This is my newest piece called “Tea with Angelica and Mary.” Angelica Kauffman and Mary Moser have just seated themselves for some tea that they pour from their Saartjie Baartman teapot. Above them is their silhouette of a nameless dead white guy who has apparently posed for Kara Walker.
I just opened my little store on Etsy and am selling prints of my drawings so far, but I will probably sell some originals there too! I’ve even made a few sales already! Yay! Come check it out at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ArtByKristinBell
I just completed this little art project. I had an old frame with three panels hanging around and I wanted to do something with it, so I made this!
I just made this little sculpey puppy for one of my friends. She loves dogs and has some that are white and fluffy. The puppy is actually really tiny and it was difficult to get all of the fur on. I’m still going to try to figure out how to do it more efficiently perhaps. This is one of the first sculpey sculptures I’ve made and today is the first day of using it! So far it is really fun! :)
I decided the bird needed some babies, so I added some babies in a nest on this one.
“The Shiniest Jewel: A Family Love Story,” by Marian Henley is a graphic novel that you won’t want to put down! The story of adoption, life, love, etc. told in adorable cartoons. If you have never read a graphic novel, you should start with this one. You won’t be disappointed. Maybe you are thinking “I’m an adult, I don’t do cartoon books! I need small type, 500+ pages and footnotes to believe I’m really reading.” haha. Don’t be silly. Really, you don’t need to prove to anyone how serious a reader you are! Indulge in some chocolate here! Besides, this book IS serious!
