I am still trying to finish up some works in progress and here is another figure created as a mixed media piece. I love using willow sticks and branches as part of the figurative element. There is something about the soul of the tree that I love incorporating into some of my work. This figure has polymer clay head and hands.
I call this one "Cosmic Pantomime' as he has some of the elements of the pantomime figure. The construction is rather simple, but versatile.
This is a close up of his upper body and head. I am actually going to be teaching this fun little figure type at Artiscape in Columbus Ohio in April. I have one more of this type of figure in progress. I am trying to get these done for the March 4th and 5th studio open house at the Essex Studios where I have a studio.
You ever have tons of ideas in your head that you need to get out? But, you want to finish up existing projects first? That is where I am at the moment. No shortage of ideas and new directions to go for work. But, I am one of those tortured souls who need to finish up works in progress before I move on. I will be glad to get the last of these out of my hair and move on to new stuff. Hope you all have a grand weekend.
