Gotcha!


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

Oh wow! He has amazing detail. I am of the age where this one is a little scary too. I remember my mom always saying when I was younger, don't wish your life away. Boy was she right. ha ha Time just goes faster as you get older. That little guy is creeping around my house for sure!
