playing with dolls

Here is one of my first attempts at making an art doll. It was created for the Icon Doll Challenge. I had to think a long time about icons. I didn't want to stay within the traditional boundaries of religious interpretations , but I did want to portray something i truly revered. This is how The painter's muse:keeper of the colors was born.

Homebound and cold

I've been at home for days now; at first really loving my self imposed isolation,but now beginning to feel a little too isolated. I've spent many,many hours at the computer and my head is crowded with the amazing array of creative individuals I've discovered. How do people create so much beauty on a daily basis? I am humbled.

My own creative path seems to be stuck at a very long red light. I'm not sure of the next turn, so I just keep going along the same road, but I know there's a detour ahead.

For right now, my favorite place is under covers with the cats beside me. Hey guys, move over!!

the virgin blog (with apologies to ingmar)

Good morning. This is my very first attempt at blogging and i feel the same apprehension i feel at the start of any Bergman film. What's this about and where will it go? What deep,dark developments will occur? Insights? Awareness? What beauty will bubble up from the desecrated ground? We will see.
