Lydia's Dragon Tree

My oldest daughter Lydia is 20 years old and will be a junior in college this year. She went with me to Washington last weekend and this is what she made in Jean's class. I'm her mom, so of course I think she is amazing, but keep in mind that she has never ever sculpted before.

It was difficult to find a camera angle that shows this piece at its best, so I have included several views. From the back left...


... and facing full front. I love that dangle!

Right rear profile. Here you can see the perfect beads she chose for his eyes as he is gazing from under his wing.


And finally the right front profile.


I love the deliciously twisted way her brain works!

Lydia
that is some Cool dragon and you are most creative - in fact for your first sculpture you ROCK!! Your use of colours is amazing absolutely adore your dangle and those wings they are sooo cool!
Judi - Lydia is very very creative that is an amazing sculpture she has made - the genes in your family continue into the next generation I hope we get to see much more from Lydia in the future it would be a shame if this girl didnt continue on wouldnt it??

Great Pictures JudiA! It was a PLEASURE to meet Junior and of course see you again! you both wow'd me in class! Junior was fresh meat and boy did she perform ! She has talent and I hope she continues with her art. The sketches she brought to class gave me goose pimples! You both are jewels and was so thrilled to be part of your weekend.
