Roman Angel

My Mom and I went to Italy together about 10 years ago, and we loved Rome.  I've had in the back of my mind for a while to make something for her inspired by this piece of Kate Thompson's ever since I saw it.  So for her birthday this year I finally did it (one advantage of her currently not having Internet is I can post this even though I haven't given it to her yet!).  

It occurred to me to take progressive pictures of it, I love when other people do and I've never thought of it in time to do it before.  These aren't at specific stopping points so much as just when I remembered.  It's plaster on cradled wood, and turned out to be more of a project than I anticipated, mostly because I kept changing my mind about what I wanted to do.

I've been playing in my fabric art journal this week, with a few pages kinda started, but lots of ideas.  I do have one completed spread, reflecting what I suspect is going to be a brief hummingbird phase, inspired by a picture on the back of one of my company's quarterly "what's going on at all the locations" type of magazines. The last place I'd have expected to find inspiration...

It was a lot of fun...
