I love it when art is inspired by words. It has been a long time since I sculpted in clay. I got myself in such a frenzy to create dolls that my granddaughter could play with,that so much of my work has been done in cloth recently. But clay is a love of mine. I love the detail you get from it.
Now It is of no concern to me how strange you think I am. I am from Roswell, NM… well close to Roswell. I love the alien festival, the Comecon, and the researchers. I love Star Trek, Star wars, and crazy haired ufologists. I love driving down main street Roswell, close to this sign,
and waving at the tourists using the Vulcan hand signal ” Live long and Prosper”. . My Favorite tourist of all time is the lady with the green hair, antenna and the live chihuahua head sticking up out of her cleavage. I am still looking for anyone to top that.
I love the wackadoo’s that come here from all over the country to see for themselves, for I too, am a wackadoo. I love Aliens. Not the kind that suck your brains out and abduct you and probe you, but the cute ones that make you wanna smile and that love Jesus as much as I do.
Again, whatever you think of me is none of my business.
I was inspired by a wonderful woman at our Church who has a magnificent testimony and a small affiliation with some sort of UFO researcher ( her hubby). This sculpt is for her. I wanted to make her smile and see if I can use it to bribe her into sharing her wisdom with me.
It is called ” The Discovery”.
