Well, it's been a crazy two months. Off to a busy start this year. Throw in a couple of eye surgeries for cataracts, (the second one coming in a week. . . and if I hear "Oh you're awfully young to have cataracts." one more time. . . it's little consolation!) The first surgery went great and the new lens they implanted is crazy-good! My vision has not been this good since I was 5 or 6 and no side effects at all. . well, except I did have a hankering to watch some old "Six Million Dollar Man" episodes after-wards but that went away.
But I have been busy with my work and so thankful for the wonderful customers who have been so kind and patient as I get back to full tilt productivity.
Below is a sampling of the work I have been doing this month and hopefully, after the next surgery, I'll be able to really go, go, go this summer!
So here is what I am up to. . .
|The smallest pieces are always my favorite!|
|There's a TINY mailbox in front of this one. The textured walls are a new feature I plan to use a LOT! lol|
|He's got a rather pleasant disposition for "God of Storms and Chaos" but everything can't be all gloom and doom can it?|
|A custom piece by request. . . but I loved creating the night-time sleeping Elf motif!|
|Two rather pleasant fellows in their own right!|
|A custom landscape for an Australian customer. I'd really love to get more into finished landscapes as an offering in my shoppe one day. Perhaps for the next year to come.|
|Osiris. . . My Egyptian statues get larger and larger as my comfort and skill level grows. I've only been sculpting forms like this for four years so I am still learning a lot. He is one of my finest though I believe.|
|Another house with mailbox and picket fences. And the textural roof and walls. LOVE those!|
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the peek into what's been going on in my creative world. In addition, there's been loads of story writing and idea jotting and plan making. . little books, fairy stories and maps, more than I can squeeze into a day!
Hope all is well in all of YOUR creative worlds too!
