Here is the work in progress I promised a while ago.... I never get around to posting the earlier stages of works for some reason... so here she is mostly finished... sans wings, not that every piece needs them, but she is "springing from the boulders like a mama lion" ....hah! and now I'm quoting Joni Mitchell lyrics apparently. :)..
Bad.... bad, blurry, ahem.....photos; on my dingy windowsill. you can click on them to see them full sized. The profile shot is enlarged, her actual size being 6" tall.
Ugh... I've been so busy not being busy these last few weeks! Recovering from the end of the second round of the flu today, and still a bit weak from fasting.. There is nothing better when you feel sick, to just put away the food and down lots of water and coconut water. I've been making the most delicious and refreshing juice; it tastes similar to a grapefruit soda! here's the recipe... (you'll need a blender)
2 cucumbers (peeled if they're not organic)
1 red grapefruit, minus the peel of course ;)
large handfull of cilantro or parsley
dash of vanilla if you feel up to it, although not necessary
blend together, and strain if you want a juice, or leave intact if you prefer a smoothie.
I have managed to finish another miniature, Cleome, 1.25"... and she is on ebay now.
*here's a closeup*
I'm also working on a larger scale figure... which has been slowly progressing over the past few weeks. The body is fully sculpted, only some final sanding and polishing to do, and then some pictures will follow shortly.
