Well ~ it will be a new month in a few hours. Durning the power outage here in Eastern PA (due to the hurricane named Irene) I pulled out some paper and finally got back to sketching. Seeing the work of a lovely lady on Etsy: Nathalie Ortega and the lovely stories she tells with her pictures - made me ever more remise about my works. I love making dolls - and, truth be told, they are what sells on my Etsy - but I do get so quickly tired of working in the same media - I like telling different tales and trying different things... I'm not sure how some artists work in only one media and on one subject.
On the other hand - I bet they get reeeally good - I can not claim that. I can say I am skilled - but a master? Probably never. I don't think that is a goal. I want to get better - but the true enjoyment for me is in the making. Even now after almost 50 dolls made - I've only kept one - though I've loved everyone of them ~ I would much rather share.
I'm just grateful there are people out there that want to take some of my works home! What more can an artist such as my self ask for? I adore the idea of my dolls being all over the world! And they are!
But I think I need a new big project! It has been some time since I had a show - those really get me moving - I'm sure I've been more and more indulgent since college - I must admit - I miss homework and projects and dead-lines ~ self-motived? sure... but I'd be more so knowing someone or place is waiting.
Ah well~ back to work! Etsy is down to three items! *laughs* I shall focus on that 'assignment!' ... for now.
