Oh, I've been so lucky, lately. Within a weeks time, I have acquired 3 new pieces of artwork and I love them all!!
My sweet friend, Barbara, surprised me with a box in the mail the other day. My hands were all aflutter as I opened it, since I couldn't imagine what she would be sending me. It turned out to be one of her "Sassy Crows."
Now, how cute is that? All hand stitched with the utmost attention to details. I love the stripped feet and the polka-dot eyelid...and look at the real black feathers on the back.
The second addition to my art collection is an assemblage made by Karen Leigh.
After chatting online for quite some time now, we actually got to meet each other in person at Random Arts in Saluda, NC. I fell in love with this piece before I even knew it was hers; so I guess I was meant to have it. Karen was gracious enough to work out a deal with me and now it's hanging on my studio wall.
I spent a bit of time at Random Arts and felt very welcomed by the owner, Jane.
I got this mermaid doll called "Collecting Memories." She writes a little personal story about each doll she makes. Her etsy shop is here if you want to check out more of her work.
So, now I have shared with you my wonderful new pieces of artwork. I couldn't be more thrilled with them all : )
It's a very good feeling to know people out there "get" your artwork. For your art to be inspirational to others can be what keeps you creating day after day. A while ago I was contacted by author Tracy Holczer about my birds. She told me she found inspiration in them while writing her newest novel. Of course I felt humbled and very touched that she responded to them in this way.
Check out her website HERE. She did a great job incorporating some of my birds into the design.
I feel so much like they are part of the book because they lived in my mind while I wrote it :)
I guess that about wraps it up. This upcoming week can't possibly be as exciting as the last has been, but sometimes that's a good thing.
