Happy Birthday to ME!!

It's my BIRTHDAY today! Look what I got in the mail... my new itty bitty business cards for Whimsical Oddities. I love them. Happy Birthday to me!

Sorry about the lack of ArtPrize posts. They are coming -- really, they are! They are just living on my memory card... in my camera...

Loaded the art process for "Pure" to my flickr account. Check there for more images. Unfortunately, I only had my cell phone camera in the art cave, so not the most fabulous images! More photos here:

The girls will be hung tomorrow at the Douglas J Aveda Institute!

My proposal was to create a custom Whimsical Oddity for my venue with subject matter to tie in with the space. This Whimsical Oddity series is called "Pure" reflecting the pure ingredients used in Aveda products. There are three wood panels with three vintage doll photographs covered in natural beeswax.

Each doll panel has a name with the definition "pure" in it. Agnes, Chastity, and Blanche.

If you're in the area, check them out during ArtPrize! 

I will post the art process for these pieces soon--- so come on back!

Some Odd Bits....

Here are some Oddities from the past....

Hey, Girls...

The art piece is in progress! I'm hoping to have it completed by the weekend. There are three panels measuring 30" x 30" each. I wanted to do something to tie into the venue yet still showcase my Oddities. The title is "Pure" reflecting the pure ingredients used in Aveda products. I have also incorporated some natural beeswax.

I have attached a sneak peek at the beginning process. I lined the girls up for an audition-- only three made it!
