CHALK ART: "Postcard # 28"

Here is my first chalk "Postcard" for the new year. It was 50 degrees yesterday...last night we got a little dusting of snow. I finished up on the chalk drawing this morning in the garage with a space heater. Just another January in Kansas.

SCULPTURE: "Smoke Dragon"

Here's my latest sculpture project...a Chinese Dragon appearing from a swirl of smoke. I'm not sure I succeeded in creating what I envisioned in my minds eye. Smoke vapors are not the easiest to sculpt. But I'm pleased enough with how it turned out. It was fun doing the research on the various styles and colors of Chinese dragons. They are considered to be friendlier than Western depictions of the fire-breathing winged sort. I used Ave's Epoxy clay, and Super Sculpey.
