(Virtually) live from Queensland Australia it's PAINT PARTY FRIDAY!!!

Exciting news (well for me) One of my little Nudes (well big breasted actually, but it's a little aceo) has been used as a muse, by Magaly at Pagan Culture, she has written a... well I was going to say sonnet, then ode then I realised I couldn't really remember what that really meant but I definitely know it's nor Haiku, but what she has written, well, words, beautiful words for an artist, inspired words celebrating the female form, I am so honoured (actually, that's to formal, I'm freakin thrilled) that that little beauty inspired such a deliciously sensual response, utterly chuffed... I'd love you to check it out & maybe leave a comment and while you're there, if you could ROOOOLLLLLLLL on down, you will find a Surfing goddess, I took the photo at our local beach (actually it's a little bay hidden away from the hustle of main beach) this goddess was given form by my hubby Frayz & he wrote the words that embrace it... if you like it please leave a comment on the post... 


But... 


Befooore you do, I want to share my PPF work below, I finished 3 little canvas babes and I've started on a larger one (ahh make that 2), I am taking part in Vanessa's fancy & fantastical "Mad Tea Party" on the 25th June (I do anything for a freshly baked scone, blackberry jam and dollop of luscious cream) and because I'm not known as Speedy Gonzales when it comes to art I thought I'd get my finger out & get cracking... I'm not sure what my door prize will be yet... let's just say, a work in progress, a surprise (for all of us) LOL
Paint Party Friday participants & supporters are a freaking AWESOME bunch so thanks for joining in the fun & think about throwing your name on the list, to check out a list of Party people to visit & for more info just press..... PPF :)

I love your blog - you are so funny! These little babes are the cutest wee things - I love them and their wee friends!! Your nude is fabulous - esp considering she's teeny tine ACEO-sized! So different from your cute wee girls. I don't know if I am missing something but I couldn't see any surfing babe on the post??

Felix YOU make me smile & then stand back in awe of your blog, totally utterly so like (no IS) a SUPER BLOG! I need some bigger, more impressive words to even say how good it is, I love your space, your face & you :) Thank goodness for the virtual world otherwise we'd never catch up LOL, Have a great weekend babe :)
Ann so cool to see you back, I'm coming on over, got my Doc Martins on ready to visit ;)
Gloria, do you know that song GLOR-I-A??? I think Kinks sang it, no Van Morrison... actually I better check, but every time I read your name I sing it, that's gotta be good :)
Jamie you are funny & if I was better at poetry I would respond with a rhyme... but I'm not ;)
Orchid I love seeing your name & see you visit, so happy you checked out my work Magaly posted as well as my hubby's words & driftwood sculpture on her site, thank you :)
Natasha, I always wonder when someone sees a 'sneak peek' what they think & if it ends up the way they thought... now, you've done it, you know I'm going to ask you when I've finished ;)
Pointy Pix, I swear I was at your blog while you were here... spooky or WHAT?? OK Thanks for checking out the links :) my hubbys sculpture & words were under my nude... his is...

Darla said...

What a fun and entertaining blog you have. I must admit I have to read it with an Australian accent and a voice I made up in my head for you. Love it! Love it! You are so creative.

art2cee2 said...

These are so cute. I remember the big eyed children used to be really popular in the 60's when I was a kid. My mother had one...yours are fantastic. :-)

Magaly Guerrero said...

Sweetie I'm double freaking thrilled by your um, thrill. It was such a pleasure to write. Actually, it was more like a had to write it. I saw her and she told me I had to write about her beauty. She looked so confident on that chair--curvaceous and sure--as beautiful as the one who brought her to colorful life!

And I LOVE your dollies. I'm taken by their eyes.

And (different and) I'll stalk all the Mad Tea Party goers and write about the fun!

Terrie said...

your little gals are adorable and the 2 starts look like they'll be equally lovable.

Tammie said...

they are each wonderful!
lovely that your art was honored on another blog.

Melisa said...

Amy said...

Hi hot stuff - i thought i was already here - but it seems that i stalked this post and then ran off without saying that
1. you've got me jazzed about PPF - next week i'll post, i hope
and
2. you've got me aiming for the mad tea party, but who the hell really believes that i'll be ready in time?

still - both seem fun

yesh. you do fun stuff, milady.

Mina said...

Oh Shelle, I have been by Magaly's and saw your luscious goddess on her blog. My, my, my. Aren't you just a rich well of creativity. I did not realize your hubby created the surfing goddess. Beautiful and ingenious.

I adore these sweet tiny babes and friends. I'm certain I do not have to tell you the little witch with the black cat is my personal favorite. It looks just like me and my little Herger. Yes, I am that cute except my eyes are a light bluish green. ;-)

I just noticed you posted my giveaway on your sidebar and I must say that what you said melted my heart in the sweetest (oh my gosh) kind of way. I am so honored to read those words. I want you to know you are a huge lovely sweetheart!!! Hugs to you, sweet Shelle.

Her Speak said...

your goddess is STUNNING. Happy PPF!

Heather said...

these are so fun! Love them. happy ppf, a bit late! :)
