Many that create know that you have to work a season or two ahead. Although I feel like Christmas slid right by me this year. I have so many sketches for Christmas creations I just didn't get time to do, so I may work on them through out the year.
I find myself already on spring as I am trying to create a few teaching options for those that are inquiring. Items that don't make the teaching or pattern cut will then be listed in etsy. I will know better once groups have selected their items for the year.
"Spring Is Sprung" or should it be "Spring Has Sprung" ??? Yikes! I wanted to create a piece more folk art looking as I love all things Folk art or Primitive. My creations always have a whimsical look to them. My husbands least favorite thing I create are bunnies lol! He just doesn't care for the folk art look I guess?? Last year he was quite the critique but what does he know right haha!
It's really challenging when creating a piece for possible teaching classes as I have to limit how detailed I go as most projects need to be completed in a day. Oh the ideas were spinning as I created this piece and I wanted to add more but I know I already made this piece probably a (2) day class as with larger groups we could not sculpt all the details in one day. So it will be a (2) days sculpt/texture and start painting maybe finish class.
I love watching the birds and I always think of spring and little blue birds.
I made this little bunny girls wings all sparkly with glass glitter and she is very sparkly all over!! I wanted to give her eye lashes as well and looking at the pictures I realized I forgot to add them. I may add them today. Remember this is more of a folk art looking face for a bunny not your typical looking bunny.
This is a spring piece you could leave out longer than just as a Easter piece. I originally was going to have her holding a chick and some eggs but steered away so she was more spring related.
I hope you like my "Spring" piece for 2018. I have a few more birdies I am working on so stay tuned. I also have a Christmas Cardinal I haven't finished yet . I am hoping to get them complete soon, so stay tuned!
PS- What makes you think of Spring?????
Have a great Friday!
