I will be what I will be

InaRae had an idea for an art doll. Ha! She is going to take Christie's Green Goddess class. she think she can learn how to control strong minded dolls. Ha! I started out to be a beach comber, that is what she thought. I immediately tilted my proud chin to the sky and blew that plan. Me? Poking around on a beach hunting rocks and shells and such trivia? Ha! InaRae thought okay, maybe she is a bird lady, looking to the sky, ready to feed little birds from seed in her basket. Ha! I have handmaidens to do that for me. Birds indeed. I want to wear Royal Purple. I want gold trim and sky symbols on my gown. I want my hair done up like a queens. Indeed! InaRae does have a lot to learn about dolls. Think Christie's class will help? Wink!!

Beach comber is now Bird Woman

Beach Comber I has become Bird Woman. (Beach Comber 2 is okay with who she is) Funny how creations have minds o their own. Her head is angled up and wants to stay that way. But a beach comber must be searching the ground before her, not be surveying the skies. And so she will have her way of course!

Beach Comber

I am creating an art doll that will be called Beach Comber. I am collecting and creating various sea shapes, shells, pebbles, star fish, kelp, fish, and fibers so far. I've made the armature for the frame and now I'm working on the arms. It feels right to be making this special creature.

It is art day at the clubhouse where a few of us who love to create go to play on Friday's. Last week someone else needed the clubhouse for a big sale so we've been 2 weeks and I'm anxious to get going. I'm taking acrylics and plan to start a mew picture of the yard with the fish pond from a photo I took last summer. It is sunny and beautiful in the photo and again today.
Could spring be truly thinking about settling in? I so hope.
