The color, craft(wo)manship, and design of your pieces are remarkable. It is a great pleasure to see them. I wonder often how to express peace in artwork. You have found a great solution. Thank you for your work and for your generosity in your openness to others.
What I am using right now is a product called Sculptamold which if you haven't heard of it or seen it, kind of looks like a bag of dryer lint that you add water to and then form the paste into whatever shapes you want. I like to sketch my ideas out in my sketchbook and then on wood panels sculpt them using sculptamold, and then when the piece has dried, I paint it with acrylic paints.
I tend to get my ideas just from the funny people that I observe in regular daily interactions.
So far my work is sculptural relief, but I am really intrigued with going fully 3D.
I have been told before that my work is quite cartoony and that somehow I should make a cartoon, but honestly I don't know how to go about that because I do really like the 3D aspect of what I do. I mean I guess I could just draw and paint 2D cartoons, or illustrations - it sure would be faster! - but I do enjoy the sculpting part a lot.
Do you have any thoughts?
Also I would love to hear how you've made twitter work for you, so far I have not got very far with it, but then again I haven't given the idea my full effort that is for sure!
All the best,
I look forward to the care package. I'm curious about what I will do with all the goodies too. It's amazing how they find their own unique place in the scheme of things.
I've been connecting with some very interesting artists from India on facebook and loving their work...quite different and wonderful...lots of symbolism. One woman I communicate with owns stores and is into home decorating. She's interested in my dolls, but I think for her own collection. I must get back to creating. It seems one thing or another gets in my way. Just when I think I have a day to devote to dolls, I get called into work...grrr. I'll be so glad when I don't have to work outside the house so I can pursue my passion full out, full time. Love, E
