Finally, I have returned!

Well, this blogging stuff is harder than I realized. I thought that since I spend considerable time daily online, this would be easy, but I was dead wrong. I now have more respect for those able bloggers out there that blog daily or even weekly. I must be too ADHD or something...I get so distracted once I get online. Before I know it, hours have passed and I have not done anything but sit and stare at web sites, reading about this 'n that! So, I am going to try to do better.

I tried to do a paper mache rabbit and I think he turned out pretty nice, but I just can't seem to get motivated to get him painted. So I figure if I put him up on my blog, then I will be SHAMED into giving him his personality with some paint.

So here he is.....
First picture shows him being assembled. He has a paper clay face and head on a paper mache body.

Next pic shows him getting his arms, ears and legs and feet. Here I am hoping that he will stand up by himself when he gets all assembled.

Then he is shown standing with his new legs and feet attached. Notice the pad he is standing on. That was the only way to make him stable enough to stand alone. I figured it was okay and I could cover it up with raffia or something later.

Finally, here he is in all his glory!!! He has his base coat of gesso on and is ready and waiting for color. He was originally going to be made for Easter but I blew that, so now I think he will become a Halloween Bunny all decked out in black and orange. How fun can that be?

Let me know what you think. I could really use a little input and maybe a push to finish this cute little fella.
