New Papier Mache Artwork

I have been madly completing artwork for the show coming up on the 28th. So far have done three bowls and finished the Sitting Child Trudy…Have two more bowls waiting to be painted…And a goose to make for Ruth. Meanwhile, “The Book” is not yet printed, but it looks like it will be soon…The one poem I hate, Solo for Two, cannot be deleted, so I must settle for it staying in  but the other corrections were made. I wish I had not been told that the book needed no editing, which is patently silly, ALL books need editing! But that is what they told me, so I did not look at it again, until it was too late to do much. I should have known better! I ought to have known better, as that is precisely what Diane K, our erstwhile editor told us about Divided Minds, and so opted out of helping us. But nothing could have been further from the truth, and luckily we knew it. She was basically trying to sabotage the book, even Lynnie thought so. ARGH, that is water down the sluices…What is important now is that the corrections I really needed made in WE MAD were in fact made, and the one poem I do not like may in fact appeal to someone. So I will put up with that one poem staying in, and hope it does not mar the entire thing…

That said, here are the new art works, first the three bowls, which take about a day to paint each, more or less, and then Trudy, which took several months of intermittent work.

Trudy is about three feet tall but on her hassock is somewhat taller. I’d say she is about the size of a seven year old? But I dunno, since I haven’t seen a seven year old in a while. 8)
