Have been noodling for a while with the thought of messing with Matisse's "Dance" as a sculpture, plus stitching a figure is a relaxing occupation for some reason.
I tried to make this one bigger than previous other figures I have made, but realise now she is about the same size as usual.
It is perhaps a "prototype" - maybe at ArtSkool I can make a group of very big and very angry? women stamping about, or just having fun - but that might not be Arty enough......but as I often am "angry" it may bleed thru whatever I intend.
Fate is taking a bashing at the mo about my kids and their kid living so far away............But working with what I have got, a room of my own, a mind of my own etc. I must motor on and enjoy the scenery while I can.Splashed a bit more on mother's portrait which make sit look a bit more inhabited, if not by my actual mother. A friend of ours died this week so we have adopted that 1000 mile stare of persons reminded of their mortality perhaps.
