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!
I have started new practice rounds on the Beginning Polymer Clay Sculpture Group. I love this group. I have learned so much about sculpting from all of these wonderful ladies. I hope I am getting better at this part. Anyway one of the members is going to teach a costuming project, so I am really excited about and I have posted photos of the head I am working on...before and after the critique from Judy and Janet, who are so nice and have taught me so much. If any of you are interested in learning to sculpt in polymer clay I suggest joining this group.
This one is after the critique. I am going to post another one I did with green eyes that I made myself. They are flat and I just put them in to show a lady on the group that you need not have expensive eyes to sculpt.
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.
