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!

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