Technique example...

These pictures show his tecnique a little better. The further you get away from the picture, the clearer the image gets. He sold a painting of Mount Rushmore the day after we were there and has other prospect brewing...

TIM PAGE Brilliant!!!

My husband and I went on a short trip to see our family and this was the first time we saw Tim Page's art (Tim is married to my husbands cousin, Jennifer) Their home is a creative refuge for themselves and their 3 fantastic kids. Jennifer plays the violin and is a musical genious. :) Roman is an excellent athlete, Rebekah is a creative painter, designer and book maker, and Gabe is a smart, studious boy with lots of talents. We weren't there long enough to take in all the wonders of the family and all that were there but it was a very inspiring day. I love everyone I met. I gravitate towards the creative so don't fell like I'm leaving anyone out on purpose. Tim needs recognition for his art. My and Mark's hope is that he will put his art on ETSY for starters. I don't know if these pictures do them justice but his procedures are very precise and dynamic. The pictures here are of a self portrait. He is wearing a beret and it is a self portrait so kinda "cliche" so he says. It is brilliant! The image is made up of small painted squares (similar to pointilism)with predetermined values inputed into his invented computer program. (Sorry this may not be his way of explaining it- I was so excited I was having a hard time taking it all in. My hope for him is that he can quit his day job!! :) Big Hugs and blessings to all of the family. XOXOXO

Conversation Peace

My friend, Krysten is new to Etsy and is a spectacular artist. She makes jewelry, re vamps vintage phones, paints and does amazing henna work. Her father is an excellent artist too. You can see some of their work at Krysten's Etsy shop. http://conversationpeace.etsy.com

My sister's art~

She just started taking an drawing/art class and this is her first image created after the class. I think it is so adorable. It is in her Esty shop (see link)I've been trying to figure out what the writing says...

Babooshka Bustier!

I made this corset with real rabbit fur and winter white velvet. My sister made one similar to it a long time ago and it has always stuck in my head so I thought i would try one similar but longer. White rabbit fur fell into my lap, so to speak, s I figured now was the time. The one she made had really nice gold trim with white and gold brocade fabric. It was beautiful! It sold out of Astro Wares art gallery many years ago. My sister, Izabella (computer name) is quite a talented artist but rootbound like so many of us. She has sooooo much creativity inside but doubts it just like most of us artist do. She has started drawing again so I will post a sample of her work above. Make sure you check out her blog...she has a gift of bringing people together and inspiring others. She is the best sister evah!!! My friend, Ivy Long, said it reminds her of Dr. Zhivago!

Vintage French Boudoir Doll

I found this doll and she was a mess! With a little love and care she is as sweet as can be. I've never had an interest in dolls but this one is special...so much history. It has recently sold out of my ETSY shop. To me, it is symbolic how God can take a person with a rough road or a wandering path behind them and make it into something beautiful when it looked as though there was no hope!

LOVE RULES by Michelle Renee~

There is a story behind this... I made this last summer and listed it in my Etsy shop. I was going to name it "Love Rules the Kingdom" and something told me not to just call it "Love Rules". Then I went in to my store to remove a portion of an art piece/ corset because it was not selling and I was thinking it just wasn't working. So I went in to go make adjustments and remove part of it and my computer went haywire. It would not let me make the changes! Within a few days, Courtney Love Cobain came along and generously purchased the crown, the corset and some other items. They were definitely meant to be hers!! She is a sweetheart and a great customer. I am grateful!

Special order for Anais Lace Sleeve

This is the material I was planning to make your lace sleeve out of. I put lots of rhinestones, sequins, crystals, black stones and pearls on it. I just need the length of your arm from your elbow to your wrist then I can sew it up. There is light pink material behind it so you will be able to see your skin tone through the lace. You like??

TRUE LOVE Challenge On Outsider Artists

This is my project for the True Love challenge on the Outsider Artist site. (I know, It is kinda prissy) Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!! It can be purchased for $69.00 at www.outsider-artists.net in my shop. Be sure and check out all the other artists too.

Here is the finished product for a custom order for Shannon. My sweet friend, Ivy Long from Vermont included it on a treasury she made. Her blog link is on my favs...She does exceptional work and will be working on custom projects for Courtney Love! Check out her site.

Boudoir Queen!!

I have never had an interest in dolls until I found a few french boudior dolls and now I am searching them out. This one is probably my favorite so I priced her high on etsy so hopefully she won't sell! :) The second one was purchased by the famous Boudoir Queen!! :) Thanks again!!

I am so glad that this sold to the Boudior Queen on Etsy. She is an avid doll collector and really appreciates the boudior doll's unusual beauty. Her etsy site is boudiorqueen.etsy.com. Very eccentric!!
