Work in Progress

Not unlike my daughter, who really doesn’t want me to look until her painting is finished, I am always a bit reluctant to share sculptures as they are in progress.  In the spirit of openness and stepping outside of my comfort zone, (I’m growing, I’m changing..), I am going to share some work as I create it.  I figure no better place to start than with the bust I have been working on for quite some time now, so, without further ado, here she is.

She’s made of super sculpey clay, with a wire and mesh armature.  The eyes are resin dolls’ eyes, and the base she’s on (not shown) is an old wooden spool.  The finished work is floating around in my head already, but there is quite a bit of work between now and then.  Tonight I’ll be spending some time on her shoulders and getting her profile a little more… something.
