I've completed the final piece for the "Images of Tasmania 16" exhibition. The work goes up next week, with the opening at 8:00 am on the 12th of December. I've managed to get a lot done......but I had to burn the candle at both ends a bit to do it. Now I can relax a little before the Christmas shenanigans begin! This is "Windsong"
I was determined to finish this before I retired last night.........and that I did - at 2:00 am! So here she is: the third Sorrydoll and the final one for the December exhibition.
And here are the three of them together - you can see how similar/different they are:
I only have one more piece planned for the exhibition and will make a start on it this weekend with about ten days up my sleeve to get it completed. Once it is done, I can relax a little bit. Looking forward greatly to being in Hobart on the 11th December to set up and then for the opening at 8:00 am on the 12th.
Painting plinths on a Sunday evening to fabulous sixties music......Byrds, Jefferson Airplane, The Band etc, etc. Full moon tonight.....the eighth moon.........for the first time I feel uplifted, not saddened by it. Everything is lining up to be ready for delivery to Hobart for the exhibition on December 11th. I can't remember ever being this organized and on track to meet a deadline! What's happened? Still a few more pieces to make, but having got the plinth problem dealt with, I can relax into getting them made.
Next Sorrydoll on the go....and pretty poppies in my garden, just because.
I'm going to make several dolls like this for the December exhibition. I usually take around a week to make something like this, but I was very certain where I was going with it, so it all happened really quickly......once I started working on it, I didn't want to stop! All done in a day and a half.
This morning, the doll was partially done - one arm missing and all pinned together - after I fell asleep over it last night, but she looked appropriate nestled up to some fading roses.
As the light failed this evening, I managed to get a couple of pictures of the doll almost completed. I will take some better pictures tomorrow.
And here is the Sorrydoll with "Lilt", her alter-ego.
