It’s been wild these past two weeks, two art conferences in two cities, in two different states, but that’s what had to happen to attend classes with three teachers I really admire.
Tory Brokenshire from Salem, OR is a renaissance woman who can do it all, but I am most taken with her assemblages, specifically her Santos dolls. I have quite a few of her pieces listed in my Pinterest Assemblage board. When I saw that she was teaching three classes at Art and Soul in Portland, I had to go, even though it was on the heels of another conference. I missed her Santos class at the final Artfest, but I wasn’t about to miss another one.
Meet Teresa, she thinks she is a great cook, but really, all she wants to do is look pretty and be admired for her accessories.
Just to make Teresa happy, here is a close up of her shoes. Any guesses as to what they were?
And here is the Santos Doll I bought from Tory who is now sitting and playing nicely with her new friends. I am thrilled to have her.
Here’s a close up of Tory’s doll. Isn’t she just delightful?
