Pixie dust

This one is definitely trying its luck at the local art show. And begging for a pro shot to keep on my computer.

I was just going to pick colors. Wall, fabric, bed posts, and sky colors that coordinate and work with the look I planned was all I was going to do.
Then my hands took over. Does this happen to you?
I forced myself to leave the table before I designed her quilt pattern. (Although the colors have been chosen.)

new project, art show

So I know I am practically talking to myself, so this is a great opportunity to vent and plan and hopefully create.

I have a new assignment at work, which was supposedly ending next Friday, and now no one knows when the permanent employee is returning.  This was fine because then I could take a day off or take a half day assignment to focus on next weeks art show in town.  I am super excited about the project I want to bring in as well as my mermaid.  This is a juried show so I am not guaranteed a spot.  But the sketch is done and I have great hopes for this one.
I finished another Cinderella and I still think it is lacking.  It isn't a hot mess so at least that is an improvement.
This means I'm hoping Wendy isn't hiding the pixie dust from me when I create her escape in paper.

What girl do you know who flies?

Got a new sketch book. No more printer paper that is too small. And to celebrate I went to my pinterest board o' ideas for my next project.

Finished with Cinderella. Which means I have paper scraps everywhere, paint on my fingers and glitter on the floor. Ahh success! Just needs a signature. Will post the professional shot later. Until then... Falderal and fiddle dee dee...

No pictures today.  Working on a new Cinderella.  Asked mom for opinion.  Since she makes beautiful figurines I listen when she says the legs aren't long enough.  Anything is better than the hot mess of my Cinderella that exists now.
