Noodling around

Almost 30 years ago, I taught myself silk painting. It’s great fun, except for the fact of how unforgiving it is–make just one mistake and often the whole piece is ruined. Over the years, I’ve saved my mistakes, assuming I’d find a use for them some day. Just last week I experimented until I figured out how to work them into pieced art. What you see below is the rough, experimental version. More to come!

Progress on my latest relief sculpture

I posted a little while ago about how a gigantic pig that I saw while in Greece inspired me to create a sculpture of a pig face. The background of the piece is flat, but the pig’s face will be three-dimensional. As you see in these photos, I’m working on the background and building the armature that will become the pig’s face. More to come as the piece progresses!
