Crone update


My muse is a fickle mistress... well, ok - perhaps my muse is just a might cranky!

It's no wonder, I keep throwing more and more projects her way.
Sometimes an idea is so strong that the art piece practically makes itself, other times not so much.
The Cranky Crone is there, in my mind, kind of grumbling around in the back - amongst the dusty debris. I know that eventually she will waddle up to the forefront, its just a matter of time.
Meanwhile, I have been collecting ideas and supplies;
An old Edwardian jacket - too ripped and torn to be worn
A vintage Halloween costume, not sure if I will use the whole thing
or just that yummy Green ruffle.
Ok - so the crone has her shoes picked out - isn't that the most important thing?
Gnarly hands - worthy of her "Crankiness"
The beginnings of a face. Can't tell if that is a grimace or a smile... or a bit of both.
I have also been sketching, Madame Crone is to have a backdrop.
I am guessing Lori has made more progress on her Cranky Crone
Visit her blog
to see how her piece is progressing.
Come back and visit us again in March for the big reveal.

It is starting to look very interesting. That Edwardian jacket is really a great piece.
