Sneak Peek....

What I've been "up to"....
So....this is what I've been working on....designing and making a line of dolls based on the 'creeper' characters found in many of my original paintings.
As my very first creation, this little guy will not be offered for sale. For more than twenty five years, I have always sold completely out of my creations and because of a flooded basement, I don't even have pictures of those creations. Some were so special and unique that I really wished I had kept, at least, one of the original pieces from some of these creations for my own collection.

I have worked on several designs, for these little guys (and gals), and have elected to go with a painted head and hands finish with yarn hair...the hair on this guy is called 'eyelash yarn'. I found it at Joann's Fabrics.
The body is muslin, stuffed with fiberfill and weighted with rice. I am looking for a spray on finish to protect the painted surfaces of the dolls.

I still have a few 'kinks' to work out before I can put them in the shop...but, I have to tell you, I do have some really cute little guys in various stages of completion.

I'm hoping that I can have them ready by this time next week.

In the meantime...I have listed a few new original ACEO paintings...and I hope to paint a few more by the week-end.
