1  Sister Love My first impressionistic painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by craftewoman on: January 27, 2017 09:27:41 PM
Last night the women in my church group got together to try something new. A teacher came and taught them how to paint a tree with cherry blossoms. This project would have been too easy foe, and in the spirit of stretching and getting out of our comfort zones, I thought I'd try something new, for myself.
 I've never painted in the impressionistic style. My art teachers have always told me that I work too tightly, and that I need to loosen up. This project made me feel anxious. I had to walk away from it 3 times to calm my heart.
 Today, when I picked it up again, I felt anxious again. The colors I'd mixed last night were different. The lighting was different. But, I kept at it. I put it down twice and walked away from it, and finally finished after picking up the kids from school.
 The models are my two daughters, 21 months apart, they've been raised like twins. They share everything, and can't imagine being apart for any length of time. I wanted to capture their love for one another, and didn't care too much about the likeness, since they are growing up so fast. But, I managed to get their likenesses as well.  Something I didn't think was possible when working so loosely.

2  Uncle Sam doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by craftewoman on: July 17, 2016 06:21:17 PM
I took a break from doll making for about a year or two. Jumping back in with this fella.


 I still hate making shoes, but I'm going to work on that this Fall while the kids are in school. I also am looking at trying some different patterns for the doll. This one is of my own making. But, I am intrigued by ball jointed dolls. In my Instagram I've discovered some really talented doll makers and I'm hoping to learn from them.

I laid down my painting and drawing for many years. I've been busy raising children. Now that they've gone back to school I have more time to indulge.
Just some things I've done in the last 3 weeks:
Watercolor:

5  Nananananana Batman! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by craftewoman on: May 26, 2014 12:03:16 AM
I love a challenge, and this doll gave plenty to figure out for the first time. The Batman costume is removable. The back is made with a knit fabric and has snaps. Even so, after figuring out most things, I am still not satisfied with my shoe making. Something to work on, I guess.






And one more, as the wealthy playboy, Bruce Wayne.

10  Divya a Christmas Elf from India in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by craftewoman on: December 02, 2013 11:00:29 AM
I've had so much fun making dolls with all different skin hues. Making elves from around the world has given me an opportunity to expand my creativity and learn some new techniques.

This is Divya, my Indian elf. She wears a traditional Punjabi and facial jewelry including a bindi (forehead jewel) which represents the third eye.
