Hi blog friends!
Happy Wednesday! I'm sorry for my family and friends in Massachusetts because I hear you got slammed pretty hard with snow. Luckily, I am not completely slammed. They've been shoveling and sanding constantly hear in Alfred. This cold weather has given me a chance to work on art and stay inside!
Here's the deal: Everyone picks a string! We're taking a painting from history and making it into a sculpture. This sculpture is hanging, suspended in midair. We have half a block to work on this project (a few weeks) and we're going to do it up.
The painting I've chosen to work with is Le Garre de Saint Lazare coming into the station. It's a work that I've actually worked with before in high school but I often forget about. I forget because it isn't my favorite, it's one of my grandfather's. I'm excited to take a piece and build it out like this.
We take the painting, and sculpt it using paper mâché and lots of cardboard. I'm really excited because we're about to make a very messy studio. I'm going to work on it over the weekend, I don't have a major product to show you now but I'd like to show you something else!
I made an origami flower bouquet in the last few days. I hope to sell these eventually. This one is more the size of a bridesmaid bouquet rather than a bride's bouquet so I think I'm going to expand the next one to be larger. I'm so pumped to make more of these in the future!
