My latest batch of pumpkins! i make pumpkins when i don't know what to make, or i'm too stressed out. by the time i finish one or two pumpkins, i feel better and can move forward again. i'm grateful for these little gifts from my squash friends. plus they're so adorable!! i love these little cuties.

Here's my most recent elephant. you may be surprised at how small this one is, as i was working on a big sculpture. unfortunately, i have scrapped two attempts at a large sculpture. my heart just wasn't in it. which surprised the hell out of me. i finally realized, with all that has been on my plate recently, i'm a little burnt out on sculpting. at first i was a bit scared amd confused, but in time i came to understand that this will eventually pass and i will sculpt again. in the meantime, i will continue my creative explorations in other ways and trust that i will return to making elephants when the time is right again.

Sometimes being a ceramic artist is heartbreaking. very bummed i broke my favorite freak this morning. i will glue her back together and hope she'll look fabulous again! 🀞

I started a new elephant sculpture yesterday!! i'm stretching myself in two ways with this one. this will be my largest elephant and i'm sculpting solid. that means i will cut it apart, hollow it, and reassemble when the sculpting is finished. i usually sculpt hollow so this is something new & different. i'm looking forward to the journey.

Last week in printmaking, i learned how to create drypoint etchings. it's a great medium for my doodles. i am definitely enjoying the different processes in printmaking. i had no idea how physically labor intensive printmaking is. this took me almost three hours to draw and another three hours to print an edition of four. totally understand why prints can be so pricey!! #doodle #freak #studentwork #drypoint #etching #prinmaking #makeart #createjoy

Here are the prints i presented for my midterm this week. (i can't believe semester is half over!!) the first two are linoleum prints. the first was my artist proof. i decided to keep carving to remove the excess lines. then, i didn't like it, so i experimented with adding color with a monoprint.
the 3rd is a 3 color reduction print. it took a huge amount of brain power to figure out the process. i'm very happy how this turned out. 🐘
the 4th is my first attempt at woodcut. can you tell i had very little inspiration that day? lol!
