Folk Art Diary, chapter 2 - Almost there
Just need a second look at her tomorrow with fresh eyes. You always find things that need painting or re-working then. (The crowbar is an assemblage sculptor's version of an eraser.) She also needs to hold her wooden spoon in her dangling (not pictured) hand - you can always use an extra hand in the kitchen.
The one thing I didn't think of when making her - that I thought of while painting her - was the angle she'd be viewed from when completed. Being a mobile of sorts, that perspective wouldn't be as complementary as I had imagined unless you were standing on the ceiling. What - not the norm for an art lover? So I added a few more pieces below to give 'interest,' without added 'flash'.
Anyone care to add a critique? I always appreciate comments on my artwork as seen through others' eyes. Or come see her when complete at the Shelburne Museum's www.shelburnemuseum.org/ Diamond Barn Gallery (see previous post).
