woodland creatures

these are three little mushroom creatures i made a while ago from paper pulp and glue.i never sculpted at this scale but i had to give it a try as it usually remains a little unconsumed  pulp .so instead of beads i made them.
the mammy is just a few inches bigger then the beads i use to make.though she looks grumpy she is not mad.she is more wearing the mark of ages on her face in her waiting for her beloved ones to come home.i often see mammies like her in windows and ports wearing dark cloths and kerchiefs as we're passing away and following our way.

Mr. Galoca is a well know poisoning mushroom but sooo sweet.remind though that you have to resist  him ;)
obviously he couldn't resist either to a little sweet summer treat...believe me ice cream was hard to obtain in the woods but he got some good friends out there.who would not like friends like his? ...hello friends ,so nice to know you here!

Green man is very bored....nothing can drag him out of his state.he knows the whole woodland ,the singing birds,passing critters the moon fazes,the season of raspberries and blueberries riping still nothing can awaken his interest. ..he wasn't excited either of that big red parfumed rose behind...huhhhhhhhhhh is all that i hear...i'm getting bored...

see you soon,

finished mirror

now i'm showing you the final steps of my first commissioned mirror.

first image-i opted for patterns on abstract painting.but i was not at all convinced by the developing result.
it was to dark and those three little prominences necessitated to be cut down as they were standing in my painting way ;)
i always like gesso-ing first the work area as colors are shown better on white.

second picture-just took the colors and put on the mirror having no particular thing in my mind as it shows...
then protected the color shapes with black outline which wasn't to my sons taste.he said-"now it's ugly with that black".
the crazy pattern work begun with the hearts shown on this image and ended -don't recall where- many many hours after....
i don't know how happens but i have no picture with the finished mirror only on my flickr.
if you want to see it just click the link below but don't be annoyed if you'll be asked to sign in.....i will try to look for the picture somewhere in our external hdd but that's another crazy thing to do now.

see you later,

it's always hard to come back...

and look for the" rope" you've left somewhere to continue...
loosing a dear friend it makes it even harder.i'm talking about my best papier mache friend who made me dive in this fantastic world of creation,who made me learn many about blogging at the moment when i had no idea what a follower was.not mentioning how rare is to find or to be found by somebody who really loves your work and who's work is inspirational and teaches you a lot.fortunately he left behind a precious legacy as he was sharing so generously his knowledge and i hope his videos,tutorials will always be there to help those "troubled" with the paper.
  Rest in peace dear friend,Jonty!
