Today is a beautiful, sunny but really chilly March day. I thought it might be a good time to try and up load a few of the pictures that I tried in vain to load yesterday.
These are pictures of my dressform sculpt that is a work in progress. I am having a lot of fun with this one.
I began with gesso on the form and added a topper of shells and pearls and beads - oh my. The next step was to paint it out - just loving it and then I foiled in both silver and gold - life is too sort for just one. Next I worked on decorating the stand with paints, glitters and beads. (If you like this you need to check out Jean Bernard's link that I included in a previous post.) Then came the collar - too cool. The last picture here is a couple of sculpts that I've done that attach to the base on wire. (A sea turtle and a fish so far.) I'm not even close to being done with this one. Hope you enjoy and I will keep you posted.

About Me

My photo

I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years.  I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories.  I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent.  I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish.  Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years.  There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now.  My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls.  Who could ask for more than that?
