Waking Dream (Exquisite Corpse I) by 

Original is .07 Mechanical Pencil & Graphite on 8.5×11 copier paper


This is my first Exquisite Corpse with Barbara Glatzeder I started this piece by creating the bottom half, then I covered all but an inch strip and then mailed it to her to complete.

This is what I sent Barbara:

I absolutely adore the way this turned out! Barbara said she was inspied by some of my wedding photos! See them HERE This is such a fun project! I will be doing more of these with more artists in 2010. Bubblemail me if you’re interrested!

    I commented on her part now time for yours. :) Love those eyes…very fairy babydoll eyes to me…and the glossyness look to them and her lips. Adoring those mismatched earrings. And the wee fairys sitting on them..very good andgel/bad angel upon one’s shoulders. And the tiny mouse puts me in mind of Anitas work. ;) Wonderful shading too. Love this.

  • Thank you thank you! Eyes are one of my favorite things to draw…I think I might have forgotten how much! LOL I know what you mean about Anita and the mouse. :) I wanted to do good critters on one side and bad critters on the other….I was trying to decide what to put on the good side and all I could think of were Anita’s mice popping out! So, yes, a wee tribute to Anita there. :) BTW – the little evil gnome guy, was originally a hedgehog, but it turned out looking like a fuzzy monkey, so I cahnged him! LMAO! I was going for the whole conscience thing….the fairy being the good voice and the demon being the naughty one….I just love how Barbara finished it….ties the whole thing together. It’s like both voices are needed to make the whole…the divine self!

    :-) I’m so glad you mentioned that about both sides making up the whole … that’s the feeling I had when I uncovered it, too. And am I glad I put a couple of flames around her head, too! :-))) Thank you so much, this was such good fun xxx Don’t quite understand why it’s not for sale on your side too? I think it should be!

  • I keep seeing more and more within this everytime I look! This whole exquisite corpse thing just really blows my mind the way the pieces fit! This was definitely a blast to do! Now….if I can just make a little bit of time to get your done! :) Ok, it’s for sale here now! I didn’t even try to put it for sale because I uploaded it from my work computer and thought the format was too small. I was wrong. LOL Thanks a million!

    I Loooooooove it- wow. All those little critters and the angel/devil in her earrings, I just LOVE that :)))) The fairy coming through her head is like opening up her crown chakra and bringing calm, because I think she’s quite a mischeivious impette LOL These are soooooooo cool !! xx

  • Thank you thank you my dear! :) Aren’t these a blast?! :) Did you see the little Anita mousey tribute?! LOL I like your take on it…that very well could be as I’m sure the little impette listens to the demon in her earring much more frequently than to the sweet little faerie. ;)

    With my crazy schedule I simply couldn’t fit it in sadly but I’m loving watching what’s happening with others. It’s totally awesome

  • I completely understand….I’ve put off any new things until well after the 1st of the year. I really need to get back to a few paintings I have that are unfinished….sad…
