Felted Totoro

by Meredith 14. December 2014 08:54

Friends of mine experienced a house fire and lost all of their holiday ornaments and have asked for replacements as gifts this year. My Neighbor Totoro is one of their favorite movies so these forest spirits seem like a perfect gift. They are made out of needle felted wool. Some of the wool is even dyed by me.

The Snowmen

by Meredith 12. December 2014 20:57

Latest painting. Not bad given how dark the room was. I had to fix the birds a bit at home because the lighting was so poor that I felt like I was painting in the dark. They are still crappy little birds, but whateva', overall the painting did what I wanted it to do. At first glance it is a rather sweet winter scene with birds and snow. That is, until you notice the sinister smiles of the snowmen.

Don’t Blink

The original painting had a wolf howling at the moon. The modification of a Weeping Angel was obvious.

“Fascinating race, the Weeping Angels. The only psychopaths in the universe to kill you nicely. No mess, no fuss, they just zap you into the past and let you live to death. The rest of your life used up and blown away in the blink of an eye. You die in the past, and in the present they consume the energy of all the days you might have had, all your stolen moments. They're creatures of the abstract. They live off potential energy.” – The Doctor

Time Lord Still Life

While at the event I was asked "What is that?"
I replied, "A sonic screwdriver."
"A what?"
"A sonic screwdriver. It's from Dr. Who."
"Yes. Doctor Who."
True story.

I went to a painting event again last night. Added my own spin to the painting but had to finish up some things at home because they didn't have small brushes. Can you find the Dr Who reference? 

Adding dots and patterns was my attempt at playing around with a style of folk art I had seen

Put a Tardis On It

It's bigger inside the painting.

Went to one of those hosted painting events where they supply paint, canvas and instructions. It was seriously fun to kick back and follow along! The event was hosted at a restaurant/bar so we were able to get drinks and snacks while we painted. Good times.

About Meredith Cook

Welcome to my repository of creative expression. I'm not a happy camper unless I am making something and over the years I have dabbled in quite a few different kinds of art projects. Some projects come from taking art classes, others are completely hobby driven, and projects like home decor come from a need to customize an item and make it better or unique. The overall theme behind what I do is to learn how to manipulate objects and practice what I know about visual aesthetic and good design. Oh yeah, and to have fun.
