A new sculpt

I have been working on a new project. The next project in the series with Marilyn is a Dragon.Well I am behind as this class is ending and the next project begins next week so I am trying to catch up. The class project is more of a chinese style one however I have been struggling with mine since I cut the gourds. Then i realized it was because it was too big and too fat! Also we are to learn to do lyrical shapes and mine did not come out really lyrical but I am happy with the shape.

So i have decided to follow my muse with this one. So here is Dragon Man. Well actually not sure if he is a dragon or what but he is definitely a mythical creature. This is definitely out of the box for me but so much fun in not thinking and just creating with my unconcius brain as one of teh students said. I did try to control one part of my creating today and it looked horrible so took that part off. So this is a learning exercise in this piece.

I was hoping to have him hang from the ceiling but he is heavy from the apoxie.Will need to get some real heavy line if I decide to go that route.

Gift from Canada!

I got a surprise gift from my friend Linda in Canada. The customs label said a stuffed rabbit and a brass stand and I was like why do people always send me stuffed animals. Well imagine my surprise when i opened it up and found these wonderful gifts! Leave it her to find a Grasshoppa,lol and add a karate jacket no less. She also made a home made card and sent me a brass grasshoppa too!

These now reside atop of my TV and the stuffed grasshoppa will now be my traveling one when I do any shows. inny partw as when i was at an egg show I had seen a lady ahd who had some nice ones on her table and had nothing to do with her name but she wouldn't part with them. Well now I have something special that will go with my logo for my eventual website.

Thank you Linda from Canada for this wonderful surprise!

Flight of Fancy Finished

She is now done as I redid her hair but the picture did not come out right. The hair is a blend of turquoise and gold pigment powders and some irridescent green blended in too. her headpiece has tiny pearls inset in there and her body has accents of opals. i do not know what her name is yet as she has not told me when I asked her. I guess she likes being mysterious.
