Things are changing

It's been a while since I've been here. The weather has been great! This is the time we get our summer. I haven't sculpted in a while but I started to smoosh some clay together and actually made a couple of faces. I do have a plan for them, and it's an ambitious plan. That's all I can say at this point.

I get in a blue funky mood when I finish a piece and it takes a while for me to get back into the zone. It's coming though...I feel it. I either have to continually sculpt or go into hibernation. It takes weeks before I can touch the clay again. Any interruption can put me off track. Is that what they mean when they say an artist puts themselves into their work? It seems to be true for me. I put so much energy in, there's nothing left when I'm done! LOL I think this is why I don't do as many pieces as I would like. I'm sure I'm not the only one that goes through this.


  1. Judy, I can't wait to see what you have planned for those faces. Whatever you make will be gorgeous! Yeah, I totally know what you mean because I go through that same funk. I feel weird when I don't have the urge to sculpt, but I just can't force art.

  2. Hi Judy,
    I totally understand what you are going through! I hope you get in the mood. I found if I force myself to start again, I can't stop! Wish you the best.
