I'm happy to say my Angel sold yesterday so I thought I'd run another one today. Of course a song I used to sing prompted this one.

Also, I am so happy my very 1st soft sculptured Angel sold too, so I did this one this morning. Hope you'll leave a comment....I'm curious.

I've been tagged twice!

I've been TAGGED TWICE.....

Yipes....I've been tagged.....TWICE this week, by krissyart and Crowing about Primitives.
I am so flattered except I'm not sure what to do about it LOL! At any rate, I will try my best to do this.OK....6 random things about myself.

1. Even though I've retired from music [was a singer with our Orchestra for 35 years, I absolutely ADORE to sing. The only thing I adore more, is painting and thank goodness, it knows no age! Hence my name Bonnesinger....my real name is Bonnie Barrasso

2. I have 2 children, a daughter and a son and my daughter has given us
3 beautiful GRANDsons. Next to my children, they are the true light of my life...to them I'm known as "Mimsy".

3. I am a very fit Grandmom....I've been an avid walker and aerobics nut for the past 20 yrs., otherwise I could have never kept the pace of my life.

4. I have alway, all my life, been obsessed with painting faces....with the focus on eyes. It doesn't matter what subject....people, animals, whatever....just love it.

5. I have a part time job at a women's Dress shop called J.Jill. I absolutely adore the girls I work with....they are truly my 2nd Family.

6. OK....wow, #6....this is easier than I thought. OK, big dark secret....I have a truly illegal sweet tooth. OMG, I just really love sweets but just can't allow myself to indulge. However, during the Holidays, I did put away my share of goodies and am now paying for it, unfortunately, so I am really cutting down. Hey, I'll be right back, gotta go grab another Brownie....I WISH!!!!, just kidding.OK, there you have it....

Now for the hard part....I've gotta tag 6 people. I haven't been at this very long, so that's not gonna be easy. Gee, there are sooooo many wonderful artist, but I don't know any of them personally, but here goes.....

1. krissyart
2. Wonders of Whimsy
3. Suzi Blu
4. Flor Larios
5. Crowing about Primitives
6. Once Upon a Blue Crow

Little Love Angel...BELIEVE

I just added this little painting to my Etsy Shop. You must believe in love; good for http://www.bonnesinger.etsy.com/the heart. I just sold her today and am so happy she's going to a good home. My little folk art girls are all very special to me.

Just added this little cutie to my Etsy Shop....This is my original design.

Last night I just couldn't sleep so I got up and got my sketch pad out. This is where it went.....she will soon be a painted canvas....something about her expression is crying out for me to put the paint to the canvas, LOL. Thanks for looking.....bonnie

Trying my hand at dollmaking.....here she is...1st attempt for Valentine's Day...MY VERY FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR. For what it's worth, you can find her in my Etsy shop. Would love to hear what you think. Thanks for looking, bonnie
The colors in her face are much more detailed and vibrant, but because of the clay heart in the scanner, it doesn't show up as clearly. Also, the clay heart is movable, so you can position it however you want.

Hey there, Well today I got industrious and finished 2 of my little "Block Paintings"....I love to just sketch and start fooling around with backgrounds and different things to do to my little paintings. These 2 will be headed for Etsy or an Art Boutique that sells my little creations.

I love to paint little Owls and when I saw this saying someplace on line it brought back my recolections of Hollywood, when I lived there and when I met the great "who loves you baby", Telly Savalas. He was a very caring person, believe it or not and just a good human being. So, anyways here are my 2 little art ventures this week. Would love your comments.

This is my first attempt at painting Freida Kahlo and I say with all humility it sold within a day on Etsy....I'm very pleased. See what you think....would love to hear from you. bonnie
