PS.... As an artist you fall in love with certain pieces because they are pivotal in your journey. As an assemblage artist in particular, I'm always learning new techniques on the hop. Many I create myself out of need. Oh you want hair to look like THIS, but what looks like THAT? Or you want a dress to fall a certain way... how do you do it? Well nessecity really does become the mother of invention here and then what you learn, you go on and use on upcoming pieces. Again you just love a piece because you can really see for yourself that you are improving. There is a saying that every artist believes their recent piece to be the best one.
WELL all told I PAINED over this girl... she proved extra demanding but I have to say I ADORE her. I've created two new techniques and solved one major technical problem I was having. If she wasn't an Assemblage Angel I'd NEVER let her go! I just love the look of her to boot!!
