Gotcha! This piece was inspired by how quickly time can sneak up on you! Remember that birthday of mine? LOL. I actually had him all sculpted before that, but didn't have him painted yet. It's taken me a while to get back into the groove of things this week!
Gotcha the grim reaper hangs on the wall. There is a hook already in his back for easy hanging. He is 8 1/2" tall x 3"wide x 2 1/2" deep. He has a vintage watch piece for his eye, screws in his jaw (reminds me of the snake bite piercings!) a gear that acts as the button to hold his robe together, and a vintage watch face, entire watch piece with it's tiny rubies intact, and a spinner. He is entirely hand sculpted out of paper clay over an armature. His hands are epoxy, He is hand painted and sealed. The title, date and my signature are on the back. He's available in my ETSY SHOP :o)
Hope everyone has a great Mardi Gras weekend! Can't decide if we're going to venture to downtown St. Louis or not tomorrow, it's a wild time for sure! Whatever you decide to do have a creative, fun, fantastic one! xo Michele
I'm like most artists, I've been creating something for as long as I can remember. I have explored many types of media and love experimenting with new things. Mixed media seems to be where my heart belongs. I can combine my love of painting, sculpting, adding found object all into one. The Steampunk Soul series evolved after I took a job with a corporation--the Soul Sucker. I hope you enjoy my artwork! xo Michele
