inspiration monday

muse: a sweet little something meant to inspire the artist, the thinker....or the like.

meet hazel.
i found her at a quilt fair almost five years ago....she asked me to take her home and i gladly accepted. she's crafted from heavy canvas, her arms are made from polymer clay, she has a painted body and her face is hand-stitched. a grapevine halo sits atop her soft and "free form" hair. she's stuffed with fiberfill and sports a fabulous rusty necklace with rusty dangly bells. and while this little art angel can be a little flighty at times, her kooky whimsical nature inspires me to have fun, to trust my instincts, and to follow my heart.
one thing that's always puzzled me, though, is the rusty wire hanger attached to her back....if i were to hang her on the wall, how could she possibly stretch those fabulous tea-stained gauze wings and fly?

...and you have given her the means to fly; thank you for sharing; she is darling.

And now she's flying trough the virtual realm.
Lovely piece!

she's precious...she definitely needs to be suspended from the ceiling so she can spread her wings!!!

Don't you just love it when you find something so special? What a great little find and it is so true that it is the little things that make us happy.

Oh yes, I agree. She should be suspended from the ceiling. She is just gorgeous.

Hi Lori! Hazel is really a cutie! I love her little sweetheart mouth, and the stars on her dress. Oh yes... she should be dangled from the ceiling or from under a shelf so she can float around with each little breeze! What a perfect art angel! Hugs, Paulette :o)

Oh my goodness! She literally takes my breath away! She is so adorable. She takes me right into a story book, into a whole different world. :)

She's beautiful. Can't wait to see what she triggers from your imagination. :)
