Sweet face in clay


Here's another little character I made in clay that I find to be so soft and sweet in features that I know she was a kindly Queen who won her Kingdom over with her rosy cheeks and abundant wisdom.... Ok I may have gotten a little carried away with my clay but I really enjoyed making her anyhoo! Happy Tuesday!

Art Quirk




"What kind of art do you do ", people ask. I answer " Potter, painter, candle stick maker", otherwise whatever medium strikes my fancy that moment.

I have practically tried almost every typical art form except glass blowing ( on my creative bucket list). Sometimes I wish I could stick with one thing, at the least it would save me dough and studio space! But alas I cannot. 

When I look around me I see things that inspire me daily and I never know till that moment whether it will be in clay, metal, paint or textile, all I know is that when I get the buzz I have to make whatever it is right then while I have the art mojo.

 These character's appeared under my earthen covered finger tip's after I melded thought's of deer out in the crisp fall forest's ,and primitive, almost folk art bust's both antique and modern that I have long admired. 

So Art Work that is my Art Quirk this may be but I am pleased with my colorful, and exotic creatures and my mind "for now" is calm till the next artful urge strikes!

Elouise

Well here she is. Here is Elouise and how I imagined her in color. As soon as I painted a rosey cheeked smile on her face I too had a smile of satisfaction and continued to let the paint and brushes reveal her sweetness. One of the  last thing's to paint was her dress and I love a good blue and red combination! Finally her bouquet of flower's and she was complete. I really enjoyed painting her, and will miss her when she goes to a new home but in the mean time I will admire her on my sideboard and paint another hopefully right away to keep her company. Xox
