Everything has been behind schedule by two to three hours. When you take the dogs for a morning walk at a half past two, you really can't take them again for an afternoon walk at a half past three. So when Mike came home this evening, dogs seemed especially happy to see him. I could see the bubbles above their heads. 'Yay, normal service will resume!'
I have started working on sculptures full on. In order to reduce stress close to the art fair, I am planning to finish all making three weeks prior to it. That's the plan. : )
I will show work in progress today.
Monday night - Left is a child, and the right is a large head.
Tuesday morning - Large head.
Yesterday I worked on the child for several hours. Suddenly the child wanted to become a bird, and then an owl. As I have made lots of little owls recently, I felt it is a good opportunity to make a large one.
Because there will be lots of wall space, I decided to make a wall hanging piece. I also chose a flat back for the ease of hanging. I made the body, back for the body and head and attached them.
But whatever I did, it didn't look happy. I had a light bulb moment. I felt the owl sent me a message. When I added tears, she suddenly became happy. When I checked the clock it was already a half past eleven, so I decide to leave her as she was until this morning.
The little ears were removed quickly.
This after noon - Crying owl
|Small head and Topaz (black one!)|
When I finish the head, I often take it to all places to see how it looks on various objects. I quite liked this one. Bizarre but a good proportion!
Last, as lovely Ilona requested, I took a photo of bunny bums.
Good night, everyone.
