Blue eyes and white hair. And more skeletons.
It is a challenge to think of names for all the ladies! Tattooed lady #4 sounds pretty boring.
I gave her big fancy hair,
and a pretty flat chest because we love all kinds of bodies, right?!
I like this toile. It is the perfect scale for these ladies.
It’s been a week since I got back from Northampton and I am working on dolls but also doing things that I’d postponed until after the show. And Fall chores, mostly garden related. So, my time in the studio is less than usual but I will be back to full steam soon.
Here is the first piece I’ve finished-
She has Christmas skeleton tattoos.
A side view so you can see her curves.
And a little dark brown glass, 3-hole button on her belt.
Here she is- last one finished before I headed out. More skeleton tattoos!
See you next week!
Skeleton Tattoos for October!
The truck is rented and packed up and we are off to Northampton later today. I have one more doll to post tomorrow and then I will see you next week!
Even his arms have awesome tattoos. I love this fabric! He has a Poseidon button too.
Merman and me :-)
I am busy, busy, busy getting ready for the show. I love having a deadline- it is very inspiring!
I had a bit of excitement here- on Saturday afternoon, after I did my last blog post, my aged (2015 MacBook) and beloved computer bit the dust in a rather exciting fashion involving a pixelated screen, a scritching noise that was getting louder, the computer getting very hot, very quickly. I pulled out the charging cable, turned off the computer, but that was the end of that. So sad, I really liked that machine! Anyway, I was off to buy a new computer first thing yesterday. Thank goodness I was mostly all backed up! And now, here I am, typing on my new friend.
This fellow is larger than my typical merman- I was playing with the pattern and not thinking about how changing his tail would affect the size. Anyway, I think he will look amazing in my booth this weekend.
I found these perfect buttons online: I had to buy some.
He has to be a farmer because who else would have all the vegetable tattoos?!
And his other side-
He has an antique one-hole button on his belt.
And his portrait in front of my favorite wall which won’t be around much longer because that house is being renovated.
She is the last lady for now, as I am stocking up for my show.
Here are all the closer-ups-
And the back view-
