JOEL, BOY BIRD + NANCY
Today I hustled my doll parts to my friend, Joel's studio,
where Artist Nancy Arthur McGehee joined us.
Now let me tell you about my friends.
Nancy is an incredible glass artist and a prime example
of her art can be viewed at:
Joel does about everything from painting, sculpting and mixed media,
with samples of his art at: http://www.sharpgallery.net/index.html
Above left, Joel is creating a doll by adjoining a head and body
to an inverted piece of palm tree. The reconstructed doll will be so
striking in all black with vivid blue eyes.
On the right, Nancy is hand crafting heads for a mixed media wall
hanging mounted on a wood panel. Her center imagery will be a
wired broken heart.
And center is the start of a Boy Bird that I concentrated on.
I did succeed in hot gluing fuschia and black feathers onto
the boy and attaching a thatch of blonde hair bursting out the
top of his head. I intend to paint the base with sunny skies.
It was a day of fun, fantastic food, friends . . . and
the sun was shining ever so bright!
