Hello All,

I haven't done much sewing this week.  The Strathmore on-line class I'm taking with Jane La Fazio has inspired me to draw and paint.

This is what I've done this week.

These were collected while walking my little dog.

 Jane had us pick an object to use a a model.  This Buddha was drawn from the 3" Buddha head I've had for years.  I remember I bought it at the Bombay store for $1, amazing!

I collected devotional candles when I lived in Santa Fe.   The painting of Mary comes from the Sacred Heart of Mary candle.

I love faces.  Our lives are etched in our faces.


  1. I love the feather! The Buddha reminds me a bit of Dean's Samulet from Supernatural. Yeah. I'm a bit of a nerd. :)

  2. Guess you're enjoying Jane's class :) It's all wonderful work, but your Mary is by far my favourite... she's truly beautiful!

    1. Thank you. The feather did come out nice. I had to look up your reference to Dean in Supernatural. I've never heard of it before. (Supernatural make me think of Santana.)

    2. Thank you, Claire. Mary is my favorite too. She just seemed to flow. I'm working on a portrait of my late husband and it's much more difficult.
