I knew what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to rescue a design, rework it and make it become something else. I began knowing that I would change the arms of the earlier design. Sounds easy huh? Well, many hours, several designs, attaching and detaching as I went along and getting a huge case of the 'frustrations' and I was still working on arms.
Finally, in a fit of peak I decided to not use arms at all. So there! Take that you hard-to-deal with piece of cloth and stuffing!! Of course she looked bare and barren. It finally came to me -- since she is supposed to be a 'spirit' of sorts why not give her wings.
At this point I'm sure the poor thing was getting a bit worn. I'm not sure she's learned to use her wings because there she sits. Perhaps she's wondering how she can 'seek beauty' while sitting on the shelf of my studio.
