Lighter than light
They have a very earthy feel, as you can probably tell. I went pretty heavy into the texture and hope they end up in some room where there's a wall space just waiting for them. I could have spent more time on the clouds in the beachy one, but since it's Thursday and I have to leave early tomorrow a.m., I once again, decided less is more. The ivoryish one is a little cave-like and the soapstone-y effect on the double looks like the entrance to my fantasy secret garden. I always loved the carving in some of the old soapstone vases we used to have...wonder where they are now? If they don't turn up, maybe I'll tackle making some as a fall 'spare time' project. Like spare time exists. Spare tire? Yes. But time?
Off to the Morden Corn and Apple Festival. I'm as corny as Morden in August....la la la.
