Part One - I worked on this guy early this morning (which was really late last night because I hadn't gone to bed yet). I wanted to play around with the plaster cloth but I didn't want to tackle anything large. I saw this guy in the materials bin in the basement and brought him upstairs. I got him at a garage sale for under a dollar and I never intended to do anything with him but plaster cloth him into a new creature.
|I really dislike this guy in his original state...except I like his dangly legs.|
|I think he is supposed to be a pig or a boar but that doesn't seem like a very piggy or boary tail.|
So I had to fill in all of the space between the original ears and forehead/nose area. This is maybe just the first stage for this guy. I don't know what I want him to be yet, other than just a creature.
|First he gets the masking tape cover up.|
|The body and feet get the plaster cloth...tail tbd.|
I love his dangly legs -- but I wanted to not have them be cloven hooves anymore.
I like them so much I made a little movie of them...like to see it? Here it goes:
Part Two -- Juana and I visited Sanda Cook at her studio! We had fun talking and getting to know each other and looking at her wonderful artwork.
|Yep, I "made" Sanda do this pose.|
|Sanda and Juana.|
|Take one -- much too serious.|
