So-artful Challenge: Ceil Chapman Inspired

This is a serendipitous challenge for me! We were challenged to create art inspired by the 1950's fashion designer Ceil Chapman, using pink, black, and/or silver. I was not familiar with her name, so of course turned to the Internet for guidance and found some lovely photos of her fashions.  And since I'm in the middle of Jane Davenport's online class, I "Heart" Drawing (where we're learning some elements of fashion figure drawing as a supplement to one of her earlier classes), I was inspired to create my own little sketch of a vintage Ceil Chapman dress. There are touches of silver in the trim of the dress, although they don't show up well on the scan.

Collage Obsession: Trio


I guess I'm thinking about sisters today! (I'm always thinking of my own sweet sister. Hi, I!) The trio of girls here (altered by me) is from Pringle Hill Studio.

Sunday Postcard Art: Hanukkah Wish

The theme for this week's challenge was "Christmas Fairy." Since I don't celebrate Christmas, and fairies aren't part of Hanukkah tradition, I created a Hanukkah card featuring a girl happily awaiting the Festival of Lights. The girl is from my original sketch. I wish everyone a very happy holiday season!
