I had done 2 paintings for the GPP February challenge but missed the deadline due to Lucy's extended visit:
I worked on this painting while Lucy was here. In person this looks more magenta but photographed with a lot more blue. The blue is mostly Neocolor II crayons.
I will post a photo of the journal I made with Lucy and post some of the new stuff I have been working on tomorrow.
As you may remember, I have damaged the upper joint in my thumb which makes it hard to make dolls. I had thought that perhaps it was time to find something else to focus on creatively. However, recently I have realized that I really miss making dolls. I spent so much time learning and growing as a doll artist that it seems such a shame to turn my back on it. I will have to be careful of my thumb and try to come up with ways to protect it, but I think that dollmaking is going to be a permanent part of my creative life even if it takes a year or more to make one doll. I see ideas for dolls everywhere - I even dream of making them. I love painting too so perhaps I will find a way to bring them both together. Happy Giraffe! Belinda
Belinda - while I was visiting here for Crusade No. 39 I came across this post! I added a link to it for C37. Love seeing your XO work, regardless of the timing.
I'm sorry about your thumb and that you have had to scale back on doll making. Think of it as a time to gather ideas. By the time you get back to it you will be bursting with inspiration!
