Illustration Friday: Hats

She really doesn't like polka dots, and she likes to think she's not the kind of girl who wears her antennae everywhere... Ah, well, she decides, you are what you are.

I would have loved doing this topic if I hadn't found out I was going to have five pieces hanging in a gallery over November/December. As it is, I'm running around trying to get a million things done all at once--Choosing pieces, getting them ready to hang (eye screws and wire), framing the large piece, writing my biography and artist's statement--aaaah! As if normal life isn't already too much for me!

A gal who knows her own heart. Did mother insist she wear the polka dots today? Oh dear.

Keep breathing while doing all that getting ready. How exciting.
I am thrilled for you!
Yea for Karen!!! RAH RAH RAH!!!

These are really great problems to have! Keep up the good work and let us know how it goes.

You know what they say...the only thing worse than not getting what you want is getting it.

It is amazing the number of beautiful pieces you create in a week! Love these paintings and they sure have to be out there in a gallery somewhere so that people can see and feel them:)
Have a great day, bon courage for all the work to come. Great art.

I really like the creativity
and the story!!!!!
LOVE the stories with the piece.

I stay behind, so I can certainly understand that you are "behind" as well.

And it seems that it only gets busier.
Isn't that great!

I am so in the same place right now. Normal life is quite enough... now add being a busy artist. Your work really seems to thrive under pressure, though - it's fresh and awesome!

I like the colours of her polkadot wings, and the magenta sky above the green field. The colours are really lovely and her look is interesting!
Have a great day and good luck for everything,
