Little iceskaters

For a younger sister's Birthday this past month, we did a party with an ''Ice Skating'' theme!
I fashioned these darling little dolls to add to our centerpiece ''ice rink'' on the table.

The body, head and limbs came in a kit, but I added the little skirt, sweater and hair or hat!
So fun.

Artwork from March

Good day, everyone!
(That is, if there is anyone left who is kind enough to read this blog!)
Here are the two paintings I accomplished this past March!
The first, a view from our backyard, was a father's day gift:

             The following painting is of my youngest sister, happily playing in a nearby river!
           Another sister had snapped this photograph, and I thought it would make an adorable sepia painting!
The following is the painting. Both pictures were taken at our Art Festival, where  I was awarded first and second prize.
