Progress is very slow, especially when it pains the heart!
I have wrote a few enteries about the shell that my dad found at the beach that just had to have a mermaid on it….(a big breasted mermaid at that!) I think that he would have been happy with her! LOL!!
Well, I still am working on it… slowly. I pick it up and look at her, and my heart just aches for him… I still just can not believe that he’s gone; just like that, gone…. I received a beautiful bracelet (a memory bracelet) that had Swarovski stones for his birthday month. I tried to match the color of the swarovskis with the mermaid’s tail and hair….
(((SIGH))) see, it just pains my heart! LOL!! but I am happy to report that I have made some process over the weekend. I just sat down and decided that I need to complete her and pass her on to my dad’s wife Carrie. She’s going to love her…. maybe not all of her, but most of her I am sure that she will be pleased with! LOL!!
Here are the before pics:
I really am getting excited about getting her finished…. SLOWLY! I want to add some shading to her and a few touch-ups here and there… and find a way to attach her to the shell without breaking her and making it look too fake. (like it really matters how fake she looks, she is fake! LOL!!)
It’s the first time I have ever made a mermaid before (full sculpt)…..and I have to say that I really did enjoy the process of figuring things out. I looked and stared and studied mermaids, till I was dreaming of them! and that is not such a bad thing.
I happened to find my brother’s my space today. On his page he has a pic of him as a little boy with a picture of my dad….
His smile was contagious… and so was his hissing laugh! LOL!! …..
Time….. I know it just takes time…. Progress, it is slow, in so many ways – but you just have to put one foot in-front of the other and slowly get to where you need to be, one baby step at a time….
