Emaline, miniature mohair Artist Bear

Emaline is a miniature mohair artist bear.  She is only 2 1/2" tall and was hand stitched.  Her mohair was hand dyed and shaded.  She is wearing a vintage lace skirt, a necklace made of vintage glass beads.  She has glass eyes and an embroidered nose and mouth.  Emaline has tiny stainless steel shot in her tummy to give her a little weight and to help her sit nicely.  She is available in my Etsy shop.

A New Ellifolks Teddy, Rabbit and Chick, and Four Art Prints in Etsy Shop

Two new Ellifolks critters are now in my Etsy shop along with two new art prints.

Johnson, a mohair artist bear is hand dyed and hand shaded to give a rich, vintage coloring. I used a sparse mohair for Johnson to add to the vintage look and feel.  He has one glass eye with a wool felt edging and one vintage shoe button eye ringed with a red embroidered circle. His circle nose is embroidered with pearl cotton thread. He is stuffed with excelsior and cotton batting.

Harriet Rabbit and Sam are a hand dyed and hand shaded pale pink rabbit and a hand dyed and hand shaded pale green chick both made of sparse German mohairs.

Harriet Rabbit is approximately 8" tall including ears and is cotter-pin jointed for a vintage feel. She is wearing a needle-felted purple polka dot hat with cotton lace trim. She has German glass eyes and a pearl cotton embroidered nose and mouth. She is stuffed with excelsior and cotton batting. She has steel shot in her tummy to give her a nice weight.

Sam Chick is approximately 4 1/4" tall including his purple glass bead legs and feet. He has a needle-felted comb and beak and German glass eyes. He is stuffed with excelsior.

"Boy With Dog" is a fine art giclée print of one of my original color pencil and digital paintings.  I did a drawing with color pencils and then scanned it into my computer.  I colored it in Procreate using many layers and types of digital brushes.

"Girl With Poodle and Flowers" is a fine art giclée print of one of my original mixed media/acrylic paintings. This was painted on a  cradled wood panel.  I started with a very textured layer of gesso and incorporated the texture into the painting.  I also used pencil and color pencils in the painting.

"Sail" is a digital painting I made in Illustrator.  I like the combination of the clean, flat shapes with gradient color.

New Print, Meadowland, in Etsy Shop

I just added my first print of one of my paintings to my Etsy shop.  The original is an acrylic/mixed media painting on hot press watercolor paper, done in many layers and incorporating pencil and water-soluble oil pastels, too.  I will be adding more prints shortly.

I have to thank Mindy Murphy Lacefield for her wonderful online class, "Paint Your Story".  If you get a chance to take it, I highly recommend it.  She really gives you the tools and encouragement to find freedom in your art.
