The greatest creations are those that as you create them, you get lost in your thoughts, by the time you're tired of thinking you're holding in your hands, something from deep within...

Welcome inside my head, my heart...

Fan~Frieken~Tastic! ART!

Hi Everyone! We'll I have a few new pieces under way but I have not gotten to take pics yet. I will shortly, I promise! :)

I received two very special awards recently from my friend Cindy. I'm totally honored and completely flattered that she thought of me for both! Wow! Thank you sooo much Cindy!!! She's new to blogging, please help me welcome her and her awesome work into blogland! She is really something wonderful!

The Bella Sinclair Award…is a very special award and the person it was made for is a very special woman. She is a sister-friend, a talented artist, A great mom, a poet, a mental ninja, a muse, beautiful, a genius, and her friend-sister Ces created it for her.

Read the full article HERE.

The Byrum Spiritual Award means
“You make a difference … I know, because you have for me!”

There are quite a few people that fit both award descriptions! I guess I'll have to narrow it down (for now!) so, I'd like to pass these awards to my very special friends, Sherry, Jean and Judy.

Judy & I met a few years ago on BPCAG; our beginner group. She helps us all on a daily basis. She's been a great friend to me and is always so helpful. She also is very new to blogging.

I have got to share this with you. My group recently had a dragon challenge, I didn't get to participate but the entries were all terrific. Judy's piece won and in a minute you will clearly see why. Her newest sculpture is amazing and incredible. Think I'm kidding? I'm not! I have gotten so many emails from people thinking I created this piece, it's very close to my heart and I wish I could say I did, but alas I did not!

It's unbelievable and truly unique. Ready for this?
It's a dragon, but not quite.. It's dead, his remains.
An amazing creatures bones!

A visual?.....

A long life, with many battles... a once strong being, glides into this spot to rest, he's tired, frail and weak. He rests his head on a rock and diminishes. A beautiful creature has fallen, his bones left behind, showing his amazing structure and feats.

An unbelievable and amazing piece.

Congrats Judy :)

If you love her piece as much as I do, or even shed a tear because of it, maybe pop over to her blog and let her know that you enjoyed her work. :)

Thank you to both ladies! And thank you all for helping me welcome them into blogland in celebrating incredible artwork!

BIG hugs,

Now you know why I thought that piece was yours... it is so melancholy and moving. Very evocative and I actually did tear up, sentimental goof that I am. I did not know Judy had a blog... I'm on my way to visit her now. Thanks Sprite.

Love the awards - well done! fab dragon - will go check out her work. And thank you for giving me hope and inspiration and an excuse for my clumsyness! you rock! :O)

Sprite - you know you mentioned 'things happen for a reason'? well, I'm so glad the pixies fractured my ballerinas finger and broke the dowel - I would never have come across your friends website - her shop is fab - I have been trying to find a good online shop which holds all the stuff I need in one place, which is not a 'large global company' I also noticed the brass dowels - now they would never snap eh!
Fab find - thanks!!

Sprite said...

Thanks all!! :) Abi, thats what I was envisioning inserting if you were able to drill ;) They sure don't snap and are what many use to attach their pieces to a base and be removable. You insert the hollow tube into the leg and sculpt around it without covering the hole and put the rod which fits into the tube, into the base and slide her right onto it :) Have fun shopping, it's certainly one of my favs!

Big hugs,
