Cat Craft and Pillow Dogs

Alice - Pillow Pet panel by Kara Skye. 
What I've been up to: a craft I call Pillow Dogs, only I have a cat.  This is Alice.  First, I create a template, then add fabrics, color, contrast, and just a little humor.  Shown, a student's dog also in pillow form.




I'm not holding any more workshops this season, so if you'd like a template made from a photograph, you can send your request by email, HERE. 


Paint Out Ends! I Feel Really Good!

Zebra Finches, colored sketch,
watercolor and pen on paper by Kara Skye
I gave my paints to someone who really needed them.  A great artist!

I have also added the button of an inspirational - in my life - artist who sells her art in her own name (and signs it) which I've tried to model myself after and I recommend you check out her site, books, blog for its sunny positivity which she terms being a Possible-tarian.  Its just the sunbeam that she meant it to be - and worked for!

If I've helped you, I could really use a shout out, comment, smiley-icon, something tonight would be nice.  I can't see any of my comments, why?  Blogger, I got this code, bX-33137e, logging in today, maybe why I don't have my comments, yet.

THANK-YOU for a Great Sale!

Elephant Status - MOVED.
The awkward feeling/embarrassment/procrastination excuses that precede the effort to sell one's own work was the elephant.
The Art Sale was rather low (key) but I thought of myself as detaching from the expectations that my work had to be priced as an investment - because then I would be sitting among my investments, alone.  Now, instead, I'm planning the next Art Sale experience; and, I'm pretty sure I know why the feeling was so great!  Its like I set my birds free to live among people who really like them - uncaged.  And it really made me happy.  Which DID NOT OUTWEIGH THE ELEPHANT - nothing ever does outweigh an elephant when it involves the procrastination excuse that lurks inside the mind; until you decide to move it and find it wasn't that bad  at all!


Birds, traditionally painted.  Mixed media - acrylic, gouache - on paper and salvaged wood.  Originals and prints.
