Ursula art doll

 I'm afraid I can't help it. Just when I have absolutely no time to spend making something whimsical, it is what I feel compelled to do. Ursula just came to me in a flash and needed me to make her. 

 Oh well, I can honestly say that I feel more grounded and centered now that she is here, so I suppose it was the best possible use of time in the the grand scheme of things.  If an artist can't follow her bliss sometimes, really, who can?!
Ursula and her baby bear are available on Etsy, and though my daughter will miss her, there will certainly be more where she came from ;)

So sweet!

Here is the watercolor portrait I was working on this week! She gave such a sweet smile for the camera =)
I get to borrow this one back for the art fair I am participating in soon. It is a really nice juried show that I always have visited, myself, so I am very happy to be a part of it this time around. Here is the info, for those of you who plan ahead:

Hyde Park Square Art Show
Cincinnati, Ohio
October 2nd

I will be bringing my portrait samples, small landscapes and slightly nervous self (this is my first art fair!)

New studio and new portraits


 I moved my studio into a new room with more light. Loving it!

Here is what my palette looks like with basic portrait colors mixed and ready to go. 
It's all downhill from here, as far as neatness goes =)
