Warning- these are not the most flattering pictures of me.

In effort to keep going in the last days of July (August has to be dedicated to getting ready for the upcoming semester and the two classes that need major renovations!) I decided to work on little lady's face. Paper mache applied this thickly will take days to dry and I just hope I don't have to worry about mold. I have the dehumidifier going right next to her.

I decided to share with you this portion of the project because its somewhat spiritual to sculpt a face. I found myself deep in thought about the day and my place in life as I worked up her facial features. I felt almost as if I were creating a real entity and I watched her come into being before me.

I smoothed

and pressed

and shaped

and thought to myself- I could do this every day
and if I could do this every day-

what stories I could tell!


  1. This sculpture is looking great!! I love that you were sculpting outside(O:

  2. gorgeous! The muse is with you!!! I can't wait to see more ♥

  3. Thanks, ladies- yes the muse is with me. Actually she's at home and I'm at work....

  4. ooohhh I love the pictures of you sculpting ! it shows you're going into deep meditation. I find that the real peace comes when I draw portraits as well.. the unknown.. face of nobody.. yet it could be you that you're painting or sculpting !
    Can't wait to see how you progress!

  5. Wow...she looks wonderful so far - please keep us posted on her development.

    btw - you look great!



  6. This is a beautiful peace of art!!!
