There have been some changes since then - narrowed the focus of my art, downsized my belongings significantly and oh yeah, lost my job.
I have spent the last month doing the aforementioned downsizing, rearranging the studio, making plans and reading. Lots and lots of reading. Novels, art technique books, doll books - you name it, I have read it. And here is the wisdom I have accumulated from all this reading - it's time to get off my ass. I need to actually make something instead of just envisioning. Real, honest to god work - not just pipe dreams.
Here are some pictures of the kinds of stuff I am capable of:
My first beaded doll
Mixed Media - love using book pages!!
Wet felting on an ostrich egg
Body made from vintage quilt fragment
Crazy girl on tea tin body - and more book pages!
Needle and wet felted head - colored with chalk and makeup
The second beaded doll - gotta love beads!
So now you see that I actually can do something, provided I can lever myself up out of my chair and point myself into the studio.
A good friend of mine consults a super talented psychic who says that March is going to be a time of great change and adventure for me.
I'm ready and waiting. It can't come soon enough!
