Book Sponge

Book Sponge

It’s been awhile since I posted anything on my blog.  Hi everyone :-) Today I share with you “Book Sponge” as my husband just named her.   This sculpt came about after having a close friend come over to work (staining my redwood benches/arbors) and brought her eight year old daughter (the last of her seven daughters!) with her.   Her Little Mo Mo, as she likes to call her, wanted to earn some money too as a model for me.

“Garden Reverie” Finished in Bronze!

“Garden Reverie”  Finished in Bronze!

Hi everyone,

Finally have some pics to share with you of Garden Reverie in monochrome.  The patina is called a pastel patina, meaning that a white base is used and then color is slowly built up upon that.  I wanted her to look warm and soft so we used warm colors of rosy salmon, tan, off-white and grey.
