"Even Mermaids Do Yoga" is another mermaid who came out of nowhere. In this always surprising process of creating these figures every now and then a mermaid pops up. So here she is, doing yoga, with a sand dollar around her neck.
"A Little Bird Told Her" wears a felted beret and her yellow boots and is a bird lover and listener. She wears a necklace of glass beads and a knitted sweater. She is my bird watcher and is my thank you to all of those beautiful songs I hear every morning when I walk in the woods.
"Olivia's Hen" came out of nowhere also. When I sculpt I start with the head and the rest is dictated by the personality that is revealed on the figure's face. In this instance I started with the pose but I had pictured the figure holding something completely different. The next thing I know there is a little girl with a chicken on her head. She reminds me of the little bantam hen I had growing up in Montana.
