So the rain finally subsided and the sun came out and all I could do was work in the garden. I didn't want to waste any sun days in the house. That put a little damper getting my art work done. Although I did get in some work on Rod, and then began another project, (geez I'm the worse...can't help myself, when I get an idea I just have to go with it). I have always loved the idea of sculpting. So I finally picked up some polymer clay and started playing around.
It wasn't flowing...nothing. I wasn't coming up with anything unusual or special. So after scrapping my second major attempt, and day of working on one particular piece, I sat there staring in utter frustration...why can't I get out what I clearly see in my mind? What am I fumbling about with? What can I make? Then it hit me suddenly...why don't I do what I know...what I do best!
So that's what I'm doing. Here is a very teeny tiny close up of a very raw, very beginning of where I am taking this...himmmm, look familiar? Of course it will morph into something other than what you see here right now...but Yep, we're heading into another area in the "Rock Series"...you'll just have to wait for the update. Hope it's as fun for you as it is for me.
Next I wanted to give you the updated process of Rod...he may not look that different at first glance, but he is. I completely reshaped his whole profile, his features are more defined and darker..although his mouth has been erased. And his hair has more definition and the neck scarves are starting to take shape...it's getting there. I promise to put more attention onto this painting in the next few days...He needs to be finished already! Rock On! Juners Oh, and here's an update on the garden I'm building.
|ROD THE MOD...HE'S GETTING THERE|
|A ROCK STAR WITH LARGE LIPS..HIMMM...NO NOT HIM, THE OTHER ONE!|
