one more down

Ahhh, the joy of finishing another project.  I love when something actually turns out right. I'm quite pleased with the newest member.  She's ready in time for the Big & little show.  I'm going to look at the gallery space on Friday.  Next on the table in the jewelry piece for the show.  I got it started today, but ran out of steam.  Well, next weekend is another day.

publish or perish

The new issue of Art Doll Quarterly came in the mail yesterday.  They did a really nice job with photographing my doll - "grounded."  They shot her nicely, and did a full page of close-ups.  It was nice to see.  You need a 'feel good' kind of day periodically.
Here's one of the pictures Marie shot. She lost her head feather on the way home.  I'll have to fix her.  One more thing on my messy studio desk.

been away

Well, it's been too long since I last posted, and with no better excuse than just plain being busy.  Gotta get rid of this day job thing.  But then I suppose I'd also have to get rid of eating and other unimportant bills.
Fabulously enough I have gotten some time for art the past couple of weeks, including a good start (and almost a finish) on my figurative sculpture for the BIG & little show here in San Diego.
And, even more fabulously, Marie Segal came by on Friday with her magic camera and took some great photos.  She's still working on them, but here's one of a necklace I posted a couple of months ago that shows just how much better she is at this than I am.
Thanks, Marie!
Thanks, too, to Cassy for her vote of confidence.
