I was driving home on a summer's evening and this view caught my eye. I rushed home at lightning speed, or as fast as my little car would go on narrow country roads, rushed back and caught this image.

Chickens seem to be very popular, so I've had a bit of fun here with my series of chics. I've made a mold and they're cast in plaster, so moving into new realms for me. I've been able to find the feathers from my "collection" when I was involved in bridal wear, as well as scouring the fields of friends and neighbours who have exotic birds and regular farm chickens.

She's already checking out the travel guide for the next place to visit. A very kind lady I met at an exhibition months ago, mentioned that she had a couple of bags of pieces of fabric. A couple of weeks ago she dropped them off at the Gallery Contemporain, to which I belong, without even leaving a phone number for me to call and thank. This figure is resting on a piece. I've met so many very kind and thoughtful people over here. This figure is using a piece to lie on. SOLD

I have made this constant gardener relaxing, sitting on a wall and looking over her domaine, enjoying her gardening and all the work and effort she's put into it over the time. She has three little birds hiding in her hair and a frog cheekily checking out the scenery.

Here is the detailed version of my second in the series of the constant gardener. She has 3 little birds hiding in her hair and a frog very cheekily checking out the scenery from the brim.

My constant gardener is 127cm tall, mixed media and I just love her. Her hair springs forth from the centre of her hat and she has all sorts of interesting birds and even a cat in the garden on her hat. A source of constant observation and discovery, just like my garden. SOLD

I've done something new here placing the sculptures in a frame so that they can be hung on a wall. The two ladies are exceptionally good rock climbers - note the pockets for the powder, the rope and they're both stretching to reach the fasteners lodged in the rock. Rather them than me, but they certainly are having fun. The frame is 53 X 53 cm
I envy her, with nothing to do! She is 35 X 19 cm, plaster covered with paper mache. The only colour being the beach chair supporting her back.

Margo is knitting the finishing touches to the band of her skirt, frying an egg, taking care of her baby on her back and then the cat chose to sleep at her feet! The base is 9 X 5 cm and she is 14.5cm tall. Price upon request.
