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!
So here is the muse so far. I need to paint before I can put the cloth part of the costume on. I will be using gauze and hope to have photos posted by the end of the week of it finished. I did change the color of the legging and top to a light beige...not much different than white but better! It is totally posable and can sit by itself. So far I am pleased with it.
I have been doing a small sculpt for a friend. She is to be a muse and is really coming along nicely. I have been working out the details and now I am down to the last few details of finishing her. I was going to post a photo of her ...but I haven't downloaded them yet....bad me! Well I guess I will go do that...right now!
I have been working on several sculptures and I am also taking a sculpting class. It is a Wendy Froud type class and is being facilitated by a very nice person...I will post the head I am working on. Here is what I have so far. It is a very long way from being finished. I did one last year and gave it to my friend Roxi, who named her Cassandra, a very lovely name! She sits in the china hutch in her home. This one is a little taller about 16 inches and doesn't have a name yet!
I am an Alaskan born artist, living in a small rural alaskan fishing village. I have 6 wonderful children and 15 grandchildren all of whom are bright, beautiful and very talented. I admire anyone who makes handmade items. The traditional crafts that were so important years ago, were beautiful as well as useful.
I also am the oldest of a very large family. 6 brothers and 1 sister....My sister lives in Fairbanks...one brother lives here in Seldovia...one in Tampa...very spread out family....but love them all.
