One of the Wild Women

Originally uploaded by Fern House Studio.
As per popular request, here's a closer look at one of the colored pencil drawings above the window of my studio. You can see a few more at my Flickr page. Unfortunately, they are a bit too big for my scanner, and I don't have a digital camera (can you believe it!?-- also no cell phone--I'm crazy enough without that crap). Anyway, here's a taste and I'll try to get my hands on my boyfriend's digital camera to get some more shots in the future.

I've been saving these Ladies...I've got quite a few of them. I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do with them-- probably I'll end up incorporating them into some other creative project, though they are quite lovely on their own. Another thought I had was to dry mount them on foamcore and frame them somehow. They have sort of a paper doll feel. Any more ideas?

I was sure they are drawn on the wall! Are they just drawn with pencil on paper?

I think I would go with your idea of mounting them on foam core, then you can use them for almost anything - Like, put a strip of cork between 2 of them and use as a cork board! or make a mobile out of them and hang it from the ceiling, for kinetic inspiration..

Well, I hope you're not too disappointed they weren't drawn right on the wall. That's a good idea, though.

They are fantastic!!! So bold and colorful. Each one looks like she holds some kind of magical power!

Oh--that's a good way to put it--- I think they do have magical powers. Each is very unique--some have tails of flowers, some have spirals in their bellies--they are very much from my subconcious and maybe from a part of me that is stronger than what I beleive and show about myself every day.
