Mermaid with Bottle 2015 by metalpug
Mermaid with Bottle 2015
I've been a bit blue over the slow movement of art for the past 8 shows.  I mean, this is a serious dry streak and most disheartening.  I haven't done much art.  This poor mermaid has been sitting half finished with my supplies for a month, at least.  She was made of leftover wire from prior projects; I finally decided that she needed to be her own person.  I found an earring when out walking the pugs which I made into her tail ornament; I was given a small perfume bottle which I have made her treasure.  Not sure what to name her yet...but she is very fluid and simple in a complex way.

I'm up to 47 of 50 llama badges -- almost to the next level. :)  I've given a few today, too.  There is some great art out there.
Bride 2 2015 by metalpug
Bride 2 2015
Finished a work that has been sitting here for a long time.  I started her with the GCAA opening reception March 5.  Been....unmotivated with the art.  However, this one just really wanted to be done.  The veil is a wrap from a mint from a high tea. :)  I wanted to go with the bridal idea so kept the colors very simple (lots of silver; she is a brunette).

Ireland by metalpug
Ireland
I ended up reworking a piece.  I had "The Bridge Between Time" as my first work for 2015.  She was being shown and when I brought her home I didn't pack her well enough; the filaments sustained a bit of damage.  Since she didn't get the praise I'd hoped, I ended up reworking her.  Though she was made on Friday the 13th, I'm calling her "Ireland" because her form seems to mimic the intricate landscapes that I see (green, ground, and even a bit of orange for the Irish Protestants....my family came from that line). Entering this for the Craftart March challenge.  I do like this work and I think that the Irish are, themselves, a bit of the magic.  This entry was made for #CRArtisanCrafts's challenge + March Artisan Crafts Monthly ChallengeIt's time again for another monthly challenge! This month we'll be doing luck-focused crafts. As always, the theme is open to the interpretation of all your creative minds!
