The New and the Old

It being Dec 31st you can't help but think of the old year you have left behind and the new one that is ahead. I have decided at least for awhile that I will make two post one about an old project and then one about a new project I am working on. If all go well you will see the cane grow from concept to completion. That's a little scary for me because what do I do if my cane turns out a complete bust? Well...hopefully we will all learn from my mistakes.

Ok now for the old. Here is a picture of my second face cane. I was trying to get a little more depth with shading around the jaw line and under the folds over her dress. I was pleased with the way she came out. I had intended to cut her away from the scrap clay I used when I packed the cane but I later decided I liked the look. Or maybe I was just lazy. You will find out as you get to know me that I am not great at finishing pieces. I like the creation of the canes but then I don't know what to do with them.
