IN MEMORY OF JOANNA PIEROTTI OF MOSS HILL STUDIO

YES, DEAR KINDRED SPIRIT ARTISTS AND FRIENDS.  ONE OF OUR MOST BELOVED MIXED MEDIA ARTISTS HAS PASSED AWAY THIS LAST WEEK FROM HER FIGHT WITH CANCER.

JOANNA PIEROTTI
I was first aware of JoAnnA Pierotti's Moss Hill Studio, when I came across one of her online workshops for her Bella Art Doll Workshop in the fall of 2007.  I then, promptly misplaced the link to the site, and her blog name, and couldn't find her for another year, at which time I did enroll in that particular class in the fall of 2008. Joanna was the one who inspired me to continue with other mixed media online workshops from various artists.  Her professional business name was spelled JoAnnA.  She really appreciated it when people would use the capital letters for her name in that format.

 She and her husband Ron had lived in Volcano, California and because of health problems for both she and her husband, as he had had ongoing surgeries for a brain tumor, Joanna's art work was what was sustaining their income. At that time, in 2008, Joanna was in remission from breast cancer, but recently, in the last six months of her life she had a blood test revealing she had stage 5 cancer in many areas of her body, and was receiving chemo and radiation treatments. A few years ago they had moved to Arizona near her husband Ron's brother and sister-in-law.  Ron is in good hands but the loss of Joanna will be difficult to bear. May God comfort their hearts at this time. 



THIS IS THE BELLA ART DOLL I MADE IN HER ONLINE CLASS.


THIS IS THE FRONT VIEW OF THE MIXED MEDIA DOLL. THIS WORKSHOP HAS NOT BEEN AVAILABLE FOR A FEW YEARS.  THE BASE WAS A WOODEN BLOCK WHICH WAS EMBELLISHED WITH BROKEN CHINTZ CHINA PIECES GLUED ON WITH E-6000. A LONG NAIL WAS NAILED FROM UNDERNEATH THE CENTER OF THE BLOCK OF WOOD AND A VINTAGE SPINDLE WAS PLACED OVER THE NAIL AND WAS GLUED TO THE TOP OF THE BASE. THEN THE SPOOL WHICH WAS PREVIOUSLY WRAPPED WITH COTTON THREAD, WAS PAINTED WITH ACRYLIC PAINT, AND A MADAME ALEXANDER VINTAGE DOLLY HEAD WAS GLUED TO THE TOP OF THE SPOOL.  FROM THERE THE FACE WAS PAINTED, THE EYELIDS GLUED OPEN AND THE ENTIRE FACE WAS PAINTED FLESH COLOR.  THEN THE EYES WERE REPAINTED ONTO THE FACE, A LIGHT PAINTING OF PINK WAS PAINTED ON THE CHEEKS FOR BLUSH, AND TINY ROSES WERE PAINTED UPON THE FOREHEAD.  YARN WAS GLUED ONTO THE HEAD WHERE THE HAIR HAD BEEN PREVIOUSLY REMOVED. THE YARN HAIR (I USED EYELASH YARN) AND VINTAGE FLOCKED TINY FLOWERS WERE GLUED ONTO THE HAIR.  I USED A TINY CROCHETED NUT CUP AND CUT OFF THE HANDLE WHICH I GLUED AROUND THE NECK OF THE DOLL, AND THE 'CUP' WAS USED AS A BONNET.  I ADDED OTHER CROCHETED EMBELLISHMENTS FOR THE FRONT AND BACK OF THE DOLL AND ADDED A HUGE SUNFLOWER BUTTON ON THE BACK SIDE.  THE FACE WAS GLAZED WITH DECO ART GLOSS GLAZE.


FOR THE BACK SIDE OF THE DOLL I ALSO USED A VINTAGE CROCHETED DOILY WHICH I HAD FIRST SATURATED IN AQUA BLUE ACRYLIC PAINT (AND THE HAT TOO) AND THEN SQUEEZED OUT THE EXCESS AND LET THOSE PIECES DRY AND THEN GLUED THEM ONTO THE PIECE.  I DID USE A VINTAGE CROCHETED DAISY AND GLUED A METAL BUTTON TO THE BACK OF THE DOLL.
THIS IS THE SWEET ANGEL MIXED MEDIA PIECE I WAS ABLE TO ACQUIRE FROM JOANNA.  HER CREATIONS ARE TIMELESS AND BEAUTIFUL.






AND HERE IS ONE OF JOANNA'S GLORIOUS (SWOON!) NECKLACES WHICH I WILL CHERISH AND WEAR IN MEMORY OF HER WONDERFUL LIFE FULL OF CREATIVITY.


AND ONE OF JOANNA'S BEAUTIFULLY CREATED ENCAUSTIC BOTTLES.  I WILL CHERISH THIS SWEET CREATION SHE MADE.  I WAS UNABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE WORKSHOP FOR THIS CLASS.

SHE IS NOW AT REST AND AT PEACE IN HEAVEN WITH OTHER KINDRED SPIRIT SOULS. 

I FEEL VERY BLESSED TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BE TAUGHT ONLINE BY ONE OF THE MOST SELF-SACRIFICING MIXED MEDIA ARTISTS.

MAY JOANNA'S LOVED ONES FIND COMFORT AT THIS TIME OF THEIR LOSS.

TO VIEW JOANNA'S TIMELESS CREATIONS GO TO YAHOO (OR ANOTHER SEARCH) AND TYPE IN: MOSS HILL STUDIO DOLL IMAGES

LET'S TALK ABOUT FASHION....

FINALLY...
I AM ABLE TO SIT DOWN FOR A DECENT POST!

WINTER HAS BEEN VERY BUSY WITH LIFE AND THE FLU GOT HOLD OF ME AND IT WASN'T FUN.  BUT I AM FINALLY FEELING BETTER.  THANK GOD!

ANYWAY...

I AM GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT A VERY DEAR FRIEND OF MINE, I WILL CALL HER MISS DELLA ROSSA, WITHOUT DIVULGING HER PRIVATE LIFE.

MISS DELLA ROSSA WAS A VOGUE MODEL, IN NEW YORK BACK IN THE DAY.  SHE WAS VERY GLAMOROUS AND BEAUTIFUL.  SHE COULD HAVE BECOME AS WELL KNOWN AS MARILYN MONROE.

BUT SHE DECIDED NOT TO STAY IN THE MODELING PROFESSION AS THERE WERE SOME 'QUESTIONABLE' LIFESTYLES SHE JUST DIDN'T WANT TO BECOME A PART OF, SO SHE EVENTUALLY WENT ON TO BECOME A VERY SUCCESSFUL DRESS DESIGNER IN HER OWN STORE IN THE GARMENT DISTRICT OF LOS ANGELES IN THE 1960'S.  BELOW...A MODEL SHOWS OFF MISS DELLA ROSSA'S 'BRA DRESS' IN THE LATE 1960'S.

MISS DELLA ROSSA WAS THE PREMIERE DESIGNER OF THE 'BRA DRESS' AND WITHIN WEEKS, PARIS, FRANCE; AND LONDON, ENGLAND, WERE MAKING 'KNOCK-OFFS' OF HER DESIGN.  YES THE FASHION INDUSTRY HAS NO QUALMS ABOUT 'STEALING' IDEAS AND DESIGNS FROM OTHER DESIGNERS.
MISS DELLA ROSSA HAD A MILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS AT THE TIME, WHICH WAS QUITE A LOT OF MONEY DURING THAT ERA.  HER HUSBAND UP AND LEFT HER FOR A MISTRESS AND TOOK ALL OF THE MONEY FROM THE BANK ACCOUNT.  MISS DELLA ROSSA WORKED HER FINGERS TO THE BONE EXISTING ON COFFEE AND MEAGER FARE WHILE SHE BUILT THE BUSINESS BACK UP AGAIN. MISS DELLA ROSSA COULD WRITE A BOOK ABOUT HER LIFE, AS IT WAS QUITE AMAZING. 'THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A FASHION DESIGNER' I THINK SHE COULD CALL IT!

YOU CAN SEE THAT MISS DELLA ROSSA'S 'BRA DRESS' HAS SURPASSED ITS AGELESSNESS BY APPEARING CURRENTLY IN CLOTHING STORES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.  I WAS JUST IN KHOLS AND THERE IT WAS, THE 'BRA DRESS' STILL VERY MUCH IN FASHION.  BUT DO YOU THINK MISS DELLA ROSSA IS GETTING ANY ROYALTIES FOR HER ORIGINAL DESIGN? NOPE! SAD TO THINK SHE COULD HAVE BEEN A BILLIONAIRE AT THIS POINT IN TIME IF ALL THINGS WERE FAIR IN DEATH AND TAXES!

HER MOST HILARIOUS PHRASE, BORROWED FROM SOMEONE ELSE, IS 'OLD AGE IS NOT FOR SISSIES!'

LOS ANGELES - ONE OF THE FASHION CAPITALS OF THE WORLD.  WHILE YOU ARE AT IT, YOU MAY BE INTERESTED IN VIEWING AN UP AND COMING FASHION SITE: THE DRESLYN.COM     ONE OF MY OTHER DEAR FRIENDS IS WORKING FOR THIS HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL FASHION COMPANY AS IT WAS INITIALLY LAUNCHED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. SHE IS IN ADVERTISING FOR THE COMPANY, HER NAME IS MISS LABER. (PHOTO WAS TAKEN BY ME)



MISS DELLA ROSSA LOVES TO GARDEN, SHE HAS BEAUTIFUL ROSES SHE TENDS TO AS THOUGH THEY WERE HER OWN CHILDREN.  SHE ADORES CATS, AND ALWAYS HAS SOME TO KEEP HER COMPANY.  SHE IS ONE OF THE MOST MELLOW KINDRED ARTISTIC LOVELY PERSON'S I HAVE EVER HAD THE WONDERFUL ENJOYMENT IN LIFE OF HAVING AS A VERY DEAR FRIEND.  


HERE IS A RECENT PHOTO OF MISS DELLA ROSSA.  SHE ADORES HATS AND HAS QUITE AN EXTENSIVE HAT COLLECTION.  (I KNOW THE PIXELS IN THE PHOTO AREN'T THE BEST).

AS TIME WENT BY, SHE AGAIN WENT TO CHICAGO WITH ANOTHER DESIGN LINE OF HERS, IN WHICH SHE USED THE STRIPPED TICKING FABRIC TO MAKE MEN'S SHIRTS AND WOMENS SHIFT-STYLE DRESSES.  SHE WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL IN THAT LINE OF CLOTHING TOO, AND OF COURSE EVERYWHERE ONE BEGAN SEEING THE STRIPPED TICKING FABRIC BECOMING VERY POPULAR AND IT STILL IS A MAINSTAY OF FRENCH DESIGN INCLUDING BEDDING AND PILLOWS, AND ALSO CLOTHING.

JUST SOME INTERESTING FASHION FACTS FROM A VERY DEAR FRIEND OF MINE WHOM I WAS ABLE TO VISIT A FEW MONTHS AGO WHEN I WENT DOWN TO SEE MISS DELLA ROSSA IN HER MARVELOUSLY DECORATED HOME WHERE HER STUDIO HAS WALLS DECORATED WITH HER VINTAGE DESIGNS TAKEN FROM FASHION MAGAZINES OF THE 1960'S.

HERE IS ANOTHER VIEW OF THE 'BRA DRESS'.  MISS DELLA ROSSA USED UP-SCALE FABRICS AS YOU CAN SEE THIS IS WOOL WITH A WHITE CREPE TOP.  VERY, VERY CHIC!

A TRIP TO DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES ART DISTRICT...ALICE IN WONDERLAND MURALS

SINCE MY MIDDLE SON IS GOING TO COLLEGE IN LOS ANGLES, WE GET TO VISIT THE AREA ABOUT EVERY TWO MONTHS.

I had been eyeing the artwork on some of the buildings surrounding the Art's District of Los Angeles, which happens to be only a few blocks from where my son is going to the top architect school in the world.

So, we drove there and took photos.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

LET US BEGIN WITH THE MAD HATTER

AND THE RED QUEEN

A VERY FREAKY WHITE RABBIT BUT HE DOES HAVE HIS POCKET WATCH!



THE CHESHIRE CAT, NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT!


THE HOOKA, SMOKING, CATERPILLAR


THE MARCH HARE (ABOVE THE CATERPILLAR)
TWEEDLEDEE AND TWEEDLEDUM (YUP! THAT'S HOW THEY'RE SPELLED!)


THE JABBERWOCKY


ONE OF THE WALLS DEVOTED TO WONDERLAND, WITH A RED HEART CARD ON THE LEFT SIDE.


AND HERE IS QUITE A VOULUPTIOUS ALICE, WANDERING HER WAY THROUGH THE STREETS OF L.A.

PART OF ONE WALL OF THE MURAL WITH MUSHROOMS AND THE DODO BIRD INCLUDED.


ONE WHOLE WALL AT A DISTANCE.


I hope you have enjoyed this tour of what goes on in the Los Angeles' Art's District.
'Alice in Wonderland' has been a favorite book of mine since I was a child, which is a long time ago.

I have no less than eleven Alice related books in my personal library, including 'The Annotated Alice' and also, a vintage stage play booklet with the script and parts.

Until next time, when we meet again...who knows where I shall take you next time!

MY PROFESSIONAL ARTIST/ILLUSTRATOR/CHILDREN'S BOOK AUTHOR, BROTHER, TROY HOWELL HAS CHANGED HIS WEBSITE...PLEASE COME TAKE A LOOK

IT IS WITH DELIGHT I SHARE MY BROTHER TROY HOWELL'S WEBSITE!

PLEASE CLICK ON THE ILLUSTRATION ON MY RIGHT SIDE BAR OF THE DRAGON FOR THE LINK TO TROY HOWELL'S WEBSITE.  THIS PARTICULAR ILLUSTRATION IS ON THE JACKET COVER OF 'THE DRAGON OF CRIPPLE CREEK, OF WHOM TROY HOWELL IS THE AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR.  THE BOOK IS AVAILABLE ON AMAZON BOOKS.COM

IF YOU ARE SEEKING YOUNG ADULT ADVENTURE 'THE DRAGON OF CRIPPLE CREEK' IS A TALL TALE ABOUT A YOUNG GIRL NAMED KAT AND A DRAGON NAMED YE, WHO IS FOUND IN A DEEP GOLD MINE IN THE MOLLY KATHLEEN MINE, IN CRIPPLE CREEK, COLORADO, WHICH BY THE WAY IS A REAL, WORKING GOLD MINE WHICH HOSTS PUBLIC TOURS.  THE SECRET LIES IN THE MINES BELOW!!! BEWARE!!! HIGH ADVENTURE!!!  

Troy Howell has been drawing since he was two and a half years old, when he used a red crayon and drew a small, round, railroad track upon our parents aqua green carpeting.  It's been a lifetime of drawing since that amazing day when our parents realized his talent!

Troy Howell is the American Illustrator for all of the jacket covers for the 'Redwall' children's book series by Brian Jacques of England.  You can view more of the illustrations from those books on Troy's website, under the heading of 'Illustrations'.   


THE FIRST AMERICAN BOOK JACKET IN THE SERIES ILLUSTRATED BY TROY HOWELL.
 I will add this note, as there was another illustrator who did the internal black and white illustrations whose name does appear inside the book.  My brother's name only appears on the jacket covers themselves, not on the internal ISBN number catalog number as only the illustrator who did the internal illustrations was listed instead.  Thus is the way of the marketing of published books. You don't always get your name recognized, except Mary GrandPre sure did when she illustrated the American Jacket covers for the Harry Potter books!  Life is not always fair in the art industry.  That is the difference between some publishing companies.  Some give royalties and some don't. 


HERE IS ANOTHER EXCEPTIONAL ILLUSTRATION TROY DID FOR 'CRICKET' MAGAZINE SEVERAL YEARS AGO.  THIS COVER WRAPPED AROUND THE ENTIRE CHILDREN'S MAGAZINE COVER.


TO SEE MORE OF TROY HOWELL'S EXCEPTIONAL ARTWORK PLEASE VIEW HIS WEBSITE WHICH ALSO HAS A LINK TO HIS BLOG.

TROY HOWELL ALSO IS THE AUTHOR OF THE CHILDREN'S CLASSIC BOOK  'THE DRAGON OF CRIPPLE CREEK' PUBLISHED BY AMULET BOOKS.  THE BOOK IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE ON AMAZON BOOKS.


THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN'S BOOK AUTHORS AND CHILDREN'S BOOK ILLUSTRATORS.

MANY OF TROY'S ILLUSTRATED BOOKS CAN BE FOUND ON AMAZON BOOKS.COM

WELL, MY DEARS, TIME FLIES DOESN'T IT? HERE ARE PHOTOS OF ATC'S AND A MIXED MEDIA DOLL ASSEMBLAGE.

I HAVE BEEN CREATING ATC'S FOR A SWAP WITH A FRIEND, AND ALSO A MIXED MEDIA DOLL ASSEMBLAGE SWAP WITH ANOTHER FRIEND.

I HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED THE THREE ATC'S FROM MY FRIEND, AND MAILED HERS OFF AND SHE RECEIVED HERS TOO.

HERE IS ONE OF THE THREE ATC'S I RECEIVED FROM MY FRIEND JUDY.  I ADORE IT!


SORRY THIS IS A LITTLE BIT BLURRED FROM MY CAMERA.  WE CHOSE THE THEME OF 'FOLK ART PRIMITIVE' AND THE ATC'S  WE PAINTED WERE BOTH 'FIRSTS' FOR BOTH OF US.

HERE ARE THE THREE ATC'S MY FRIEND SENT TO ME.  I ADORE THE GIRL WITH HER KITTY.  PLEASE CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR A LARGER VIEW.
HERE ARE ALL THREE OF MINE WHICH WERE SENT TO JUDY.  MORE INDIVIDUAL PHOTOS FOLLOW THIS ONE.

HERE IS ONE OF THREE ATC'S I SENT TO MY FRIEND.  I TRIED FOR A PRIMITIVE GRUNGY STYLE.  I THINK SHE LOOKS LIKE A QUEEN, SO I USED ALPHABET STAMPS ON THE REVERSE SIDE IN BLACK INK TO PRINT THE TITLE OF 'QUEEN'.
I CONTINUED WITH THE PRIMITIVE GRUNGY STYLE AND NAMED THIS ONE 'SHEEP' IN BLACK INK ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE ATC.
AND A BARN.  ALL WERE DRAWN AND PAINTED FREE HAND, OUR OWN IDEAS.




AND I JUST NOTICED THAT I NOW HAVE 300 FOLLOWERS! YAY!
I WILL BE HAVING A GIVEAWAY VERY SOON! PLEASE STAY TUNED.












AND NOW FOR THE FINALE' THE MIXED MEDIA ASSEMBLAGE I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON FOR THREE MONTHS AT HALF HOUR INTERVALS OFF AND ON, FOR ANOTHER YEAR ROUND ORNAMENT SWAP. SHE HAS A BOUFONT HAIR DO, WHICH IS ACTUALLY WOOL ROVING SCULPTURED AND PAINTED WHITE WITH GOLD ACCENTS.  IF YOU VIEW AN OLDER POST OF MINE YOU WILL SEE WHAT WENT INTO THE DOLL WITH THE RAW MATERIALS.  I SEALED THE DOLL WITH KRYLON MATTE FINISH. SHE WILL BE WINGING HER WAY TO DEBI VERY SOON!
HERE IS A CLOSE-UP OF MARIE ANTOINETTE'S FACE. 

HERE IS THE BACKSIDE OF MARIE ANTOINETTE WITH HER HANGER.   THIS WAS NOT THE ENTIRELY FINISHED DOLL AS I PAINTED OVER THE SPLOTCHY BLUE AND PURPLE ON THE SPOOL SO IT WAS ONE SOLID AQUA COLOR.  

Thank you for viewing and remember you can click on each photo for a larger view.
