Ok, so summer is obviously not over, but it is time for me to get back to work creating new work, and getting some regular blog posts up here for you to see.
Since I’ve returned from a bit of travel, I have had the chance to finish up the motorcycle commission I had been working on. That piece happens to be a surprise from one person to another. On the very, very off chance that the recipient would be among the dozen or so individuals that actually read my postings here… I’m going to hold off posting any full photos of that completed piece and just tease with some detail shots of bits and pieces until the sculpture is delivered. However, if you happen to be a Facebook friend, Instagram follower, or are part of any of the art doll groups I’m a member of, then you may catch a glimpse of the fully completed sculpture.
Here you can see two pairs of motorcycle boots, the glass gem headlamp, and other parts of the bike’s front.
Lots and lots of little stitches on on the motorcycle seat, messenger bag, and passenger’s jeans.
Now, it’s off to the studio to start a couple of new pieces. One of them is also a commission, but it is sort of a redo of an earlier piece, and definitely not as involved as this one. Not sure what I will share with you next week, I guess we’ll both have to wait and see.
It has been fun taking you “along for the ride” on a multiple piece commission. As I stated before, they can be tricky for us artists generally used to creating exactly what we want when the inspiration strikes us. It is gratifying to know that some patrons enjoy the work so much they want it used to capture something special to them personally.
