Back on the Artistic Journey!

Hi there ... remember me?

Geesh! I should really kick myself for not blogging more.  Well, I will give you no excuses.  Not this time.  Life has been happening and I just pushed my blog to the side.  I do hope that you are all well and happy.  Speaking of happy ... happy St. Patty's Day to you all!  This day always reminds me of my sweet, Irish Dad.  I am sure my Mom is cooking him up some Irish dish tonight.  Corn-beef and cabbage, perhaps?  I, on the other hand, will be hoping my hubby cooks for me.  Not likely, but a girl has to dream.  :)    

Well, what's new?  I have been working on some new pieces and I have a couple of photos to share of my most recent art.

The first is a sweet Skellie Trunk called "I only have an eye for you."


I love how this piece turned out.  It was quite a puzzle trying to get the two skellie's to fit together.  The gentleman skellie has his arm around his gal.  His hand is somewhat on her waist.  You can see it better from the side angle in the below picture.  Do you see their tiny eyeball olives in their cocktails.  hee! hee!  I couldn't resist!


I love how the skellie girl's hair turned out.  Love the Gibson girl type bun and curls.  She is quite the lady, this sweet skellie girl!  

I also have been working on a cat and mouse duo.  This is my first attempt at a cat (and mouse) for that matter.  I hope you like them.  The hat they sit in is hand flocked.  Something I taught myself last year.  LOL!  I am always trying to learn something new.  Keeps me thinking and dreaming up ideas.  

Recently, I am playing with resins. Already had a couple of disasters, but then finally, success!  More on that later. 


The little mouse is removable from the piece.  He is jointed at the arms and hips.  The cat is doing a magic trick.  I think he is trying to guess what card the little mouse is holding.  

Next is my Bat.  


He is still a work in progress.  (Sorry about my messy work table.)  I am still sculpting his legs and feet.  His wings are just the skeletal frame.  There is still a lot of work to do on them.  They will look completely different when finished.  But this gives you a look at the inside framing.  This guy is a challenge, but his face is downright sweeeeeeeet!

Would love you hear from you.  Drop me a comment and share your blog site address if you want to share something you are working on!  

Until then ...
