My random postings, it makes perfect sense to me.

While the main purpose of this blog is to promote my artistic side....I find it impossible to ignore the other parts that are just as, or more important than my sculpting. So, from time to time, I like to share tidbits that make

New Work in Progress

This is a commissioned piece and will be a dark skinned mermaid, exotic and sultry. Her eyes are a pale olive green with a gold tone around the pupil. At this stage, she isn't blushed or painted, just the color of the custom mixed clay. I hope to have more pictures to share as work progresses.

Happy 4th of July 2010

The 4th of July is my favorite stress, just family and friends gathering to enjoy each others company and to appreciate what we take for granted most of the year.

A special red white and blue quilt hand made many years ago with family and friends names written on it. From toddler scrawls to foreign exchange students who joined us to celebrate...spread out on the grass of the local high school football field. Fireworks lighting up the warm summer evening, hot dogs, shaved ice, This has become a traditional 4th of July for us. Grandchildren making the occasion even more special as years go by. Seeing it all fresh...reflected in their eyes.

Work in Progress

Tapper was sculpted
 last year as a commission
for a dear friend and
 I have very few work in
 progress pics, but this
 was a fun one, so I thought
I would share her.
She's an exuberant little
 faerie, Julz
 can barely keep her
 on her base. :)
