POM in Doll Collector Magazine

So, one of my moms recent art dolls Steam Punk Amanda a Time Passenger is in the September 2011 issue of Doll Collector magazine!  I have thus belatedly added said doll to her website and hope to get the twenty plus other finished dolls up soon too.  You can read more about it at her blog.

In other news, I ran across this inspirational page "How to Steal Like an Artist" on Austin Klean's website.  It got me a little amped, so I strapped Baby V in her stroller and readdressed the shelving layout to get my art room fixed up.  It has become the "store all" room since our big move and is the last to get into working order.  Hopefully I will finish organizing and have some new art work to share soon.

Have you come across anything you found motivating lately?  If so, please share in the comment section below.

Some kind of Fairies

Ok, so I feel bad.  I have a few things here and there to post, but find it incredibly difficult to have hands free from Baby V long enough to do day to day stuff.  I find it even more difficult to find time to do extra things like art and blogging and the myriad of other things I want and need to do.  :)  Anyways, here are a few new ACEO's I have completed.  You can see more details on my DeviantArt account and here.  Let me know what you think.  Am I working in the right direction with these and should I start going bigger than 2.5"x3.5"?  Or should I focus on some of my floral oil work like these?

Boogey Boys & Glass Mt. Princess

So I have been trying to get more of my mom, Paula's, recent art dolls up on her site this week.  I'm am very happy to say I have made three pages. One for her other two Boogey Boys Bull Boy, Devil Boy, and a new elf Glass Mountain Princess which I adore.  Here is a couple of quick pics.  Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do.  Go check out the respective links to see more images.

I got myself over to the art room and painted a little something during December. Small and not much, but at least it is something. I found some cheap frames awhile back that hold three 2.5"x3.5" photos per frame. I have eight old fairy or elf ACEO's and needed a ninth to fill up the final frame. To get an idea of the little series, here are some of the other fairy ACEO's I did back in 2007. You may recognize one, as I use it often for my online ID photos.

That's all for now.  :)
