OK...so I thought since I couldn't show you anymore of the piece I am working on I would show you the cover of Martha Stewarts Fabulous Halloween issue on the newstands now to get you in the mood for Halloween. It is a "Gotta Have" magazine that I purchase every year. She always produces fantastic and creative ideas in this issue for anyone that is a lover of Halloween you will appreciate the projects in these issues. I must say...I was particularly enchanted by her gorgeous horse Rutger. I want him!!! And of course she looks magical in her equestrienne outfit. Enjoy.... ;-)
Well...I must say August was a hectic month for me. Huge outdoor projects to complete, barbecues, camping, picnics, etc., but I have been working on some new pieces whenever I get a free moment. ADO is having a Halloween Challenge that will be the first one I have ever done so I am excited about it. I am not sure if I can post pictures yet... so I am going to tempt you with a photo of a piece that I am working on called "Be Back At Midnight" As soon as I find out how and when the pictures can be posted I will be sure to let you know where to view them. Anyway...here are a few tidbits of the items which will be incorporated into the piece. Be back soon with more updates.... ;-)

I wish I could say I was one of those artists that can start a doll and sees it to completion...but unfortunately that just isn't the way I work sometimes. Of course...when it does work out that way, I am happy as a lark, but most often I can sculpt a head and it can sit for days, months, even years before I get back to it again. I guess I start out with good intentions but if the doll doesn't become clear to me right away they get placed aside until one day the inspiration strikes again for me to pick them up and start again. Sometimes they turn into something completely different than I had envisioned. So...I thought I would show some of the ones that are here and there around my studio. Some are large doll heads, others are for full sculpts and so on depending on the size I am working in. Patient little things... waiting for their creator to pick them up and bring them to completion.....
(To see doll heads better just click on the photo to enlarge)
P.S. Just a note to say I am still at it with Alice and Wonderland for those of you that are curious. The piece has become more involved than I had anticipated so is taking a little more of my time. Hope to show pics soon!!!
