Hi Everyone!
I'm still working on my commission-
Its going to be my interpretation of the crying Virgin Mary (La Virgencita) with some red roses. The daughter requested it for her mom as a gift.  I loved looking up images of Mary. She has been depicted by so many artists throughout history, at so many different ages and in so many different styles. I have done angels in the past but this is going to be my first religious Icon. I am already having fun gathering the materials. I will post some pics this weekend.

P.S. For all of you Tim Burton fans out there, this is the new Alice in Wonderland. I can't wait to see her and Johnny Depp in this remake.

You mentioned you were going to start making characters that were a little weirder, if so, why don't you join mrsbo?
That way you can participate in a challenge and even in doll exchanges between members

That sounds wonderful Kamila, thank you so much for the info. I will contact coppermouse asap. I have had a few creepy characters in mind but I wasn't sure what I would do with them if I made them. I offended and lost some of my customers a few years ago when I made a chinese nude dragon lady. The people that have bought my pretty fairies and cute babies were not too eager to see my work change, but I think I need to do it for me. Thanks again Kamila.

Rosanna, it's so nice to visit your blog and see your beautiful art!
I look forward to seeing your Mary piece. I love anything to Mary...Our Lady of Guadaloupe is one of my favorites. I'll be back to see how she is coming along. :)

Rosanna said...

Thank you Marilyn, I'm honored that you stopped by. I also love things of Mary and Joan of Arc. I have a small collection of pictures I have found at antique stores. I am very drawn to the ones where they look very young and still childlike.
