Welcome to my blog

Today is a beautiful rainy spring day in Seldovia. A little wind, a little sun and here and there some sprinkles of rain.

I am making some homemade soup and finishing up some artwork. I am so glad you stopped by..please get yourself a cup of coffee and join me in my kitchen studio.

I have a regular studio upstairs ...but to tell you the truth..my kitchen table is where I do most of my art....with a cup of coffee and good friends stopping by to chat. Sit down and stay awhile..I am never too busy for company!

Thursday...Not Bad

Well today is not bad considering how bad I know the weather can get and has been. It rained and stormed last night...and all day yesterday. Partly sunny today with light clouds.

I have errands to run most of the day and paper work to get filed and finished....so maybe tonight I can work on my lessons in sculpting. I hope so because you know....that is what I'd rather be doing.

Time for bed

This is what I have accomplished so far today. Now it is time for bed....

Still much to do to finish... Tomorrow is another day.

Rainy Seldovia Day

Today we are experiencing a heavy downpour... sometimes rain just feels so right. I have not been able to sculpt today but last night I finished up some work on the Marilyn Radzadt workshop I am taking....there are some details I need to adjust...like the eyes are uneven and the nose my be a little too big.....but here it is.....

Still a lot to do but it is a "work in progress"

This is where I am right now. But will be working on it after I post this.

Workshop online

Here is the beginning.....of the class I am taking from a wonderful artist Marilyn Radzadt. I hope I spelled her name correctly.

More pictures to post in a minute.

Here is a little blue fairy I am working on ....I have painted the pants dark brown and am thinking about a top hat and what kind of hairdo I want for her......just wondering.

Here is the little warrior with a fuller hairdo. I like it better and I may add a little more just for loft and height.

But she is looking better each time I make an adjustment.

Just when you think you have your day planned. ..... something up and happens that changes your whole day.

But tomorrow is looking to be another glorious day and will be able to sculpt ..at least for the afternoon.

The weather here in Seldovia, Alaska is starting to really look like fall, the birch trees are changing colors and the plants in the garden are just about on their last blooms and looking a little ragged and spent. So comes the quiet time of year....the settling in time....well for me at least.

For my family it is snow boarding, snow machine riding, skiing...oh yikes...I just like to sit in doors and watch the snow fall...I love all the little flakes swirling around in the wind....I put my Christmas music on and just have a great time...

But for now it is time to put the garden to bed....put away the gardening tools....plant the last of the bulbs and bring in the begonias....and get ready for spring!.....the seed catalogs will be coming out in a few months....yaaaaaaaaa

Time to rest

Well this is as far as I got today...one wing, her necklace and I didn't break anything....so that is good. Tomorrow is another day...see if I can get her finished or at least a little bit closer to being finished.

All that glitters is probably glitter

I am going to put glitter on to this fairy and hope to make the necklace look like gold rings around the neck...I hope it works...

Here she is with the gold glitter on her...I touched up a few other things and also put this glitter on to the wings I am going to use on her just to keep the color tied in..Here are two photos of right after I put the glitter on. ....I am waiting for the glue to dry before I brush off the excess....

Necklace for the Fairy

Today is rainy here in Seldovia although by our standards...not a very bad day....no snow and no wind....that is a good thing.

Fairy Warrior Work in Progress

Hi, I am back. It has been awhile since I have had time to sculpt but sculpting I am.....it feels good to have my hands back in the clay. Here is the Fairy Warrior that I have been working on forever. I am almost ready to put her on ebay....just some added touches.

I always learn so much from each of my small sculptures...This one has really tested my patience. I have had to redo her head twice...finally I am satisfied with how it has turned out. I will post photos when I have finished her totally.
