Rose Red & Snow White

Rose Red & Snow White-from the brother's Grimm's Fairy Tales-
A poor widow once lived with her two children in a lonely little cottage. In the garden grew two rose-bushes, one red and the other white, and because the children resembled the roses they bore, she named one Snow-White, and the other Red-Rose.
The children loved each other dearly, and whenever they went out, would walk hand in hand. If one said: "We will never leave each other," the other would reply: "Never, so long as we live," and the mother always said that what one had was divided with the other.
They are 11 1/2" tall x 5" wide x 5" deep. They were hand sculpted from epoxy over an armature. The skirt base is metal. There is a vintage clock gear at the bottom of their skirt. Their hair is natural white & black mohair. I hand painted them in layers and sealed them with a matte finish.
They are available in my etsy shop for now: https://www.etsy.com/listing/118232238/steampunk-conjoined-twins-art-doll-rose
Thanks so much for dropping by and having a peek! xo Michele

Fairy Tales

Just finished Sleeping Beauty, she's an 8 x 10" part sculpted, part acrylic painting. She has black roses, pearls, skulls and vintage watch gears entwined in her hair. Her eye lashes are also vintage clock gears. The leaves on the ground are from a vintage Mother Goose book.
In the locket on her forehead, is a tiny canvas painting of her true love the prince.
She is available in my etsy shop!  http://www.etsy.com/shop/michelelynchart

I also finished Snow White, which is sold already.

If I don't get back this way- Happy Turkey Day everyone!! xo Michele

Thought I'd share the first painting I did in a series of fairy tale paintings I'm doing. Meet, Red, 8 x 8" sculpted in epoxy, acrylic on wood. The trees are pages from a very old Mother Goose book. She's sold. I cant' believe how quickly the holidays are approaching! I always think I'll be ready and I never am! I'm still mourning the loss of summer! xo Michele

Meet Emma & Sophie

Meet Emma & Sophie, conjoined twins and keepers of time for the Soul Sucker...

They are 10" tall x 4 1/2" wide x 2 1/4" deep. The clock still works and is electric. They were hand sculpted from epoxy over an armature. Lots of vintage brass clock gears on their chest and sides. I also added lace to the top of their bodice and their wrists. Their hands hang from antiqued flattened brass chain. Brass pieces are in both of their eyes. Their hair is natural white mohair. I hand painted them in layers and sealed them with a matte finish. Emma and Sophie are a one of a kind collectible. They are titled, signed and dated.

Available in my etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/michelelynchart

Journey or Destination?

I was wondering, when you start a painting, doll, whatever your project is, do you plan it out, sketch it out? Or do you work on the fly? I've done both and it seems to depend on the project for me. Some things come to me in my mind completely whole and don't go away until I sculpt/paint them exactly as I see them in my mind. Others come to me in bits and pieces. I see part of it. Like the above painting I just finished, I saw the girl with the alligator on her head, with her umbrella, but I wasn't sure on the background. So how do you work? Do you then wait and let it peculate in your brain until it becomes clear? Do you sketch until you figure it out? I'm curious on how others work. I sketched her out, and still wasn't clear on the background, I thought I wanted vintage pages of text on the background, so I laid that down and sculpted her face and the alligator and sketched out the rest. Nope, that still wasn't it. So I played and along the way, the journey became clear. So by knowing the adventure from start to finish would I have missed the journey? What are your thoughts on how you work? Do you enjoy going straight to the destination or enjoy the journey to your finished artwork? xo Michele

5 x 7 paintings

I started doing some 5 x 7" paintings, I thought it would be a great way for everyone to be able to afford my artwork and they look great grouped together! The bottom two sold before I go them in the etsy shop, but the little bee and the Jaclyn in the box are still available. The little bee in is my etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/michelelyncharthttp://www.etsy.com/shop/michelelynchart Jaclyn will be in there probably tomorrow. I also added this little Jaclyn in the box:
She's sculpted out of epoxy on a vintage children's block and hand painted.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! It's finally cooled down here a bit and it's beautiful to sit out on the deck in the evening with a glass of wine! xo Michele

Available in my etsy shop, here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/michelelynchart
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I am hoping a little cooler weather finds it's way here soon or rain! Rain would be wonderful, although I think it will have to rain for a solid week to start to make a dent in the drought we have at this point. Back to work for me...xo Michele

Etsy Shop Update!

I have been a bit crazy lately (okay crazier than normal) I was finally able to leave my full time job, and get back to arting full time. Since I left 3 weeks ago, I have been accepted into 3 new galleries and was working like a mad women to get everything done. I decided to take a little break from the gallery work and create some jewelry pieces for my etsy shop. I hope to have some prints of the bigger paintings up in the shop soon too. IF I got good enough photos of them. I am by no means a good photographer. It's not the camera, it's the operator! Anyway, if you see a piece you like in the above photo, you can find them here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/michelelynchart Hope everyone had a good weekend! xo Michele
