Sold Art

March 20, 2018

So the little black and white relief that is in the Eccles art Center black and white show, sold during the show! I was so excited to know that someone loved my work enough to purchase it. I received the check last night in the mail. As I looked at the check, I could see the name of the person that purchased my art. Barb Crosbie! Barb is the lovely talented ceramic artist that I had a class with last summer. It was in her class that I created Groot. (Really should stop calling her that… but I can’t), I messaged Barb to tell her thank you for purchasing my art. She informed me that it was to be a gift. It touched me even more that it was purchased for a gift. I can’t really explain how nice it feels to have someone love my art enough to purchase it. My heart is full of gratitude.

Changing Direction

I posted this relief that I have been working on a while ago. I set her aside because I was really not that happy with her. I liked her face but other than that she was pretty boring. I need to work on better compositions with my work. I like things simple, but most of the time simple equals boring.

This is still very rough, but I am liking the direction better than before. I think I will leave the bare trees behind her head as recessed into the clay. The little pine trees in front of her face I think I will build up slightly and see how I feel with that look. Need tons more refining and I think her shoulder area is not in the right alignment/proportion. But full steam ahead!!

Black and White Angel

I made one more cast of the angel relief that I sculpted. This time I cast her in white resin. I added a very tiny amount of flesh color to the resin so that is was creamy, not stark white. Then I painted a  patina on her with acrylic paint. I entered this piece into the Black and White statewide competition at the Eccles Community Art Center. https://ogden4arts.org/ It is exciting to have a piece accepted into a show. Eccles said they had 277 entries and only accepted 175. It will be great to go see her at the opening of the show!
