Beautiful Miss Karen

Another little Art Buddy flew in the door the other day and I wanted to share her with you. If you've been reading my blog for any time, you already know about my Art Buddies Invitational. If you don't know what I'm talking about and you're a little bit curious, please click right HERE and you'll be taken to the original post. It's been a fun project seeing how all of the invited artists have dolled up their naked wooden forms. This time around I get to introduce you to a long-time friend, Karen. I used to work with Karen at Willamette University (that was many many moons ago), then Karen took my Artist's Way Creative Cluster (that was also many moons ago). Through the Artist's Way and a natural kinship, we've stayed in touch.

When I asked Karen what she named her Art Buddy, here is how she replied:

I didn't name her, but she's me really. Or who I want to be: she has diamonds on the souls of her feet, she's following her heart, in a summer hat. So, yeah, she is who I am working toward being!

Thank you, Karen. You truly are beautiful inside and out.
