Now is the time to review and plan for a new year. I have worked steadily and passionately over the past 10 years to make art dolls. I've tried everything I could think of and now have all kinds of mixed media tricks up my sleeve. I will finally have to admit that I am running out of steam on the production side of the doll biz, and short on great ideas. Worse than that, I've missed opportunities to try other media and just play around at art
In 2019 I plan to explore encaustic painting, new fiber ideas and and abstract painting, while continuing to create a few art dolls. This blog will be about learning new things and reminding myself about things I already know. Join me each week to see what I am creating now!
I ended 2018 making these figures. Each is about 27" tall and built on a paper mache cone-shaped form, with polymer clay faces.
Five more cone bodies are ready for the next step.
Next week I will begin the "Uncommon Quilter" 52-week challenge.
