It's been awhile since I have posted in my blog and one of my resolutions for 2019 is to do better with it! I have an idea of doing regular posts called "What's the Story?" and focusing on my limited collections, perhaps giving you a glimpse into what inspires them, a peek into works in progress, and maybe give you a chance to leave me some comments that give me insight into how you view my work.
So, I am starting with my Folklore Collection, the sterling pieces.
All of my life, I have been a voracious reader and I think the result of that is that my head is chock full of vivid impressions and images that leapt from the pages of those many, many books and stories. The Folklore Collection reflects much of my fantasy/fairy tale/ folktale reading.
Mischievous, graceful bunnies; so quiet and mysterious, but so brave in their own way. The clever fox, canine and feline all at once, and stunningly beautiful to boot. Elegant swans, who carry themselves so regally. All have been focal figures in legend and folklore through the centuries.
I have featured them all in this collection, and there is more to come. Stay tuned as I consider each of the collection's "stars," and talk about the works, the legends and the process.
