Latest Creation..Forget Me Never

Sometimes coming up with a name will inspire the outcome of a piece.  I've done this many times and its wonderful to see how a name affects the outcome.

This piece was commissioned by a wonderful collector who helped me create this little faerie,
by providing me with a name for her. She asked that I name the faerie 'Forget Me Never' and, that she be in a curled up position. And, I want to thank her for her inspiration. With that in mind, I was immediately sure that this little faerie would be rather sad. or melancholy.

Knowing my collector doesn't care for pink, I used red, yellow and pale orange roses which gave her a lovely old fashioned look. The rose theme was continuted through out the piece, in her hair, on her dress, her wings and the personalized trinket box book.

Last Strawberry of Summer

Pink enjoyed the last strawberry of the season today.  She checked it out first and then munched away! Will plant a pot for me next year!

Newest creation

I've gotten sidetracked a couple of times...nothing new for me, always putting somthing aside for later, after all, I have all the time in the world.  Well, this one was intended to be entered in a local competition, but life happened and she got put in a drawer. Not even put together, she lay there, just a head, legs and arms.  Every time I opened the drawer, there she was, looking at me with her soulful eyes and reminding me in some faded way of my grandmother.  She has the same gentle and kind face that I remember.... mostly from old photographs. She died when I was only four, but memories of her remain, like sitting on her lap and eating dinner.  Walking along side her holding her hand with the ever present white hankie...maybe thats why I collect hankies...never thought of it before.  I distinctly remember holding on to two of her fingers while she held the hankie in her palm. Even though I only had her for a few young years, she made an impression on me.  That being said, I felt the need to complete this one before I can continue with another.
She is titled Time Flies and is dressed in antique lace and fabrics, adorned with numerous tiny time pieces, some with wings, some still waiting in a pocket watch case laying on the hem of her dress.
