Take a ride - wips and then some -

I am surrounded by "wips" (works in progress) It actually is the way I like to work, it inspires me and it pushes me at the same time. Sometimes it punishes me and smacks me right there too yes. I am also a master at procrastination, but I also never leave loose ends. This here now for me is a time for finishing these wips that clutter my peripheral vision now, I need to have a clear start for something else that is brewing again ('cause I also always have things bubbling, brewing and growing) So I have been making loads of stuff, for the gallery/studio, for the different classes I teach and just to quench all kinds of personal thirsts. So I will share these with y'all, spread over a few different posts, otherwise they become so looooong ...and personally, I find very extended posts harder to read. Anyway.....here is some stuff I finished lately: My gal, my muse, if you have followed me a while, you know my connection with her, my alter ego : ...
Pippi - on her bike, I call it "Take a Ride"
 started her on top of an ugly old painting of mine by collaging papers
 one of the pieces read "Dutch Bikes - Omafiets" so it had to turn into something on a bike

You can wake me up for pipi langkous. Can't wait to see what you are making. Shame I can't just pop in to have a look around your Gallery. It looks a gorgeous place where you are! Oh and yes I am making many more of the dolls, they are a big hit. The button eyes were me just fooling about but I am making another one just with eyes like that.
