I'm in steampunk mode, making gears from fun foam (and yes, I did fussy cut these).
I gave them a heavy coat of black gesso, and then tore into them with three or four colours of Inka Gold. I think they're starting to get that steampunky look, don't you? The largest is about 8" in diameter and I will not tell you how long it took to cut them.
I've got a lot more to cut, gesso and gild before there's enough for a 47" diameter clock created by Bart Bjorkman of Puffin Design. The clock itself he's repurposed from an old table top:
I think the combination will be a knock-out, if I can just get the scissors and time to cooperate; I've been calling this 'The Impossible Clock' for so long I'm afraid the moniker will stick.
I'm also working on a couple of large floral paintings/collages for an upcoming show in Kimberley. The flowers, leaves and stems are all Gelli prints. In this photo, I'm working on placement of flowers and flies on the background...somewhere in my studio chaos are some stems and leaves to add to the mix.
The second large floral has an entirely different colour scheme as you can see in this sneak peak...it's more my usual subtle colour style don't you think?
I also finished a felted piece, my first ever, last night at Carmen's workshop. What an amazing experience that was. I somehow managed to forget my camera, although with water dripping from every part of my body throughout the night, it certainly wouldn't have accomplished much anyway. Suffice it to say that wet felting is just as colouricious as any other visual art form (although very much wetter, I must say).
All in all I feel progress is being made and I fully expect you will see some completed pieces here in the next while. I hope your creative life is going gangbusters too.
