Strip the willow...

26 September 2009 28 comments

last week I started two drawings which ended up turning into mixed media works......
perhaps a new body of work?
the title was inspired by a friend (who is a poet) after she saw the drawings and mentioned the dance...Strip the Willow...

    Hi Kim! Oh I definitely love the romantic tutu is my all-time fave colour! ;)

  • Mariuca 26.9.09

    The drawings are great Kim. Love the details on the red tutu! :)

  • Mariuca 26.9.09

    I hope you're having a great weekend! It's B's birthday today, come over for some yummy cupcakes at Mariuca later! :)

    Chop chop?

  • Jackie 27.9.09

    Hi Kim, I was just playing with the chop to see if it's possible to beat Marzie!

    I doubt it very seriously. Oh my these are just wonderful. You have been working.

    I love both!! They remind me very much of my paintings that I own by Harry Day from New England.

    They are both just fabulous!! I wish I had the money to buy a print right now.

    Maybe soon though!! I hope you are all cleaned up from the dust storm. Also, as you have dropped out of the competition would you do me a favor?

    To assure everyone that the contest was valid...would you do the drawing for me? I am concerned some may doubt the validity as I might be leaving EC for good.

    Let me know okay? and no pressure...just asking!!

    Wonderful and beautiful in color and the composition is fabulous!!


  • Jackie 27.9.09

    I knew it. She's unbeatable!! hey I just got my adgetize code up and I am waiting for approval.

    It was so simple!! I love it!! I'll adgetize you while I'm here!!

    shop, shop

    The red tutu is truly elegant - like an orchid in bloom yhet you stiol see the danced - so graceful and poised.

    I like both, but am drawn to the lines in red.

    Why are they called tutu's?

    You inspire me to do a mumu series....
