First of Three Paintings Commission

I am working on three paintings presently for one person.
The theme is Three Sisters..I just finished the first one.
The first one I just finished was inspired by Raphael The Three Graces.
The Three Graces are the personification of grace and beauty.
In Raphaels The Three Graces all women have their hand on each other's shoulders, and I was immediately
inspired to create a mixed media work using that same idea , because the Three Sisters are very close to each other. It was a great challenge, and enjoyed creating this  artwork for Jenni.
Although Jenni and I know each other only thru helping each other out thru etsy, we don't know each other well; but after doing these three paintings I feel a closeness I can relate to,because we are also Three Sisters.

In the Three Sisters I created the customer wanted specific items held in their hands a sun, moon and star

 The second painting was inspired from a photo of my 2 sisters and myself. 
In this painting more so than the other two, I felt some sadness.Just
the way it turned out. By writing the three words Love Faith and Hope it enhanced
the love and closeness of the Three Sisters under trying situations

In the last painting The Three Sisters are under an arch. I was inspired by different artists.
I used a crackling technique
to make the building look old.This painting also depicts the closeness with The Three Sisters.

Mother's Day Poem

Wishing everyone a wonderful Happy Mother's Day!
This is a little poem I wrote.
I'm  very close to my mom

Mother's Day Poem by Mariette Hebert

A mother is there for all your needs
She is very special indeed!
Listening to your woes!
It is indeed very so!
I love her because she gave me life
Took care of me day and nite
I love my mother so
Like there's no tomorrow
She is one of a kind
And of course I don't mind
Because she is my mother
And there is no other to replace her

With love

New Photos of Bijou my cat

Today was a beautiful sunny day in Vancouver.
I spend the day working on a Whimsical Wooden/Polymer clay doll, which you
can see in previous post.
Trying to finished 'unfinished projects'.
It's very satisfying when I do. Some of them laid away as if to say..c'mon get on
with I'm next
I recently had a commission request for 3 paintings for one person.
Started the first one...

Here are a few pictures of Bijou I took today
He's sitting on top of his scratching post. It's
near the window , therefore , he gets a good view of the garden,and birds of course ;-)

Whimsical Fairy Wooden/Polymer clay doll

I just finished this little cuty today.
The face,arms,and legs ( with little shoes) are
attached to a piece of plywood, thru wiring and nails.
If you click on photo and enlarge it you can see crackle effects on face, wood , bird
basically everything.
It was so so fun to make.
I learned how to make this doll   with Nancy Williams, a doll maker,
You can find her here>>>
