I was fortunate to sell four of my ornies and a couple of Little Jack pins at the Artist Bazaar on Friday night. Scary Skellie who you met in my last post is gone as well as Batilla, and the Queen of Hearts, who I finished at the last minute and forgot to make their pictures.
This is "Frankie Baby". He's quite the handsome fellow and sure to steal the heart of any lovely lady in town, just as his was stolen....he's looking for his bride.
And I'd like you to meet "Millicent Monster" all dressed up for the Halloween Ball. I wonder if she found a date?

Selene longed to be in the place of her birth. I know that she is there now. She has descended the stairs to the fairy glen and has gazed upon her true love. He has been waiting there for her peaceful in sleep. I can see her now, gliding down the stairs through the mist, led by the flickering lights on the banks of the glen. Selene and her love are now togerher forever.

Pictured above is just a hint of the lovely Selene whose creator is Tracey of http://jasmoonbutterfly.blogspot.com/ of London. Selene traveled to to the California home of Martha of Ayala Art http://ilove2paint.blogspot.com/ where she was given a beautiful serene face and long black hair and then to me to be dressed and accessorized. Selene has had a exciting trip delayed by volcanic ash and other tragedies along the way, but soon she and her amazing journal will return home to England.

Luna is in London now and soon she and her journal will be completed and she will go home to California. I can wait to see the complete transformation of this lovely creature. She will go back to the glen where the fairies dance, but she will always remember her time in Florida where the whisper of the waves as they touched the shore helped her find magic.

Along with Victoria is a journal that travels with her. I placed a picture frame on the cover so that her picture can change as she changes and a picture of the final doll can grace the cover at the end of her journey. The journal is made from brown paper bags covered with different scrapbook papers. I can't wait to see the changes that will happen to Victoria and to read about her travels in her journal.
I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of Luna from Ayala Art. She is traveling to Florida from California. Together we will dance in the moonlight.

So jump on the magic carpet and fly into my world.
I live on a lake in central Florida so I find different creatures every time I step outside. Some are old friends that return daily for a handout and others are just passing through. I am always looking for something new to learn. Right now I looking for a soap making class nearby. I started creating art dolls a year ago. And what a year that has been. I have met some incredibly talented doll makers on the internet and even sold a few dolls. My art dolls are all one of a kind and are usually described as whimsical. I would love for you to have one. SOOOOO........
You can also have a chance to win another of my creations, "The Queen of Hopeful Hearts" if you visit the http://artdollsonly.blogspot.com/ . Several members of our group have donated a piece of their fabulous work to be given away. So by visiting you can look at some amazing art and maybe the genie will let you take one of them home.

People who see the picture often ask me how long it took to finish the picture, and my answer is I really don't know. I did the picture for an assignment for a class I was taking. You had to turn a picture into a piece of word art. I started the picture by sketching Willie lightly in pencil. Then I used different hard and soft lead pencils and colored pencils to get the effect I wanted. After the intitial drawing, I put the picture on a table and would work on it when I had time. Sometimes it would be for a few minutes and sometimes a few hours. At the time I didn't know how much I would like the picture when it was finished so I didn't calculate the time.
The picture is composed with Willie's name and the words to his songs. His name is repeated many times and some of the songs are repeated and some are used only one time. I used them where I thought they fit on the picture.
For example, "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain" had to go in his eyes. This is only picture I have done in this style and many have asked, "Has Willie seen it?" and my answer is ,"No." Someday maybe he will.
