A Folk Art From The Heart Challenge

Turns out I didn't bite off more than I can chew. This piece is really coming along nicely. All that's left now is to finish his broken arrow, and antique him. Actually there is one more thing left to do. He needs a name. I am going to let you all do that. And who ever comes up with the best name for this little guy will win a gift certificate worth $20.00 to be used either on my website or at my Esty shop. The winning name will be announced January 1st. Just click the comment button to participate. Don't forget to leave me your email address so I can notify you if you're the winner! Good Luck!

And here he is completed!

Oh Boy...

I sure hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew. As I have told you in an earlier post, I rarely like the first [draft] of any of my sculptures. And so far my poor little cupid is no exception. He's already lost his arms and his sash and but lucky for him, I like his feet. He's now got eyes and hair and a cute set of wings. So I'll be continuing on to reconstruct his arms and this time I may even add his hands! Stay tuned.

Here we go again...

In my never quite satisfied but constant, self imposed challenge, to create the perfect sculpture, (or at least my own version of it), it seems my quest has led me to yet another fork in the road. My direction of choice still seems to be strongly toward the whimsical rather than the realistic. So in that vein, I am working on my own representation of cupid. So far, he's coming along nicely. Stay tuned to see how he will turn out. I'm curious myself, because my pieces seem to evolve on their own and with very little help from me.
