|My Queen Anne Pumpkin Ladye needed to get her details before her arms and legs were finished.|
Spring is not perfect...
It takes it's time.
Sometimes it steps back for one last dance with
Old Father Winter...
Sometimes it likes to play in the rain.
For days and days.
It sets it's own pace.
As do I.
|I love the stylized features but she was too blank at this point. Her friend is getting a bit of a change also as I try to increase her size and do her up a bit differently. Push and grow!|
I find myself happily engrossed in my work.
I thought I had my work plans for this year all planned out.
Then opportunity happened
and I find myself in full Halloween mode.
I knew after the Holidays,
that I wanted to step back to the magic that Primitive Halloween held for me almost 20 years ago.
I felt it would be a slow dance and inspiration would be a slower pace until Summer.
Opportunity held it's own magic.
I don't want to let go.
I want to dig deeper and create more.
|Poor girl was looking a bit too Alien before I had all of her layers - |
not to mention arms and legs complete.
Part of that is including an exploration
and researching of old stones and dolls. Understanding it in replication
along with a little touch of me.
My Queen Anne inspired is imperfect in reproduction terms...
certainly not purist.
I don't want to be held so firmly in replication that I lose the spirit that is me.
I just need the feel of it.
So as you see, my little Queen Anne is coming along in clay, not wood...
and while she may keep most of the stylized formula,
she is done in my terms...
as a Pumpkin Ladye.
|I just love the colors of Marie's Shoe...It brightens a gloomy day!|
on this rainy week,
I balance pattern orders
and work around a Wee one
for a couple days.
I work towards a video on Paperclay,
a shrinking mound of personal paperwork...
and new clay friends with an edge towards Halloween.
