In the Studio - Updates

My studio post comes a day early this week so I can free some time up tomorrow for needle felting and Woolygeeks.

Last week I shared the very first phase of a new piece I was working on. Over the weekend I attacked it again and here are the results:

I like what happened in the layering and free-flowing shape and color. I don't feel that it is complete yet, but I will hold off for a few more days while it marinates in my mind. More layering and composition tweaks are in order.

I also had a chance to work on some new illustrations. They began as simple doodles with a collage element (their bodies are construction paper "feathers" donated by The Baklava Queen from a project that didn't come to fruition for Local Roots around Thanksgiving – thank you!).

Soon, they developed personalities and fell neatly into a little mythological set of feminine triads. First, the Graces (or Charities) ...

And then, the Morrigan...

Not sure where this flow next, but I'm excited about the possibilities!

Nice! Glad you could turn those into something really intriguing!

I especially love the doodles! They look like Dr. Suess illustrations meet Manolo Blahnik fashion sketches...LOVE!

P.S) I tagged you here!
