it looks like we may be in for a bit of a warming trend for the next week here in the beautiful crescent city!
i guess mother nature got my memo!
there's not much going on here in the studio. the last week has had me crippled without my muse...every piece of clay i touch looks like crap. i have 3 dolls ready to paint and not a single one of them has any personality peeking up through the clay to me at all.
i have no idea what happened...well, maybe i do.
i thought i would try a few new sculpting tricks: i wanted to sculpt lips and add some more dimension to their upper torsos. it turned out horrible. i'm embarrassed. i thought i could feel it...
i'm not ever going to show you the pictures. they're bad.
so, today i am laying clay on some medium sized figures to be day of the dead grooms. no brides this time. all dudes. i really do love making their top hats.
these pieces turned out so wonderful to me, that i guess my creative side just needs to refuel before the next batch.
anyway....i think i'll go for a walk with my camera. maybe grab a drink.
so, wish me luck getting my mojo back!
