What to reveal about Scarlet?
A little Sneak Peek --- A rose by any other name is still a rose. This means that no matter who he was before or what he has done, Scarlet acquired his name and simply has forgotten over time what he was called before.
Now, knowing this about him, if I render him with his fiery temper showing, who would want to be around that much fireworks? He finally agreed to show his sweeter side of his personality to me (but I had to let him know that if he didn't, I would sculpt his nose bigger than it really is).
As for what he does, he is the farrier for the Nytemares. What does that mean? (No, a farrier is not what you call a male Fae, they are still called Fae.) He creates the shoes for the Nytemares for their nightly runs.
The Art of Dance...
Micheal also has produced abstract paintings of his dance. Now it isn't so much the art itself that has captured my mind, but the way Micheal presents his art. He creates his art with the steps of his dance as he wears his dancing shoes dancing in the paint. This way the person who is viewing his art is seeing the energy that goes into creating those steps.
My hand waltzes along the jaw line of a head I am creating. My fingers flow from the top of the nose down and around the eye to pivot back around towards the ear. I stop and even might twirl the head from side to side as I see all the different perspectives being pulled together to create my character.
So often I say it is the process or the dance that is important to me, not so much as the finished piece. It is the experience itself of inner discovery and achieving a new exhilarating way of discovering something magical that didn't exist before I started. In the joy of the dance with myself and the character, we slowly come to a breathless halt. To take up the dance again in the next steps of the process.
Welcome to my blog. This is where I will reveal the magic of my Fae and their stories and share with you some of the success and pitfalls through the journey of doll making, sculpting, and other crafts that all come back to my dolls in many ways.
