This was supposed to be a quick and fun 2-day project. You would think I would know myself better than that my now. Sheesh...
I keep adding to her and bit by bit she is coming along. I have found that by working up from the bottom it is easier to integrate the details into the clay so that's why her upper half is so plain compared to the bottom. Apoxie can be unforgiving, so I am trying to control my impatience to get to the branches, no matter how annoying those wires get.
And a back view. The turntable has been a huge help in keeping her looking balanced and in proportion from all sides.
I probably won't finish her before I leave for Iowa, but I won't complain. Having something absorbing to work on is helping me stay focused on life here, which is good because I don't leave for another 4 days. Only 4 more days - woo hoo!
