from wire mesh, leather, rusted nails, game pieces, metal, and fibers.

Our second day on the train, I snapped this shot first entering New Mexico.

New Mexico Exploration

In addition to visiting family in New Mexico, one of my goals was to visit the studio of Artist Bill Skrips in Cerrillos, New Mexico. Along the way to Bill's studio we came across an origami garden. All the large sculptural pieces were made out of steel. My young one loves origami, so this stop was a necessity!
