New February WIPs

Sorry I didn't get a post up earlier this week, but once I realized my deadlines were approaching a few days earlier due to February having only 28 days (yes, I guess I depend on those 2 to 3 extra days per month) I thought I had better get moving on the sculpting to allow time for them to dry.

Below are 2 of the pieces I'm working on for a March debut. The little pumpkin boy has a sucker in his hand that needs to be a little bit bigger so I will add some clay to that candy delight today, and the skelly figure to his side will have a bucket in his hand holding some goodies.

I have a few more works in progress I will post later this week. One item is new for me and the initial stage has dried successfully so I have my fingers crossed, twirled twice and if I had some sage I would try burning it to keep the evil spirits out of my studio space. Wish me luck!!

Have a great day, mix some paint, clay, ink or whatever you use, and happy creating!!

Thanks for stopping by Cathy!!!

Doreen,
Aren't you sweet...I have since put a hat on the pumpkin boy and fixed his sucker so he has more going on...skelly has his bucket now too.

David,
I can get quite a bit done when that is all I'm doing all day and night. Hubby is in a FF 2(firefighter)Instructors' class and is also teaching FF1 classes right now so it is just me and the cats in the studio most evenings. I was just telling the big guy what a snail I have been in my output, so thank you for the mental boost!!!

Chris,
I'm either mixing clay, working in clay or waiting for something to dry everyday. I even work on weekends, but it is more by choice than anything. I'm home alone a lot so sculpting and painting really fill my time up.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Oh, Laurie! I can just tell these two are going to be amazing! And personally, anything with a lollipop is a win with me! :) So fun to see these in the beginning stages.

Oh Pam, the lollipop got much bigger yesterday and I like the exaggerated size better...it is a little more folksy that way. He got a little pointy hat too. Much improved.

Thank you for stopping by!!
