live, love, care, speak

My latest painting - "live, love, care, speak"
not sure about the words - placement not value, but what is done is done!
Really happy with the face on the left - think she may appear again!

love you

Next doll made -"love you " is a cloth and clay original with a little glass tile holding my favorite accessory....a little owl! I hand dyed the muslin - was for skin tone but ended up too peachy but looks great as clothing luckily! She has her head tilted down - which is a hard angle to capture in a photo. I hope you like her.

She dreamed....

I have been busy with some new dolls - here is the first one
"she dreamed"....... She is a cloth and clay original with hand patterned silk and muslin clothes and a little coloured glass tile I made up with the words she dreamed embedded in it. I love her softness of colour ... a nice change for me.! hope you enjoy her too.

This is my latest doll Lou.
She might look like the cat that caught the bird,
but she knows the secret ...
that to have a friend, you must first be one.
