Work In Progress

Mr Dottie is away for  a few days, so I can make a lot of  mess without having to tidy up at mealtimes.

I've started today working on a few new sculptures, the others aren't camera ready yet, but this one is coming along quite well I think.......

Beatrice has been featured in the Art Dolls Europe July Treasury

I'm working with paperclay today, and it's great sunny warm weather here, so it won't take long to dry!

Thread Heads, Nearly finished....

These 2 girls have thread for hair, all stuck down with PVA glue, then gessoed and and painted with acrylics.

They are very nearly finished, but today it's another rare sunny day, so they will have to wait a little longer.

Out in the garden there's lots to do...including relocating some of the snails that have been eating all out herbs and flowers.....we found 30 so far today....

My passion flower is coming out....

I plant one of these where ever I live, as my Nan and Grandad had one in their garden....... :0)

A Marcel Wave

I love the 1920's, and I would have loved to have a "Marcel Wave". My hair is poker straight, and despite my Mother's occassional efforts to persuade it to hang in ringlets it remained stubbornly uncurled.....

But I can always live the fantasy via the medium of paperclay and thread. It is taking a long time, but eventually this small bust will sport a spectacular (if I do say so myself) heavily waved "do"

Session one

Session two

Eat your heart out Francois Marcel Grateau!!!!
