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!
Well the WF Project is moving along but while I was wiping off some excess color from her face I created a crack just under her chin on her neck....darn it! But on the plus side she stands on her own....I was worried she would not balance properly. And I think the proportion of her size and then her feet are pretty close. She stands 22 inches the biggest Wendy Froud type sculpt I have ever done....well I have only done 3....oh...and I love her feet!
Tomorrow I will be posting photos of the little Muse I have been working on for a couple of months. So close to being actually done. But the motivation factor is missing.....so if I say that I am going to here....then perhaps that will help.
I seem to be moving in slow motion these days. Sometimes I feel like my life is falling apart. I don't think it is because Jim died.....I think it is just a general falling apartness of it all....can't focus, can't think, can't get anything done....seems like I just go in circles and trip over myself. I hope it passes soon...this is getting old fast.
I need to finish my sculpt for the WF type project I am part of .....and today I made myself post items for sale on my Etsy shop Selvsaas@Etsy.com my Sandee's Village Shop has been needing some items to sell in it for a couple of months. Not very motivated...I put up some Hermit Crabs that I have had done for a month and they should have been posted weeks ago.
So anyway...I am going to post a few pictures and then see about finishing my last foot for the project.....
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.
