OK, time for something totally different. I am working on commissions for dolls and need a little break. I am looking at my Circus/Carnival Characters that I did for the Children's Museum of Indianapolis. They were done to be part of an Exhibit of Alexander Calder's work-especially his Circus themed works. My pieces are collaged monotypes in 3D form so they are peaking out from behind their borders. I put them in gilded shadowboxes that I made. Each of the smaller pieces is about 2x3 feet big and the biggest piece is 3x4 feet.
It was a very colourful show and I loved Calder's pieces from his larger mobiles to his little paintings. What did I love best? Photos of his studio! Why? Because it was the biggest mess I have ever seen! Ha! It makes my messes look just silly. There was even some film footage of him in his studio with a friend who is saying something about the mess and Calder is just laughing about it. I love that too! So here's to making art and plenty of messes while you go!
