Anyways all has been good this January so far- a bit on the slow side but a good catch up time for me to experiment with new dolls. I am also sending work in to possibly get into "Stuffed" Magazine and "Doll Art" Magazine. Wish me luck!
OH AND BEFORE I FORGET I must mention that a scam artist has been on the lose in Etsy. They tried to buy one of my dolls and then send me a check made out for much more money then what the doll was worth and then they wanted me to send them the doll and excess cash. If this is happening to you- beware IT IS A TRAP!!! I was fortunate enough to have realized it was a trap before any transactions took place but please be careful about who you deal with and it is a good idea to accept PayPal only.
Besides all of this however, I am trying a new art form to go along with my art dolls; this art form is prints made from some of my original paintings. This is such a good idea that I got from the Etsy Shop "A Little Fox. " Art dolls are somewhat expensive because they take a lot of time, energy, and materials to make. So for a lot of doll artists to sustain themselves they make paintings in the same style as their dolls and then make prints to sale for a lot less then an art doll or painting. Here are some of my prints so far:
The Queen had a great candy palace with her lollipop kitten, and together they lived a colorful life...
"The Wishing Fairy"
The fairy took her heart way up into the sky and made a wish...
I have never in my life considered myself a painter, but I have to say that I really love this art form. It's very freeing to take your pen and paper and paint and just start out of your mind. There is no prep work for me, it's all just very simple and fun. It's fun.
Well that is all for tonight. I am going to treat myself and go into my studio and make more paintings. It's so fun and I could quite possibly get carried away- which is ok for me.
