phew.. long time since I have been here.. busy busy life and art happening. On the artyfarty side of things have started a Huhu beetle and a moth with blue tissue wings from on old dress pattern.. hope to do a series of those.. a play on the saying of moth-eaten cloths.. mothballed etc..
another monday.. a photo of two of the pumice heads I carve.. the larger one still being worked on. I like to keep the original shape of the pumice as much as possible. and the green lips. hmm… often I do the lips a soft wash of pink/brown but every now and then like a bit of drama.
GRAY MORNING HERE.. HAVE HAD SOME AWESOME WEATHER THO.. WENT TO BEACH SUNDAY. GOOD FOR THE SOUL. NO WIND. THE SEA WHISPERING AND THE SKY A BLUE WITHOUT A NAME.
AM BACK TO CARVING FACES. USE LARGE PUMICE. SOFT AND EASY TO CARVE IN ONE SENSE BUT THE DIFFERENT TEXTURES AND SHAPES ARE A CHALLENGE.. lOVE IT. NO PLAN THEY SEEM TO BE THERE WAITING TO BE BOUGHT OUT. PICS LATER.
see the wire loop on the underside if the bug.
it is for hanging on a wall.
