Serendipity The Seraph Surrender Serpent :P


 first got a peek at Serendipity (one of my muses) while in a daydream one day a couple of years back.  His image was a bit fuzzy at the time, but he later showed up on a piece of paper.  Now; finally, he's slowly but surely revealing his 3-D form to me in my studio.  His-s (oops - Freudian slip) wings are flying around up there as I type.  I can't wait to introduce you to him, but in the "nice" (not mean) time let me tell you a little about him.
  1. He doesn't take life seriously.
  2. He makes the most of mistakes and finds them perfectly acceptable.
  3. He thinks everything works out for the best.
  4. He encourages creative experimentation and exploration.
  5. He helps time fly when you're creating (or having fun).
  6. He has a fraternal twin brother named Simon (more about him at another time).
  7. He adores his sidekick, Fortunato (the Italian white mouse riding in the gondola on his tail) - I know what you're thinking, but don't you worry - he would NEVER eat Fortunato (Lucky) because he knows if it weren't for him, luck wouldn't follow him wherever he goes.
As soon as he's finished revealing himself to me - get your mind out of the gutter :( - I'll post a photo.

Desert Daydream

Here's a fun little guy that escaped from my imagination while taking an online papier mache class with Marlaine Verhelst.  His name is Darius (approx. 17" x 20").  I had made him a furled magic carpet to lay across his golden sand base (it'll be on wheels), but I didn't like it, so I need to decide whether I want to make another one, or forget the idea all together.  I'll post more pix soon.

Take care,
Daydreamer :)

Fresh Start for a New Year

The slate's been wiped clean as we start a new year.  We know it's just a man-made measurement of time, but there's something inspiring about fresh starts.  It's like staring at a blank sheet of paper, canvas, or lump of clay... inviting, yet intimidating... the excitement of possibilities and the fear of failure coexist in our minds.  How is it two completely opposite thoughts can dwell in the same space?  Maybe it's what keeps us balanced and we mustn't allow that fear to block us from creating... and we must remember it's never too late for a fresh start.

Here's to finding balance in our creative endeavors - CHEERS!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!! :D
