I think they're really pretty. I love marionettes. My mom used to collect marionettes of old people.. grandmas and grandpas. I don't know why. They were really REALLY scary looking but intriguing all at the same time.

My brother, on the other hand, was scared to death of them. He has a marionette phobia (if there is such a thing). Bring one near him and he'll run out of the house. It's funny too because he's almost 18 years older than me and he's STILL afraid of them.

Anyway, they're adorable :)

Marionette series

Ooo. I'll have to get one of those in the Marionette series. You've been putting up so many good paintings, I don't know what to do anymore.
Whatta ya know, great minds think alike, hehe, meaning, I have a puppet series going also. I was working on another one of them before I came downstairs and checked out the new auctions. If you'd like to see one of them click here, (http://www.geocities.com/swim83mer/mixedm2.html)It's the one titled "Entangled."
Well, there's another shameless self promotion... please let me know if you don't appreciate them, btw, I should really be getting my own account, LJ seems fun.

Re: Marionette series

Hi Kevin! Your painting is very cool - I used to be afraid of those "artists' mannekins" when I was little (my aunt had them in her studio). I think that a lot of people have a fascination/fear of puppets, hehe.

Let me know if you do get a LJ - I'll add you on my friends list!

I'm with Yanmei....Creepy but very cool! That first one, "Marionette #1", all the little veins and her eyes look dead!

Thanks! I like painting scarier things like these, but they in the past they haven't sold very well, lol. So, I just do this sort of thing once in a while just to test the waters =)
