As soon as one order is done, the next begins, and so I am back to work on MORE pirates, Frida dolls, and Catrinas as I prepare for the ACRE show in Las Vegas. This is a big wholesale show for artists and artisans to show their work to gallery and shop owners who will place orders... I'm rather nervous at the prospect, but excited at the same time!
But still, these little artistic cravings come along, urging me to take a break from production (or to do a little art before heading off to school!) From yesterday morning, before work:
A thread doodle portrait of my kitty Kiara was very much needed. She hasn't been feeling well. She was curled up just like this on my lap as I stitched this.
From tonight: I was watching a video for the course Studying Under the Masters III (presented by Jeanne Oliver) as I stitched pirates. This lesson was by Jenny Doh, about the Spanish artist Joan Miró. Very fun! After seeing Jenny's lesson I had to grab my journal and do a Miró inspired page. So much fun!
I think I will call it Creamsicle Cats. Now can't you just see a Miró-inspired thread doodle in my future? I can!
