Hi, My name is Helen Grossman. I like to paint, read books, and learning a new forms of art and techniques. I love to learn and experiment with different medias and surfaces, like clay, paper, beads, gourds,it is always something new here to learn and grow. When I am feeling burn out I am reading books or taking my brushes and paint. Back in Ukraine I learned a decorative folk art style of painting called Petrikivka named after village it was born. You can see some of my work including painting at my picturetrail site: Thank you for stopping by and if you have a moment, I would love to hear your feedback. Thanks again, Helen

Sitting pretty

She made from "Frowning Francis" pattern. It is muslin doll that was gessoed and then painted. I like the head design of this kitty. It has a few layers giving more dimention to the head. Similar to trapunto method but a bit different. And she is sitting on little taffeta from free tutorial that Sherry Goshon gave us. Thanks a lot for that!
I posted some pictures of the doll in progress. When I loaded pictures from camera into computer, I realized that Kitty is missing whiskers.
Off to take some new pictures :)
