~Painting sets again~But, it is just a small visit~just helping out the theatre that I used to spend 40 plus hours a week working for.~I keep trying to retire from being a scenic, but~I don't really believe I can ever truly give it up.~There is so much fun in painting SO LARGE.~Mixing great big buckets of paint, using a large paint brush, a Hudson sprayer(normally used to spray your garden)~standing right on top of your painting & working your way down, splashing paint with just the right motion.~Well, it really is pretty wonderful.~I do miss it.~So, truly, I am enjoying this small visit.~
~I will take pictures tomorrow~I am painting sky's~lots of sky~pretty blues~A room filled of sky's !~All on the floor now~but, will soon be up-right on stage.~

~My PineCone Ornys~

~I have been working away on my little PineCone Ornys~but, as I have made them they have been sold , right here in my own "little world" of Richmond Va.~this makes me hap,hap,happy~but, I sure would like to have at least 10 to put on the Doll Town sight to sell .~I'm still embellishing a group, so I will hang onto them to sell.~
~And, if the little darlings were not sold~I have given away a few~this little "Nest Elf"~was my donation to Easter Seals, "  Eggstravaganza "   ~  artists create "egg art"(art w/ an egg theme), there is a silent auction at a very fancy, black tie ball & the moneys are given to Easter Seals.~Nice right ?~My son Gabriel & I both donated art this year.~We have both donated before, but this is our 1st. year donating in the same auction.~Fun~

~I finished & delivered this little side table to Glow Med Spa~a spa that I have been doing decorative painting for, over the last year.~This little table turned out so pretty~ I took my paperclay & sculpted the vines & then painted them.~2 coats of water-based clear-coat was brushed on to protect everything.~

~This little dollhouse was a Christmas present for Rowan.~ It is a Corona Dollhouse Kit~ I bid on it on ebay.~ 23 $~ There were quite a few to bid on~ I think people buy them, but never get around to putting them together.~ What a lucky little girl Rowan is~ her dad is a cabinetmaker !~ Philip is doing a beautiful job putting her little cottage together & he really is enjoying himself.~ It will be done soon, then Rowan & I will paint it.~Then the fun of decorating ~ so many decisions to make.~ There is a dollhouse store just down the street from us.~But, we plan on making a lot of our own tiny things to put in it.~ And, we need to find a little family to live in it.~ I'll keep taking pictures along the way.~

~GIVEAWAY !~ not here, yet~ over at German Dolls~ she makes the sweetest dolls, Waldorf style, & doll clothes~ I have just found her blog today.~But, I will be visiting there often.~Go, sign-up !~

~tiny sweater for Sweetest, little guy~

~tiny sweater, that I knitted for my sister, Bronwyn's sweet baby boy, Dominic.~ He was born on Dec. 30, 2010~ 3 weeks early.~ 4lbs.7oz.~ I can tell you, it is very hard to find preemie clothes~ I was amazed, I went from store to store & managed to find only 3 outfits.~Then I decided I needed to knit a sweet little sweater for Dom.~I had to make up my own pattern, but it came together pretty quickly.~
~My beautiful sister Bronwyn & her precious little, baby boy~ 2 weeks old here.~Look how beautiful they are.~

~Bronwyn is in her quiet baby world~her days & nights are all about baby Dom~I am in awe of her.~She went in for her regular check-up last year & walked out 9 weeks pregnant !~ She turned 44 in Nov.~ Dominic is her 4th. child~ Bronwyn's last baby Ella, is 12.~~~~ Isn't she beautiful ?~~~& Baby Dom is just the sweetest little fellow~ so many expressions.~I love listening to her talk to him.~
