...I think I should take them outside more~ I miss the sun in this dark little apartment~

Finished her~ AND added a bit of one of those wooly-cuffs to her coat... used two of my favorite bits of fabric I've collected over the years~ as well as some of the new faux fur that I just can't get enough of... Her photos don't do her justice - though I say it myself... Oh~ also first time sculpting a tongue - and painting two different colored eyes... I may have gone a little overboard on the whimsy with her~ but I think I'm allowed ;D

(Ever more) Autumn Dolls~

Been having a good time making little companion creatures~
Now I'm thinking I'll finish up one more 'monster' and then make some little fairy/jackalope/winged gals~ as I so enjoy creating.. maybe I'll finally get around to making one with a nice cuff of white fur/wool that I so love to draw:
And I keep thinking I should really be making some honest to goodness 'art-dolls'~ you know the kind that people actually have in galleries and art shows... but I just don't think I will~ I can think about them... sketch ideas out - but what would I do with one if I actually finished one? I don't want to create things that require extra attention - I want to make creatures that fit in on a bookshelf or tucked in a living room by a lamp. A little companion - a friendly face - something to make someone smile - not a piece of work that requires the new owner to worry. I want to make art that people live with... not showcase. Back to work I GOoooo~
