My First Droit

Finished another workshop and created my first "Droit" just in time for pumpkin picking. Loved learning how to apply joints so that the arms, legs and head can move more naturally and with his huge feet, can stand on his own - no wire armature needed!

Fall is in the air

...and the pumpkin harvest has begun

Feels like a Van Gogh'ish day

We're now on day 5 and counting of cloudy skies, rainy days and nights. I wanted to felt something sunny and bright and thought of sunflowers. I "googled" sunflower images and was immediately drawn to Van Gogh - however, I already created a Van Gogh'ish sunflower wall hanging in 2008...

...so back to the drawing board - perhaps it's a good day to start "Starry Night" - stay tuned!

Not Fiberart - hopefully inspirational!

Haven't spent any time in the studio to felt lately, however my cherry tree is in full bloom and will hopefully inspire me to get some felting started...

PODS Workshop

Just finished a 2-day felting workshop with the talented Andrea Graham at New England Felting Supply in Easthampton, MA.

I've been waiting over a year for this workshop to be offered and it was well worth the wait.

My first pod (based on a lotus flower pod) taught me the basic structural techniques along with learning that I need to concentrate more on color contrasts. It was pretty good for my first pod (the seeds "look like froggy eggs")

I tried to incorporate many of the techniques and decided to create a "sampler". This pod is ~14" long




The workshop was just what I needed to get back into the studio and create some fun sculptures.
