I though I would share a few pictures of Lilian Grace with you this morning. She is one of my new creations fashioned from a vintage birdcage. This piece is on it's way to Collins Gifts ( www.collinsgifts.com )in New Hampshire. I was just tickled with how she came out! Nancy, does this birdcage look familiar...I love the door, and the swing...and the green bottom for Spring!
If you are new to my work, I tend to come up with a few new inspiring ideas and my mind let it run it's course for a year. I make very few pieces of the same concept. I will be making one more birdcage figure for Spring for Wilson & Wilson Folk Art and then a few for Autumn...then it will be on to a new inspiration! The same idea applies to the clock cases....and so on. It is my way of keeping an idea special, and also encourages me to go out there and find something interesting...and usually old...
to create the next line!
I think that today, along with working along on a few special orders, I will start making another new pattern.
Also, I wanted to mention that I am now posting again on a great website www.theprimitivegathering.com
. This is a shopping website where wonderful primitive folk artists sell their work. Take a peek! I have sold my Matilda doll~ she is headed to her new special home...but I still have a new make-do pincushion with a fuzzy mohair chick on top!
Hope you have a great day!
