Hideous Fairie From Long Ago

I'm thinking that now and then I need to get back into making some Hideous Fairies. They were fun to make and just interesting. The body was made from muslin, face and hands are Sculpty Clay, acrylic paints, and just a bunch of odds and ends for clothing and embellishments.

Right now I'm procrastinating on working on my latest project. It's a Christmas gift for a family member. Pen and ink stippling project. I've finished the boring background part. Now is the difficult detail part.

So, this was just a visit to try and return to posting on a more regular basis and at least add something fun from my art files.

Have a wonderful day and Big Squishy Hugs!

My Latest "Just for ME!" art work

This is my latest "Just for Me" pen and ink stippling portrait. Another one of Adam Ant. I'm just a tad bit obsessed. Just a TAD!

I'm currently working on Christmas gifts for family members that I will post after the holidays. I'm enjoying my return to my art immensely. I have not felt this happy, content, relaxed, and at peace in many years.

Thank you for looking at my blog and stay safe!
Big Squishy Hugs!

Returned to my artistic passion...

I have finally returned to my art passion of portrait work. These are all pen and ink, stippling technique. The top one is Adam Ant, middle is Todd Rundgren, bottom is Billy Idol. I'm currently working on another Adam Ant portrait. It's almost finished, just need to do the hair and shadowing on the face. Maybe a bit more on a bandanna he is wearing. After I finish this one I'll be focusing on creating some special Christmas gifts. 

It's been a very long year. So many changes, some good, some not so good, some very sad. But, I'm striving towards a very positive lifestyle and removing the negative people and things from my life. I've had to walk away from some difficult situations and have worked to not feel guilty about my choices. I'm finally, at 59 years old, putting my health and welfare at the top of the list. How can I give to others if I'm worn out, tired, feeling trampled and used? I can't! It's been a very long journey and about time I've moved forward!

One thing I have discovered since returning to my art passion is that I'm not as depressed any more! I'm much more content, less stressed, happier all around.
