Fairy Postmistress

This fairy postmistress was painted on heavy watercolor paper with watercolor, india ink, sparkling H2O, color pencil and lead pencils. She is an a.t.c. artdoll so folds into the atc size. Made for Rosemary at my flat paper artdoll yahoo group.

Oh my gosh I have discovered gold and orange. I love pink and gold and now orange is added to my list. I am feeling so inspired I practically don't know what to do with myself. Hope you are all having a nice time. I'm off to the drawing board to see what I can do with this new color combination in my head.

Dreaming of Flying

Made as an angel a.t.c. artdoll, this mermaid has her companion, a Rock Dove joining her as she dreams of flying, guided by her star of destiny.
Painted and drawn on heavy watercolor paper using watercolors, colored pencils, india ink, gold acrylic ink, sparkling H20, and sumi-e ink stick. The atc folds into itself to conform to the 2.5X3.5 inch size.

Mer man

He is drawn and painted using colored pencils, watercolor pencils, sparkling H2O, watercolor, and gold acrylic on heavy cold pressed watercolor paper. His tail fin will be moveable on a brad. I made him as an 'angel' paper doll because a group member did not come through with her promised doll. My mer man is just about to perform the "Mudra of the Inner Self" as he swims along. He's just come from a reading and is very inspired. Here's what he heard at the reading:

"We live on in form and illusion
And only sense in days of suffering
The eternal changeless existence
Of which dark dreams tell us.
We hope for redemption and salvation
In the unreal offerings of dreams-
Since we are gods and take part
In the very beginnings of Creation."

-partial quote by Hermann Hesse

Beijing Opera Singer

Here he stands painted for the most part, ready to be assembled into a paper doll for my swap partner at:

He is painted on heavy watercolor paper with watercolors, sparkling H20, colored pencil, india ink and gold acrylic. One of these days I am going to treat myself to a set of wooden hand manikins. Watercolors don't take to scanning but I don't know how to photograph them properly either! Oh the learning curve...

Next, it is more mermaids. I never tire of them.
