This week I've been having fun reducing my drawing after scanning it into my computer and now I've collaged it into a composition on these little brooches, which I'll be listing in my Etsy shop today.
I hope to create more of these. Maybe I'll create enough to tell a whole story through eyes, text and hearts! I've also been working on a brooch especially for a customer who requested a little house featuring a particular face, the sun and the moon.
Now, even smaller, the eye is looking down from a cloud mapping the world, and the moon casts its silvery beams over a tiny door always open to adventure and bliss as long as we remain hopeful,
And the eye makes its final appearance this week on a little work in progress for my friend Lizzie whose son, Theo has just moved to Canada to live and work for a while as a chef. These little wooden houses are part of a house-warming gift for Theo and Eden as they move into their first home together. This is just the early stages and I hope to be able to show you more soon. I am hugely indebted to Mary Jane Chadbourne for the little house ideas, which I learned on her Tinytopia course last summer. Thank you for stopping by today and to Kim for continuing to host this great face making blog! In March I'm embarking on a course in painting and storytelling called The Storyteller's Art with Robin Laws and all this practice experimenting with drawing eyes is going to prove invaluable, I'm sure. Have a lovely creative week everyone.
