I've been asked what I plan on doing with the heads I've been making. Well, for one thing, I'm going to paint them.
Today I stopped sculpting and started painting on four of them. It usually takes me a day or two of painting on a piece before I decide I'm happy with it.
These four kept me busy most of the morning. The first on the left, the older gentleman has a friend down stairs on the drying racks. At first I pictured them in my mind sitting at a table in the park playing checkers. Then I decided that I didn't feel like creating something that would require so much display space so I thought about having them out for a walk, maybe with a dog on a leash. It's really anybodies guess what I will end up doing with them.
Some of the heads may end up in a box and stuck up on the shelves above my work area. Some will be made into dolls and some may end up in the trash.
This is my way of journaling, a way to practice my sculpting and painting. Not everything I start gets finished and I know for a fact I'm not the only one who does this.
As always, thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend.
