More Saints

I've been working my hiney off for this show (well not literally though I wish:)

It's been a strange process as I was originally looking forward to the theme Carnival of Saints and Souls, encouraged by the opputunity to do something a little different. As time went on and no light bulbs of inspiration were going off I started getting nervous. I can't deny that I was also feeling anxious about the degree of talent I will be showing with and felt I needed to come up with some of my best work.


I researched Saints and found it a very interested topic but still nothing came to me so with the clock winding down and the deadline looming I just decided to start sculpting and see what happened. What came out is what I do best, desperate souls. I found myself identifying with the people that needed these Saints more than the Saints themselves so I created some needy ones as well.


I did try some new techniques and am happy with my collection so far. Here are just a few pieces. These pieces will be available in my Etsy shop if not sold at the show.
