I packed a picnic in a basket for her.
I thought this photo looks like a school picture!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates tomorrow!
I received an amazing surprise in the mail- this absolutely beautiful book!
And I am beyond thrilled to be included in it!
I get a certain number of email requests to participate in projects and I never know if it will be fantastic or a big zero. I usually decide to do them based on a whim- does the email sound friendly, knowledgeable and respectful of my time and artwork? Then I will probably say yes. Mostly, I spend some hours answering questions and collecting photographs, send them off, then never hear or see anything again. But, THIS BOOK! Awesome! I am honored to be part of this group of artists-
I’ve taken a few pics of some of my favorite pages-
This fellow, so classic and perfect inspiration for one of my fellows.
The flower beards!
Each artist gets a little biography, answers a few questions and then has several pages of photographs/illustrations. The author of the book is identified as Sarah, Barber of Paris. She is apparently one of the few professional women barbers in France. It is a big, coffee table type book and so much fun to page through. It is going to give me loads of ideas for future men with beards.
A well-fed mushroom hunter-
He is dressed and ready for an afternoon in the forest. He has his backpack/collecting bag on his back.
What is in his bag? So far it has been a good day-
He is made of a reclaimed wool sweater and as is common with many of the knits, he ended up being quite a chubby fellow once he was stuffed and finished. I love the variety of shapes and sizes that I get by using a range of fabrics.
I’ve been imagining this fellow for a long while so when I got back to the foxes, he was the first that I wanted to finish up.
He had to wear the lumberjack classic red and black buffalo plaid, of course!
And there is his axe, stored in his backpack.
All his clothing and accessories are removable. He has his hatchet, a pear, and a handkerchief, stowed in the backpack.
A new merman with skeletons. This month has been a lot of men with skeleton tattoos!
I got a new IPhone last weekend and am blown away by the amazing camera. I took photos with the phone and also with my Canon EOS Rebel and the phone pics were so much better. So, some of these photos were taken with the new phone and some with my SLR.
And here is the back side of his hair-
btw- this is #100 doll of 2017!
