Peculiar Paige


After I created "Creepy Crawley Clare" some time ago, I got an idea to have girls posing with all sorts of gruesome beasties.....

Clare walked into the woods they say,
And didn’t come out for 21 days.

Her complexion had changed
From peach to gray.
Her hair was tangled and smelled of decay.

She whispered to spiders and giggled with slugs
Her entire body was crawling with bugs.

Other folks might’ve thought her deranged,
But the town already considered her strange

Sounded like a perfectly easy plan....but as I started thinking about each girl...their stories started unfolding.  These began to include strange tendencies and twisted endings....odd behavior and disturbing details...

Paige is the scrapped canvas I began and covered up last week.  I was working on a 5 x 7 inch canvas last week and just couldn't fit in everything I was envisioning.  Here she is in a larger 8 x 10 format.

...and I am so much happier with the outcome :)
Hope you enjoy her, too.

The peculiar habit of Paige is
locking things up in cages.
Her creatures are cherished,
even after they've perished.
Her parents swear it's just one of those phases.
 
 
I have 2 other poems written out for 2 other odd personalities :)
 
 
Until those take form, Clare and Paige are in the shop waiting for a brave soul to adopt them ;P
 
Hope you are having a wonderful week!  Maggie starts 2 whole weeks of Spring Break next week....so we'll see how much creating I actually get done....haha!
 
All my eerie best,
CAm

I remember "Creepy Crawley Clare" and I still like her very much. But, my the universe, I'm in LOVE with "Peculiar Page." I think she would enjoy Witches in Fiction 2013... to the Bone!

oooh!!! i don't usually go for the creepy stuff but I have to admit I like the girl with the birdcage!!!
It kind of makes a statement (to me) about the use of birds and birdcages in art these days...LOL!!!
I have a love/hate feeling about it as I even use birds in my stuff. But sometimes I just get a little sick of seeing them so this is GREAT:))))
Thanks for your KIND comments on my blog, you're so sweet!
