KIDS KORNER WITH ZAHRA

Easter . . . and zahra

Spring has sprung and Easter is on it's way!

Where have I been? 

Playing. . . . . and so has Zahra!

I've discovered if viewing Kids Korner from Facebook, 
many had not seen the cupcake kids art for it wasn't visible 
unless one read the full post. So to rectify I am posting info 
on the Kid first with the cupcake art following.

And don't forget. . . . with every cupcake art sale,
the Kid Artist gets a $25 stipend for the use of their art!

PREMIERE OF THE KIDS KORNER

miss zoe . . dot . . dot

I decided it was time to play a bit.

And who knows the best way to play? 

Kids! 

So I created a Kids Korner where the little ones have been 
so gracious to lend their artwork as backdrops to the cupcakes. 

Of course I had to do some bribing with cupcakes, 
but hey. . . all is fair and art and cupcakes.

DO YOU HEAR THE SWEET MUSIC?



SWEET TUNES 
HOLLYWOODS FARMERS MARKET
6" x 6" pastel
$295 + $15 insured priority shipping


A fog greeted me as I peered out the window this morning.

Dismal? 

No, for the day took me away to a memory a short time ago. 

The day was similar with an overcast, bland sky
and my excitement grew for I was traveling to the 
Hollywoods Farmers Market. 
The bustle, colors, sounds, smells and people. . .
such a feast for eyes!

As I walked, I heard the sweetest yet soft melody from afar. 
Ahead was a man sitting in the middle of the street.
Oblivious to the crowd, he softly played the flute. 

And the fog cleared and my spirits soared!

SOUNDS THAT SOOTHE

A WINTER'S FALL
9"h x 12"w pastel
$550 + $25 insured priority shipping


The season guaranteed a quiet stroll

as the slight chill nipped my face while walking. 

And the babble of the cascading water soothed my soul.

AIN'T IT PSYCHEDELIC?

THEY GLOW IN THE DARK!

Here's a little Cupcake Couture for your daily pleasure.

The green lizard - or is it a gecko? - is actually a brooch 
that sports a laminated cupcake. Something every gal 
needs for fun.

And the 2 white lizards pins are a gift from my gal pal, 
Nancy. But the best part is that the 2 lizards 
glow in the dark!

Cool. . . . huh?

PLAY DAY OF FUN WITH FRIENDS

JOEL, BOY BIRD + NANCY

Today I hustled my doll parts to my friend, Joel's studio,
 where Artist Nancy Arthur McGehee joined us.

Now let me tell you about my friends. 
Nancy is an incredible glass artist and a prime example
of her art can be viewed at: 

Joel does about everything from painting, sculpting and mixed media,
with samples of his art at: http://www.sharpgallery.net/index.html

Above left, Joel is creating a doll by adjoining a head and body 
to an inverted piece of palm tree. The reconstructed doll will be so 
striking in all black with vivid blue eyes.

On the right, Nancy is hand crafting heads for a mixed media wall 
hanging mounted on a wood panel. Her center imagery will be a 
wired broken heart.

And center is the start of a Boy Bird that I concentrated on.
I did succeed in hot gluing fuschia and black feathers onto
the boy and attaching a thatch of blonde hair bursting out the 
top of his head. I intend to paint the base with sunny skies.

It was a day of fun, fantastic food, friends . . . and 
the sun was shining ever so bright!
