A little sawdust and paint . . .
is where this project began. Unless I run into some unforeseen difficulties (like last time with the box I began and have yet to resolve a construction issue), this is the start of my piece for the Teddy Bear Artist Invitational Gallery.
Progress is measured & it comes backwards. I begin with an idea of how I want the end to look and then start revising. That’s the challenge, of course – not to do something that should have waited until you do something else first. So it’s this whole reverse stages thing – hence the backwards progress.
These photos aren’t terribly exciting or colorful because those things come in nearly at the end when all the bones of the project have been placed – things like hiding where something is attached or layering the paper.
And then there’s the computer work – it still amazes me how much I depend on the computer/printer for these pieces.
It’s sorted in my head and in parts and pieces on my desk. Now I’m off to make some real (backwards) progress that I’ll be happy to show you as it comes together.
