Coraline doll, step 1, + roses

Here is Clarice with some of my pretty Mr. Lincoln roses (rosebush was a gift from Sheri a few years ago). They bloomed so well this year for Mother's Day.

Clarice has decided that we MUST make a Coraline doll, so today we bought a poseable soft-body doll at Hobby Lobby. Clarice picked out the pretty electric blue yarn for her hair. Then we worked together on sewing the hair on to the doll. This is step 1, but I promised Clarice we would post more steps as we complete the doll. This is an education for both of us, because we have never made a doll.

The Union Jack I proudly bear Emblazoned in my bulldog hair. A tribute to a fearsome man: Dear Winston, 'twas your sturdy plan That broke the chains of tyranny. How I desire to honor thee.

IF: Trail

A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.

IF: Skyline

This is not exactly a skyline, but it is a view from far below the steeple of First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, SC . We had an exquisite trip there on a gorgeous April weekend -- lots of inspirational painting ideas. Sorry this is a late post this week!
