Gypsy nobody's child by Sleetwealth Gypsy nobody's child by Sleetwealth
Gypsy is a 4&1/2 " bust polychromed with oil paint ,pastels and ink. Her hair is slate grey fur( naturaly shed) The nitch on her chest contains a picture of a screaming monkey and a rough crystal. Both are behind a rectangle glass lense and can be removed.

Gypsy is a rootless urchin ,unwanted but, free. She cannot comprehend love or comfort or rules. She is a little thief and beggar... a tummble weed.

own her before Im too famous for you to afford.... [link]

There is something about your work which verges upon redemptive; she tells a real story and she offers her hurt and her vulnerably with such 'presence' and such force that she takes all rational and defensive thoughts away...she helps you to fall at her feet and surrender all wrongs...

There is story in my work and symbol that resonate for me.Thats all I look for.

(earthiness)filth ,decay,hunger,lonliness and vunerabilty. relieved by a veil like dream realm, inner light,strength,beauty, spiritual powers.

If ever i have seen a sculpture that trascends its medium, and expresses sadness in the eyes...you are the one who has done it.

I have completely fallen in love with her!!!!!
She is sooooo alive... I mean she has to be..
she looks like she is breathing, VERY realistic
features and her expression is SO REAL!!!!!

May I say that even though I cannot afford her,
I feel that her price is very low!
She is a breathtaking piece of art!!!

I am trying to make some of my work more acessable to own. Im realy not sure how to price now that I dont have the auction format! Its really hard.

Maybe later when Im less strapped myself we can work out a payment plan for something.

The hair is really wonderful. She has the face of a child, but the greying hair of someone who has seem too much for her age.

Thanks. me too the best thing is if I paint them it doenst matter if I have lint or moons! I dont know if you can afford or not ,but she is on etsy for $150.
maybe Amulet will be for you:) But she needs a shadow box that will fit her.

VanEssies Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2009
I'm talking to my love right now heheheh.
It's almost my birthday so he must buy me a present hahahaha.
Yes to own Amulet is my dream, my big dream.
I don't have to tell you that.

Oh that's a dream also, not to worry about lint and moonies.
BTW I think you fit in perfectly with the artists of Strychnin.
I really hope to see your art there soon.

That would be nice. he could make two women happy:D
Will see what she is done if you still like her. Im crazy with some of my girls. She has dreadlocks now,but with partly bald head! Very sad and creepy too. Poor thing!
Ill have to beat on Strychnin 's door again though someone says its not as nice inside as youd think. I dont know who else shows dark dolls!

Well the clay is beautiful when its flawless,but I can never keep it completly nice. my husband says probably casue I take the sculpture with me to the doctor and in bed and while cooking super and while surfing! haha I dont do that all the time though he just teases me. I

The world of artists isn't nice.
Too many venom!
Artist are almost all very sensitive people what can cause a lot of jalousie(I know I am too sensitive but luckily I'm also love to care about others so no jalousie on my part).

I see that there's a growing interest in dark art so there must be more gallery who wanna show your gorgeous art.
In the upcoming newsletter from the oda (also read by collectors)I mentioned you (twice)hehehe.
They asked me who is/are my example(s)/ influence I named you, Connie, Millie, Virginie and Jessica J.
In an other topic they asked to show a picture from what gives me inspiration or keeps me going on and improve, I gave them a collage with pics from you and the other girls mentioned earlier.

Maybe a collector who doen't know you yet (is there any?)read it, you'll never know.

Yes I know. It gets really bad in some groups.Thats why I dont post in doll groups except ADO .

Connie is influenced by me in some of her early works.So, I can see why she woudl be one too. Alot of people liked only sweet fairies a few years ago. Now everybody seems to like it.I see alot of dark sites,but still dont know about galleries that are quality.

There are alot of collectors that dont know me. Only some doll artists at ebay would recognize me I think. I bet alot of them didnt know who is that. Crazy Essie made up an artist!

You sell yourself way too short Sweetie.
Here in Europe you are one of the big names.
I also know many American, Canadian and aussie's who are fan of your work.
Have you already tried to get your work in the Moonlight Art Magazine?

Artist, galleries, & other people who aspire to be inspired. Want to be in our magazine? Show us why that's you.

...for mailing list and submissions...
e mail: christophermoonlight@gmail.com
Art Submission Guidelines:
1 Please send us links that go directly to your artwork. E mails with attachments will be trashed, unless you've made prior arrangments with us.
2 Tell us a little about yourself. You must be taking an active part in the world of art for us to publish you, so if you're showing in galleries, or being published somewhere, tell us about it. We don't have time to go though your entire website looking for your bio. We're not trying to be cranky here. That's just the way it is.
3 Rude and pushy artists will be blocked. You can send us as many e mails as you want. We love to stay updated on what you're doing, but we aren't going to keep checking back to your website for updates, no matter how great an artist you are, and we can't show up to everyone's shows, every day of the week. It's okay to think your great, but it's not okay to think your so great that we'll jump at your command. Also, if we try (or any other pro artist for that matter) to give you tips on how you might improve your work, that means we do like your art, and want to see you do well. Don't get touchy about it. Touchy closes doors. You'll do well to keep that in mind.
4 Be patient. I know this is very much like 3 but, we work on about 3 issues at a time. If we like you, or even if we've agreed to put you in one of our issues, give us the time we need to do things up right.
5 Read the magazine! We're getting a lot of submissions that have nothing to do with what we do. It's only a waste of your own time and ours.
6 Do not send us original artwork. I don't know how you'd get our address, but whatever it is, we ain't sending it back.
7 We don't do reviews. Why? Because we're all about being a positive force in the world of art. Let some other art snobs judge your work. Then tell them where they can stick it. 8 Now we're just checking to see if you read all of the other guidelines through, but really... just use your common sense. Do good art and believe in what you do, and the world will love you.
