New Project……Sculpture Meets Photography | Maryland Photographer

2014 is the year for me to get back to my roots – as I have said, several times this past week 😉

 

This is a tiny peek at my new project.  I will show bits and pieces of the process, and then I will unveil the first of what hopefully will be 12 parts to a themed art exhibit.   This will be true mixed media.  I used to paint and sculpt when I was much much younger, so it’s great to be digging my hands into this once again, combining my photography with some of my original art.   A true mix of light, form, shape, etc. will be developed out of this project.

Ever wonder why I cannot keep my nails nice?  Yeah.. 😉  Below is the very basic shape taking place… quite a bit more to go.  The clay has to remain wet for days as I work with it.  Lots of smoothing to do, lots of detail to “chisel”.

I know, you all are looking at this like – what in the world is she doing?  I’ve envisioned this for years.  I’ve discussed it with only a select few.  As I post more on this, you will start seeing it come together and understand where this is going.  Promise 😉
