Inspire Me Thursday – Inspired by Mademoiselle Caroline Riviere

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

It’s been a while since I’ve participated in an Inspire Me Thursday challenge, but I’ve really enjoyed this one:

This week, let’s try something a little different. Let’s all download Mademoiselle Caroline Rivière and use her somehow in a piece of art. You can cut, collage, paint, decoupage, whatever your heart desires as long as you use some part of this image in your art.

The portrait of Mademoiselle Caroline Rivière is a painting by the French Neoclassical artist Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, now in the Louvre. [more information here]

My interpretation of this challenge was to create a watercolour painting/collage with one of my signature style backgrounds.  I also gave her a bit of a wardrobe update and a bit of extra lippy.  I’ve titled this one “Mademoiselle Caroline Riviere Dreams of Love on a Starry Night”.

If you’d like to buy this painting, it is available at my etsy store.

Addicted to Etsy

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

I have joined Etsy so I will have another outlet to sell my art – with unintended side effects!  I am really addicted to buying stuff on Etsy now.  It’s a fantastic website, so please check out my etsy shop.  I will be selling some handpainted jewellery there very soon.

In other news, I am currently working on a piece for a commission.  I will upload pictures as soon as it is finished, but I am really excited about this one :)

Yep, the year is drawing to a close, the shops have put up the Christmas decorations, and it’s time to start thinking about Christmas presents!

This also means, it’s time for a new KL Bailey Art Calendar!

I’m really happy with this year’s calendar, and I hope you will be too.  If you would like to purchase one from Redbubble, please follow this link.
