Well, I don't know what you guys were all worried about!
She turned out just fine. I gave the Matriarch an underskirt and now you can see the Maiden. There. Simple, easy, done.
and I should have brightened up the picture of the back for you but I'm a little lazy.
But feast your eyes on the little Maiden! Isn't she wonderful? As long as she stays up on her little hook I promise to love her unconditionally. (See what I did there- ha!)
You know how I usually have a story with the sculpture? Well, I don't. Just the title- The Matriarch and the Maiden. So how's about you make one up for me. Tell me what you think this sculpture is all about? Why is the matriarch so still? Who's really in charge here? I suspect it may just be the little person. What kind of creatures are they, anyways? Boy, you have some work to do.
She really has a lovely face. This is my first use of glass eyes and while I still am a big fan of the painted eye, for this project- the luminosity and depth was perfect.
Yes, she's done. Sigh of relief and accomplishment. I should probably clean a bathroom, or two, now. Or find a job. Or pay bills. Or develop the story of the haunted bride. She's from the 30's or 40's and was a war time bride. She was waiting for her husband to come back from over seas and thought she'd surprise him by greeting him in her bridal gown. Only he never got off the ship. Knowing deep in her heart this was a bad sign she decided to wait right there on a bench on the pier. And there she is to this day- waiting in a beautiful white gown....creepy, huh??? Well, ok, I guess the yucky bathrooms could come first.
Now- tell me what you think the story behind the Matriarch and the Maiden is! I can hardly wait!
