What I'm Working On


Just a picture of my [very messy] work table and some of the things I've been working on. I've been trying to paint faces for what seems like forever, never being happy with the result--either they were too "pretty" or bore no resemblance whatsoever to a face--I'm trying to strike a happy medium in between, but not there yet... The houses are very similar to ones I did last year after seeing an article in Somerset Studio, though these are short and squatty rather than tall and skinny. I've also collaged all over the surface before I textured it. A friend asked me if I could do a neighborhood for her, and so I'm experimenting. A trio of houses might be neat in a kid's room...

I love to see workspaces...I think they are so neat! I am having the same trouble with faces too...trying to find my fave niche..it's not easy!

I think this is a pretty cool and unique face - unique in that it doesn't call anything already out there to mind - therefore quite nice! Experimenting is a good thing!

I love the face in the picture! I think we are our own worst enemies when it comes to criticism. I've learned to just go with everything, because SOMEBODY will like it!

Can't wait to see the completed "neighborhood" with three or more houses.

Karen, did you write somewhere here about printers, HP vs Epson? And printer inks for printing on cloth? I thought it was in your blog. If so, which Epson printer do you suggest, and which ink? I do see the HP ink running on the recent photo/note I sewed to the back of my latest gift for grand daughter Fish quilt. Thanks for your help on this if you can.
