this series came out of me this week. something a little folk inspired. There are 20 prints of each now available through here or here or just email. each is printed onto the most amazing paper i have been using..unfortunately I cannot capture the sheen of the ink in the photos.
It has taken me too long to get these finished and ready for sale. Today I am crossing things of my list, even if it is whilst still in my pjs and slippers. I'm child free for a few hours and savouring every quite, uninterrupted moment.
Life sure is busy for me at the moment. I am surrounded by unfinished projects and the addition of show holidays, pupil free holidays, sickness, husband OS for work (AGAIN!!!!) no relies at hand to help, daycare mum away on holidays and promised playdates with kindy and school friends.....well, there isn't much time for anything. I'm surprised I am allowing myself to blog.
I'm working on some new dolls. Its only taken me 4 months to get to this stage. You can see some little help to the side. 'what are you doing mum?" "why?" "who for?" "can I have one too?" "why not?" "when later?" "I'm hungry" "can you help me make a party hat?" "what's for dinner?"....
Sadly I didn't get my printer fixed. Instead I got a new one. Its heaps better than the old one, but isn't it a shame that we live in a world where the costs of fixing something is almost the same as replacing it?? What do I do with the old one? Anyway, I have broken in the new one with these 6 prints now available in the shop.
I sent the kids away with Mr N to get hair cuts and to run a few errands, whilst I spent some time in my studio finishing works and drawing out new ideas. I've been struggling to break free from the 'matryoshka hooded face' for sometime. I'm still drawing these, but I get a bored with them from time to time. This new series, Folk Girls, is the best I've managed to produce so far. Now all I have to do is get my printer fixed and I can start to see if they will make a good print to sell. I also will be updating my shop with some new works, including some collaged shoes, just as soon as I find a shoe box for my son to play with, hang out the washing, clean the kitchen and replay the same home video movie of Miss M when she was a baby to keep her happy for the next 30 minutes.
