Well, it may be a new blog home but nothing's changed.....I've been distracted from the 'dragonthing' and the endless scaling by this lovely fat faerie who wouldn't stop beating on the insides of my eyelids until I acquiesed and let her out. I now have three pieces on the go (four, if you count the giant Griffon creature) and I also started a 2D piece earlier in the week. My optimism certainly does keep me amused! This faerie has been lovely to work on.....her hands are a bit of a challenge for me as I've not made such chubby fingers before and I really do detest making hand armatures but the hands are too heavy to get away without them. At this point she is telling me that she is a Queen, regal and indulged but slightly unsure about something.....just what should become clear as she progresses (I hope!).
It really has been a beautiful week. The weather here at the moment is just divine and I'm soaking up as much of it as I can....all too soon I'll be freezing and fighting off the numerous colds and sniffles that my lovely children bring home from school to share with me. A winter person I am not. Being back in the studio every day has been wonderful.....I feel like I have creative energy leaking from every pore! It's difficult to stay focused (nothing new there!) but for the moment I'm just going with the flow, enjoying the creative process and letting myself work in a fairly haphazard way. Like I've mentioned previously, after such a long break you're bound to get some backlog and my brain is teeming at the best of times. It does make for interesting days however and I can't ask for more than that.
Till next time.


  1. Lorel that is an awesome "Queen Faerie" Already she's magical!

    I wish I could be in Australia for a bit. Soak up some of your warm weather as it's not feeling like Spring here!

    Kids and colds... they were made for each other ~eh?

    Glad to see you back creating and feeling good!

  2. She is so charming, it´s going to be fun to see the progress and to see her finished.
