Wintermoon - My Muse

Well, here is my latest art piece "Wintermoon : My Muse - I thought it was finished, but now I'm not so sure - I may add a little more of the floaty fabric, but not much.  Occasionally, I am quite happy with the way something turns out - in other words it comes close to what I had envisioned. This is one such piece.





I suppose it seems a little strange to be making something with such a wintry name, when it is high summer here, although the strange weather we have had lately has had me wondering where our summer went............the last three days it rained non-stop, so it was like summer disappeared. We were getting the dag end of what has devastated the state of Queensland  and by noon yesterday we were marooned in the middle of a lake, both studio and house sprang leaks - I had pots everywhere catching drips. But today a big bright sun is shining out of a flawless blue summer sky and there is a pleasant, warm breeze blowing, so all the water has just disappeared!


In case you missed it, Mary Mangini won my giveaway. Thanks to everyone who entered, (and entered, and entered!) You all made it fun. If you want another chance to win something, I'm participating in the One World, One Heart blog event at the end of the month. Click on the link in the side-bar for more info about the event.

She turned out magnificent. When you first started her, I thought she was clay but now I see you used cloth. She is definitely my favorite of yours so far.

Love the muse, nothing wrong with creating a wintry themed piece. There is something quiet and calming about winter. My heart goes out to your fellow countrymen and you for the water and flooding. We had a very bad flood here in my city in 1997. It is so surreal to see what was once city streets turned into a river.

Heart-stopping!

I do hope you stay dry, there seem to be so many unfortunate stories of the flooding happening on your end of the planet!

Wow! She is so unique. Very thought provoking. I was amazed by the different elements of how she was put together.
