I'm so ready for the holiday season and having pushed a whole slew of custom work out in September I get to begin the month with a few days of just happy-making work! Letting my mind wander and take me wherever it wishes to lead me.
The "Ledgerkeepers" writing project is going well too. I upped the daily word count to 1000 and hit it all but once in the last few weeks. Some days nearing 2000 words! Stories are taking shape, the "history" of the Bewildering Pine is rounding into shape and I've been exploring mythologies, folk tales and geography so much more too. I had hoped to have some digital sketches to show but would rather wait until I have a few completed so I can keep them coming at a regular interval.
For now, here are a few of the September creations that came and went thru the shops.
I hope the Autumn season finds you enjoying all it offers in your "neck of the woods". :) And I hope to catch up on blog commenting soon too. This time of year is always so terribly busy in preparation for the holiday rush and with the writing project added, it seems I have so little time for anything but my work these days. . .
Enjoy and, as always, thank you so much for stopping by!
|A requested ankh amulet that, once completed, I liked so much that I am going to be offering it in the shop this winter. :)|
|I adore making these Hecate statues! Just one or two requests a year but I never turn them down. :)|
|It took me awhile to realize that my gargoyles have been looking more familiar lately. . . then it hit me it is because that face, that smile, is totally JOXER from Xena, Warrior Princess. Oh subconscious, how do you do it?|
|And I think my Foxgoyles have been coming into their own recently too. Abstracting animals is really a challenge! Simple lines, less fuss. . . better results I think!|
|A simple place for relaxing and day dreaming!|
|I'm no classic ancient world sculptor . . . but I loved taking on this Artemis request! Her mighty bow is actually strung with fishing line!|
|Found these lovely little Patina-glazed tealight holders recently and they are perfect for making little "castle "cupcakes! :)|
|Fairy Houses Upon Stars abound again this year, of course!|
|And the newest of the "Little People", a Domovoi Elf (with friends in the background)|
