Another abstract and some pure silliness

Here is my third abstract and I'm pretty pleased with it! :) I used eggshells on this one along with molding paste. I even incorporated a paper clay heart. Not sure what I'll name this one yet, but wanted to share it with you.

This is my 'Happy Hour Barbie'......I really don't know what I was thinking......she's just silly. She loves her wine. She's a puddle :)



The Art Fest was so fun! This is what I purchased for myself




With the crackle on this ball it really distorts my reflection. You'll see it if you enlarge the photo by clicking on it. I look like a square head transformer type being! It also looks like my back patio is bright pink. It's cement. LOL I love my little garden ball with beads and swirly wire hanging from my tree♥

G'night,
Darla

Hi Darla,
Hm, nice piece. How about "heart on steel" the textured background has a multi steel look to it.
Your garden ball was a good find.

Oh I love your girl in the wine glass. I have some wrapping paper with a girl sitting in a wine glass and thought i would do a painting like that. I haven't done so yet but you are giving me ideas with your girl.
