to her lover in the sea. her heart is what she wants to give.
Title: Come Hither
" Come Hither" she calls to her lover in the sea. Her heart she is waiting to give to thee.
This is an original folk art painting, done by me, Kali. It measures 8 X 10 and was made with acrylics, water colors, and ink. Tiny pieces of vintage papers have been collaged into the piece. "Come Hither" was completed with a crackle glaze. The small clay hand that the mermaid is holding out to her lover ( also handmade by me) is holding a tiny sterling silver heart.
Just in time for Valentine's Day.

I had the best news today. A doll I donated to CraftHope on Etsy sold today. This great shop is raising funds for Doctors Without Borders. All proceeds from the shop go directly to the relief efforts in Haiti.
Here's an update from their web site:
As of this morning we have raised just over $20,000 for Doctors Without Borders, 1,155 sales, and currently have over 155 items for sale in the shop. We have approximately 300 more listings to add to the shop. Please do not be confused and think the shop is closed. We are OPEN for business. We just need to take a two week break to get a more formal system in place for accepting donations. Please spread the word that you can support Doctors Without Borders by shopping in the Craft Hope for Haiti Etsy shop.

This is Magdelina, and she is determined to be loved "as is". Her New Year's Resolution is to accept herself. She's made up her mind to live out loud.To stop straightening her curls and to wear her brightly colored clothes. So what if people look. Maybe someone will love her "as is".
Magdelina is a one of a kind clay art doll, handmade by me, without the use of any molds. She measures approx: 8 1/2 inches (including her base). She was painted with acrylics, oils, and pencils. Her top has been distressed for a vintage feel, and her beautiful skirt features a bright pink bird with a flower in its mouth.
