It's Mon(k)day alright!

I have started on a really fun project:

A monk sculpture! I have to see how these strange looking men will do as sculptures, so last week I started with some cardboard, wire, plaster and clay, and this is how far I've come.  I've totally forgotten how great fun it is to make art in 3D!

So far so good. 

So far so good. 

It will be exciting for me as well to see how this monk turns out when I'm done. If this will be the template for future sculptures and if I'll continue using these materials, I'm not sure. Time will tell. But one thing is for sure; these monks have come to stay. On my canvases, in my motives, as sculptures....and in other art pieces I haven't come up with yet. Amen!
