UFOs from my past or Starting a new
I don't know about you, but I have been on this kick of returning to unfinished objects de art or UFOs as I call them. You know some great idea you have at one time and just didn't finish or take it to it's obvious conclusion. Here are two such examples. I brought these home from my away from home studio back in May after our last open house. I started these last summer when I was just messing around with some stuff. As you know I am into this Icon kick of late. These are some little sculpts made from some of my own molds attached to a small 6x6 inch canvas. The background is actually made with graphite blended into a clear molding paste like stuff. A friend of mine gave me some to play with. She uses this stuff in her theater design job for doing texture on sets and things. It is interesting. Anyway, I am going to transform these gals into pieces based on the idea of the number three. You know the three fates or three virtues kind of thing?
This panel is the one with the graphite mixed into the texturing stuff. It gives an interesting old dirty look or quality to the background. I am not sure it will survive the redo though. Who knows what will happen. I have to sit and look at them and ponder which direction and who these gals are supposed to be or represent.
Secondly, here is the one without the graphite mixed in to the texture stuff. I think the stuff is called Sculpta Coat or something like that. Next time I talk to Lisa, my friend I will ask her the name of it. Just in case any of you out there might be interested in it.
Guess it's obvious that I am feeling a bit better. It doesn't hurt that I am getting bored just laying about. Don't worry I am pacing myself and not over doing it. This recovery thing really bites for sure. But, I am really on the mend. Thanks again for stopping by and for the continuing encouragement.
