Clay pictures




I like to paint, and I like to sculpt...but there are things about each that I get snagged on and lose interest.

Been making these clay paintings that are a combination of painting and sculpting, but just the fun parts of both.

These are the first two:

OctoClay3_s

MonsCat2_s

These are 5x5 inches, and I'm working on a third that is 5x7. I keep thinking of stuff that would be fun to try, but kinda complicated and much larger. Need to just slowly work my way up to there.

------------------

On an unrelated note, I found this enormous tomato worm in the back yard. These used to be on our tomato plants when we had a garden when I was a kid. I love how fat and slow they are, and I can see how this would be a juicy lunch for a bird.

Camera focused on Acorn sunning in the background instead of the worm...

And Angus in the background of the other photo. If you do anything outside, these two are all up in
your business.

I love those little clay pictures.
I also like those worms with the horn on their head, they are terrible.

Love your clay paintings (and your new pet)

Re the paintings: are you sure you aren't the reincarnation of the British artist, Patrick Woodroffe? (well, probably not 'cause he's still alive ...) Just that your work often reminds me of his, both the art and the writing, even though your styles are quite different ... mainly it's that you both have a love of combining different media in unexpected ways and quirky storytelling.

I want to be his reincarnation while he's still alive, 'cause that will take a really serious explanation that would be fun to construct...

Now that's an option I didn't anticipate and yet what other answer could one possibly expect from you? ***GRIN***

Tho' mayhap you're like Leiber's Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, who were convinced that they were the reincarnation of a great warrior whose soul was so huge it required two bodies to be reborn? ;-)

What a great joining of two things you're great at!
