"The Best in Show"

I am very exited and honored by being awarded "The Best in Show" for "May33" show this month!

The show is sponsored by "mySLART" St. Louis organization that  promotes local artists. The show happens every month and features 33 regional artists.

This was my first time to participate and wow, what a debut! I entered my three girls.
Here are some pictures from the show:

 It was a great event I am definitely looking forward into doing it again! The pictures from the show are the curtesy of mySLART

Yes, and then some  of my friends have come up, to show their support, and oh boy, we sure had some fun!

The Experiment

It has been a long time since I blogged, but not because my passion for dolls has cooled. On the
contrary, I am having a great time experimenting with new ways of sculpting. I have decided to change my approach a little. I bought an ebook written by one of the masters of the craft and the artist whom I greatly admire, Elena Kunin.

Since it was the very first time doing a head this way, I was not sure if I want to go on and finish off the doll completely, or move on to the next head. However, as soon I painted her, I liked her enough to continue. Not everything about it I like, but I think she turned out interesting. Here are the first results.
