Winter's Voice



We've gone from bitter cold to warm Spring teases these past two weeks in Northern New York. Most of the snow has melted and a rain shower is due this evening. Even my heart does flip flops on what Wee Folk to start. I settled in with two offerings on Early Work Mercantile. If you haven't stopped by this selling site, it is a feast for those who love Early American inspired work. 


For me, it is the perfect site to let my heart play with my sculpts and extreme Prims.......and that I did.


For those of you that stopped by earlier in the day, Annella looks a bit different. Ever the Artist I am, and as I put her finishing touches on last night ... I realized that she didn't reflect who she truly was. When the sun rose, I ran upstairs  knowing that I just couldn't let her stay like that. A little time and tiny stitches and she is now where she should be. Who says you can't go back?


Gabby was the result of some gesture drawings. Those classroom drills keep me in sketches and characters. I love her folky look and true extreme form. 


It has been nice to enjoy a little slower pace...tea in the afternoons and Sunday evenings devoted to Downton Abby, without balancing work along with it. As January discovers it's Winter voice, I am discovering mine.

Hello Stacey,
I just wanted to say thank you - I am an artist living in the UK. I have been a doll maker for some years now, trying many different techniques. I have always been fascinated by early American folk art, and when I found your work - it was inspirational! I've recently changed the direction of my work and think I am finally on my way to finding my true style!
Warm wishes
Jules.

Your bunnies are exquisite. I am enjoying them almost as much as your pumpkin dolls.
