Because there is a lot of clouds in my life as of late, and there is a species of fairy for everything in the world, I have seen these clouds as being little fairies.
When I was given this little dream of Cloud Fairies, most certainly by my faerie doll muse, it had been rainy season and continued to rain for weeks as happens in this central region of the US in early spring.
My husband had just passed, and I was trying to make sense of my clouded mind and life. And that’s what I do. I dive deeply into art when I need help to see forward. And I love cloud watching…
So came the Cloud Pixies!
Clouds can be sweet and silent, thunderous, and electric, and even colorful and rainbow. The options are endless.
Because I teach techniques, in this class there will be several options for learning many techniques. 2 hands options. 3 Face drawing techniques on flat heads. Variations on costuming as well as coloring the doll/costume with inks and paint.
Thank you, from me and the little clouds. Love, Paula Casey McGee – your official faerie doll mother.
