Petite Suite de Concert











Goodt eeeven..ing...(in a Boris Karloff voice),
This is a piece I've just finished called
'~*'Petite Suite de Concert,
The Land of Children's Dreams'*~
An assemblage-painting into which I've incorporated 60 year old lace from an dress that is 'breaking ' at this stage!, an antique German porcelain doll's head, wire, and 1924 music manuscript -all within a gold painted wooden frame with linen inset,handpainted form phew! oh yeah the caption reads
' come along you little ones,come along with me; And we'll float in a boat made of bright moonbeams, to the land of children's dreams'
It is the same style,using same pose ('cos I like it!lol) as a previous piece 'When Your Talking Machine Glides' posted a few weeks ago (now sold). I'm doing a series of these dancing clowns. This is the second in the collection.

Do you know woman, I'm getting fed up with writing the same thing on your blog, but this is brilliant! I love the cheeky, pixie face of the doll and the way she's leaning out of the frame. Excellent as always! xxx

It´s lovely Rainey! I love the way you have incorporated the vintage lace.

I still haven´t come round to update my blog but I have chosen and edited the pictures at least... And I managed to list two new items in my shop!!

Tomorrow Bjarne gets back and I´ll have more time again. I´ll soon send you pics of the yarn I have in mind!

Bye bye!

Rainey, you are such a wonderful talent to the art community. I just love your works. I especially love your visits with me. You always seem to put a giggle in my step! Fantastic works here...I think you should give workshops. I know I'd be in line, but with your talent, I might get waitlisted! LOL Keep creating your magic and inspiring us to do better. Have a wonderful and creative weekend my friend.

Cheers

Hi Rainey Dear - good to hear from you - I was beginning to worry!! The throw is actually hand crocheted, no machine involved there, lol. It´ll take me quite a while as I only have time in the evenings while I´m watching telly, but it´s a cosy project!

I haven´t forgotten your pink-red wristlets and scarf, I tried the raspberry yarn on the knitting machine but it´s too much texture to it so I can´t use it. I have some nice mohair yarn in a red shade, but I´m not sure it´s enough... unless you want the main colour to be pink, cause I have lots of that! But a friend of mine has some vintage yarn her father rescued from some factory and she´ll let me have some, so let me check if there are some nice colours we could use there. I´ll get it somewhen next week. Anyway, I´ll post you pics and then we´ll see.

Have a nice weekend my friend!

Bye Bye!
