Hey, well, no posts for a week and then two in one day; it's feast or famine around here. I've been making dolls again.
I admit that posting the photos of student work inspired me to get out the clay. That and the fact that it's the first moment I've had in the studio. I hardly knew where to start with so many ideas twirling around vying for attention. Finally I settled down though and made a body for the demo head I started in the class at Art & Soul.
I've named her Bianca and she is very special to me. With chenille from a student (thanks Chris!) I fashioned white polka dots for her. With me it's either dots or stripes. In this case dots.
And then along came this one which I have named Green for my own reasons. It's Green's Birthday in a day or two and so she and Bianca are going to go to their favorite Thai restaurant and then eat ice cream afterward. They like to do that.
Green is a warrior; very strong and brave. She has known Bianca for many years and Bianca admires her.
I was going to give her a superhero cape but Green shrugged it off and settled for the helmet instead.
Bianca is more of a conformist than Green is; she likes to hide in sheep's clothing.
She is loving Oregon's mild weather so far this autumn and even heard tree frogs croaking outside. She plans on staying cozy this winter in her fuzzy coat of wool. Chenille. Whatever.
