Today is my Birthday

The photograph on the right was the first one I worked on but after I got to this point I was not happy with the fabric. I always hate to give up but I seem to be able to finally come to the conclusion when enough is enough.

I started over again this morning. I knew that I was going to before I entered the studio. I thought about it a lot last night, looked at the photos I always take of my progression and made the decision to start over.

My biggest decision other than the change of fabric was to work with the negative space. Sometimes I find it much easier to see the negative space. When the Batman icon was put out there years ago, it took me months to finally see the bat. Sooo, I decided that I was going to take the shapes of the shadows and try to sculpt the tree stump. I'm pretty happy so far, it has a long way to go but I feel good about the beginning.


  1. Happy Birthday Marilyn...a day late...funny you should mention the Batman logo...I have never tuned into it easily...took me years to recognize it...

  2. I'm so glad to hear that Judy. I wonder how many other people had that problem?
