a series of painted stones.
My friend Joanna asked me to participate in her high school's Sustainable Art Show and I thought I would make those as they make great little gifts for a loved one. Lucky stones. They each have a word at the front or back, word to associate to the giver or given... Attributes to ask for or to celebrate in oneself... you decide!

the idea of "doll" here uses the idea (drawing), rather than the shape, of the wood. It would be the drawing itself giving it Life. It is all, then, just a play on words and idea... but an ancient one! I am sure that in ancient (ancient ancient ...) time, a drawing was considered something powerful that could give life, like the paintings of Lascaux.
that is why she is naked. I am going to dress her up!
I think that all the shamanic dolls found in archeological site were for the most part clothed initially. People forget that fabric does not last as long as wood metal or stone... we get only a partial picture of what the doll really looked like. When I see them in museums, I always dressed them up in my mind!
so, go ahead, dress my doll in your mind to!...and tell me what you think she would look like!!!

these items will be pilled until I have the time to look after my Etsy page. I will then post everything and those will be for sale. I have vowed to try harder to create and produce more in spite of having little time.
Kicking my own butt!

I have a brand spanking new computer and will be back in business soon.
Though... The price for internet service these days is pretty horrifying but I will find something.
(...any advice from my Canadian friends would be very warmly welcome!!!)
My goal is to get back into Art, organise my Etsy page to sell my art at affordable reasonable prices and slowly go back to a more artsy live! I miss it!
Life has it's ups and downs... that's ok. I always loved a roller coaster ride!
I'm on that path! ...Thank you to all my old blog friends, here, there, on Flickr, on Facebook... for being there all this time! You rock!

well, erh...I am an aikidoka now.
I have found my true calling in that...so, Art has gone on the back burner... Only temporarly! Only because of the lack of time...but, when ever I have a little bit of time, miraculously, the creative juices are still there! And so here is a Tea-Bag-Print intrepretation I did recently that wanted to be an owl smoking a cigar. Fun! ...That is what Art is about!
Yes. All the geniuses had Fun at the centre of their Art (Picasso, Klee, van Gogh, Miro...).
And actually, even martial artists. I call it Joyful Practise... a very important ingredient of learning, talent, art... ultimately enlightment even.
: Do what you do in joy, and the whole universe will be on your side!

Luckily, I found a way to access it at last using a different browser. It was that easy. Garh!
Here is an update photo on the 2nd dolls!
This doll is on it's way to Julie's studio to receive their adornments in paint and materials... exciting!!!
A second one, the brown one, waits for a few implements to go the same route! I am so glad I can share things here again... there will be more posts!
