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
