Is there any way to make a living off of felting? Because I am seriously enjoying it more than almost anything else except for working with tin, cooking, drawing, ok, maybe it isn't my secret calling. I will never be called a Specialist. I am a Generalist, a I-Know-A-Little-About-A-Million-Different-Things type of person.
Sculpting that is so immediate and only held back by the imagination is so satisfying. This is supposed to be a dog, but Trevor thinks it looks like a goat. Hmmm. I think i depends on the angle.
I have been working on these felted critters to take to my niece and nephews in Dubai. I will have to be very firm, however, in letting them know these are art and not toys. I think they will get it; they are smart kids. This Sea Monster for Zayd took me over 15 hours to make! (But I watch a lot of movies while I am making them.)
It's the biggest thing I have made yet with needle felting.
And this little alien just makes me giggle. I really want to keep it for myself.
I like looking at them in groups.
My sister just emailed me and suggested bringing my metal snips and shears with me in case I find any cool tin over there that I want. I didn't even think of that! If I can find tin with Arabic or Hindu writing, I will be pretty excited. I hope 3 suitcases between two of us is enough! I will toss out clothes before art and jewelry supplies.
