Mr. Tibbons and his tooth friend Bicuspid have been sitting around my studio unfinished for a while. I got stuck on this project, unsure of what to do next. So, it sat for months and months.
Now was the time to pick him up and see what I could do to get him in a more finished state. I began with painting a crazy lime green color, with purple and blue mixed in. Honestly, I’ve been unsure of this entire project, so why settle into a comfortable choice now?
I plan to do another experiment, adding fabric to a sculpture. It will be my first mixed-media attempt. I can see him wearing an oversized jacket that trails behind him. Rather than sculpt fabric, I want to use an old sheet and apply a stiffener that will allow me to form drapes and folds. Then, I will paint over the top fabric with acrylic paint.
Mr. Tibbons has more to teach me, and I now have an open mind to take the lessons.
