Soulbrushes' Art In My Office; Handmade Dolls on My Office Shelves (not by me); and Beaded Leaves

I complimented Soul Brush on her stressed zebra painting, said my clients would love it, asked to copy it, and she sent me the original! My clients do love it! They see it on my office wall near the door when they leave their session. The cat below shows Zebra how to relax...I think he is listening to my Relaxation on all photos to enlarge for details These next dolls I have had since starting my private practice in 1991. They were made by hand with handmade papers. I wish I still knew who the artist was but sadly I do not. Aren't they wonderful?
And now for my beaded dyer sheet paint dyed leaves. I sit and bead on the already top sewn leaves and it is very relaxing. The beads I got off a broken necklace I picked up at a funky flea market some time ago. I bring these things home never knowing when I will use them, and then luckily I remember them and go hunting for them in all my stashes when needed. I am embroidering the veins with gold and copper metallic threads by hand as my machine balks at metallic threads and frays and breaks them.
