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.

Blogs Of Note

Oh my poor poor blog. I have been so busy of late with the gallery show coming and the busy Halloween season upon us that I haven't even looked at the poor thing in over a month. Well you can imagine my surprise when this morning I decided to tend to my little space on the web to find a huge increase in traffic, comments and new followers.

With the help of google I discovered Blogs Of Note and found that my blog had been featured. Please check out the site there are gobs of great blogs to check out recommened by blogger.

So I'd like to thank all the new visitors for your comments and for choosing to follow my blog. I typically post more frequently that I have been in the last month or so and hope you'll enjoy my artwork and various meandorings on life.
