Getting Ready- Getting Excited!

The Artist Doll and Teddy Bear Convention  presented by the Susan Quinlan Doll and Teddy Bear Museum is about a month away and I could not be more excited! I am excited about the show bears I am creating, about the special gallery pieces I am making, and the presentation that I will be doing! I am excited about taking a sculpting workshop from one of my favorite doll artists, attending the many presentations, and viewing the special galleries! I am excited about seeing artist and collector friends and meeting new people! Did I mention I am excited?

I have been working on some special pieces for this show and I still have a lot to do, but I wanted to give a bit of a sneak peak here since I have not posted in a while. Some of these are much farther along now than these photos, but I need to make this post quick so I can get back to work in my studio, besides, this is meant to be a teaser!

One of the special galleries at the show is a gallery of dolls by bear artists and bears by doll artists. I have been looking forward to making something for this since I first heard about it at the end of last year's show! One of these heads will be finished for the show (I hope-- I still have lots of bears to finish, too.)


















A second special gallery is the Funk and Junk Gallery. I have already made something fun with this stuff, but he deserves his own post so I will share him later!




















Finally, here are a few of the bears I have in progress for the show. Some are getting close and some have far to go.


















If you are interested in artist made dolls and Teddy Bears this is a show thatt should not be missed! Visit the website to find out more. I hope to see some of you  there!
