New and Old

I'm so into birds and nature right now.  Especially since it's been selling at Ten Women.  It's what the audience is buying so I have to accommodate.  This is a 6x6 canvas original, mixed media with 3 diemnsional elements of  nature.  Some pieces are hard to let go of and this is one of them.

 
This is Jilly...so named by my husband and his granddaughter Jillian.  

 
  
Jilly's about 5" tall and is made from polymer clay, fiber, ribbon trim  and lace.  Since taking an online class with Misty Mawn on self portraits my faces have changed.  I also love art dolls and will probably always create one or two intermingled among my repertoire of art.  These dolls I learned from Nancye Williams 
whom I admire and who is going thru a challenging time right now.  I keep her close in my prayers.
I'm always reaching and creating anew...that's just who I am.
