Sideways Glance

Here is a cylinder-type figure, made in October, 2016. You may remember an earlier one I did in Art Camp Claudia McGill.

I’ve given you a front view, a back view, and a detail of the color work. I am not sure the figurine is happy about all this attention – just look at his face…

    Thank you. I really enjoy making these figures. There is the face and then all the details- two different processes on the same piece. It is relaxing and I get lost in the patterns.

    More or less. My world is still a bit out of synch, but I think doing the blog will help. I’ve missed your posts…ready for some more inspiration.

    Thank you. I really appreciate it that you can feel the care I take with my artwork, not that it has to be considered “good”, but that it is important to me to get it looking “right” to me, and feeling satisfied. Because the process is everything, I think, at least for me.

    I am an artist as well. I work on my paintings for short, or long periods of time. I believe perfection is attainable, but to stop before perfecting the painting is very hard. My friend who is an art person challenged me to stop before the painting was complete, and to the detail that I like. I don’t leave a painting unfinished unless it looks fine this way. I am too rigid. I stopped painting for a season. Now I am ready to paint again. It is therapy. My sister encouraged me to paint. My dad encouraged me to paint what I see. At times I see within, and not the external things. I see those things also.
