A block of styrofoam packaging came in the mail the other day with something I ordered... Rather than tossing it, I decided to sculpt a birdie for the yard. Having never tackled such a thing, I approached it in a rather staight forward manner... kind of boring... :(
So I added a wormie :)...
1. Sculpted Styrofoam
2. Styrofoam covered with Plaster Canvas
3. Wormie (added for interest)!
Next comes a layer of ThinSet and then... MOSAICS!!!
Well this is a far cry from a pumpkin patch… but last fall I placed a pumpkin on this stump… Since my 94 yr old mom thought it was "so interesting" as it "aged" through the winter, I tacked a bit of chicken wire and added moss and dirt to it this past spring. Violá! A little pumpkin patch for my mom! She's tickled pink!
Came downstairs early the other day and found this guy casually perusing my front porch! I stomped my feet and clapped my hands... He/she just looked at me as if to say, "What's your problem?" So I got a pan (after I took his picture!) and clanged it with a metal spoon! That did the trick and he took off! He returned again mid-morning and I repeated my "pan trick" and I haven't seen him since! I'm wondering, is he a coyote or fox? I live in northeastern PA and am told that coyotes are in all states but Hawaii!
When I was in college, an art professor told me that to achieve true success, I had to choose one area of art and focus on that only. How sad, I thought... and, how... b_o_r_i_n_g!
Perhaps "success" is in the eye of the beholder! I embrace all forms of art and want to jump in and try it all!
Having to be practical, back in 1984 I created T.LEE DESIGN STUDIO and began to design for the giftware industry. I design all sorts of things from greeting cards to porcelain music boxes to needlework. I have never been bored and eagerly await each new life discovery!
