What's on my work table today?

Hello my friends and followers out there in blog land.  Hope you are finding this week treating you good.  I have been busy with all sorts of stuff.  But, I wanted to take a minute to give you a peek into what is on my work table.  As you can see, I have two things to share.  I ordered some new Duochrome acrylic paints from Daniel Smith.  These colors are just amazing.  No one else makes colors like these yet.  They are color shifting acrylics which add a punch to many of my projects.  I am planning on some new painting projects and so much more this spring.  So, I will keep you posted on my adventure in Codyland.

Here you can see the beginnings of a new sculpt that I am making from a recycled doll.  Actually it's parts are from two different dolls.  I love using these as armatures for totally different imaginings of these little toys.  This one I am planning on doing a more detailed version of a sculpt I did a couple of years ago for a local art organizations charity auction.

The above piece is called the Oolah Bird, and I just love this piece.  I almost wished I kept it.  But, now I want to make a full sculpt based on this crazy character.  Don't ask me why, but I have had this in my head for quite a while.  We shall see how I pull this one off.  It will not look exactly like the above piece but, have the same flavor so to speak.

There's been a big change in my work hours at the art store.  This is going to allow me to spend lots more time in the studio and planning some new upcoming classes.  I am also hoping to update and re-offer the Alchemy class this summer.  I have been using the class for my own artist journey these past few months and it has been so rewarding.

Anyway, hope you stay tuned.  I am really excited to see what I get going.  Oh, and this newly acquired open time will let me keep this blog and other web stuff a bit more up to date.

Have a great weekend everyone.

I am excited for the possibilities and what I can accomplish with the extra time. I just need to stay focused.
