I need to take 3 sculpts to NIADA this summer – and am working on a bunch of different projects – hopefully 3 decent pieces will fall out of this.
thoughts of a friend and her family, combined with memories of the music video for the old Live song – Lightening Crashes, and got me thinking about life and death, transitions and angels….
got started on this piece – hoping she will develop into something beautiful
a little later – here she is in my very messy workspace (belive it or not, this is very cleaned up for me – I don’t have a formal studio space, instead just grabbing whatever table space is available. unfortunately, some of my family seem to want to eat dinner on the dining room table —- its the best space in the house, lovely french doors out to the back patio let in lots of light – and i can sprawl out….. on the other hand – here is a more acceptable space – the portable work table in the spare bedroom. sigh. oh to be rich…..)
making some progress here…. the “feathers” feel like skin to me, and i’m playing with thoughts of making the center quill fingerbone like…. I suspect she won’t have hair – but i’m thinking about some sort of something around her head….. or not. i hate deadlines….
