February's First new Piece

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.

Cool doll Cody!
Just wanted to let you know that last week at the post office, I ran into a fan who just loves your work. Your name came up when we got to talking about the Essex Studios! Small world!

I totally understand the need to finish up existing projects before moving on to the next of a hundred that are in my head! I love the idea of mixing mediums in a project and agree that the soul of a tree can be a powerful ingredient in a piece. Bravo on this the colors and combination of texture and elements.
