something different

moving away from the soft fabrics of yesteryear like linens, velvets and lace to the hardness of chicken wire and metal mesh to form paper mache sculptures. Alan Gerson our friend and lover/husband of Frances, is teaching us his secrets to perfect paper mache sculptures. This will be a several day process , but I am already loving the "hands on" photos and organic process of this artform. Stay tuned

Is that Alan Gerson's house in Brenham that I enjoy looking at when traveling through that town? If so, tell him I love it! Thanks.

And thanks for the peek into your art in progress.

Wow, this looks like so much fun!!! I'm off to a print-making workshop this coming weekend and am already excited about the new things I'm going to be learning in a hands-on environment. Thanks for sharing yours!

Oh how beautiful! Artistic diversions can lead to new discoveries about ourselves and inspire our artwork to take a new path. I want to see what the heart looks like after you've completed it. :)

Hi, Found your blog at Garden Antqs. Vintage and saw you making paper mache. Will you share some of your techniques? I make life-sized paper mache sculptures and you can see them in some of my older blog post from Nov. 2008.
