The Twiglettes

Happy St. Paddy's Day...to all my faithful friends...

this did it...one look is all it took....this very picture of a magnificent metalwork bed by shawn lovell...inspired a whole new stream of creativity for me...

upon seeing this dreamy bed....i immediately took up my pencil and began sketching...before i knew what happened...twiggie and sprig were born...they sprung to life out of the end of my graphite...just as a branch emerges from a tree...

introducing the twiglettes...

twiggie and sprig



then i was off to find just the right twiglet...for the mixed media pieces i will show in the near future...it took some doing...but on this walkway to the beach i found just the right twigs....from a a gnarled beach tree...the tiny twigs just called, "make wings out of me".

i am fascinated with the possibilities of them...so many ideas...so little time...

they are the first portraits from 'the twiglettes' series...they are so adorably cute...twiggie is a little shy and soft spoken...while sprig is a tomboy wanna be...do you have any ideas for sibling names???

leavern, barque, treesha, seeda, woodly, branch, woody.

the original paintings and prints will be available next week on boutique cre8tiva...along with a few more surprises...

i have been so out of focus recently...i had a little time to reflect and restore this weekend...what i do know is that God loves me...and i believe that He has a great plan for my life...i don't know what He knows...so i am going to trust Him to get me there...this is a new life and a new day and i must live it...and stand i my truth...the new and improved rebecca is journeying forth...Cre8Tiva in tow...glad to be back

Rebecca, these twiglettes are adorable. I also fell in love with the bed but then the price knocked me back to reality.

I'm glad you had a bit of time to restore.

Remember it's one small bite at a time. I wish you peace and comfort in the coming days.

Please let me know when you venture to San Diego, and we can spend the entire day creating.

Best to you.

Andrea
