Finished Commission and 5 more to go!
I am in a creative run of finishing commissions..I give myself this week as I have GOT to concentrate on the National Halloween Convention show with SpookyTime Jingles! Did I mention that before THAT I am flying to Jersey to see my favorite Jersey Girl on the planet...Ms. Dani Nelson!!? She and I have big creative plans and she is going to take this little southern gal on her virgin trip ( she's brave, huh?) into the city and we are going to the Tim Burton exhibit at MOMA! How excited am I and how much work do I have to do before then?? If I can just keep myself from running through the woods..this time of year its BEAUTIFUL here!!
I had way too much fun in the woods today...

Here are the type of convenient roots that are stairs for climbing up and out of steep creek banks..so interesting to me that they grew that way!

Angus bounds through the woods...we run together and I stop for photography breaks..so much fun that everytime I go, I wonder why I don't stay longer and come more often...

I literally go into a fantasy world...but it's real while I am there...vines and roots, sunlight and trees, rushing water over mossy rocks, and treefrogs that sing..., small bits of green popping up everywhere...early spring is a pure delight.

I did get some things squared away in the studio before my play...
Here is a little gift I made to send to a special buyer....



and here is a piece that is my largest shaker yet...I am so pleased that I have devised a new contraption for these..I built in an insert, a recycled thick plastic tube, to be able to attach and remove the shaker's stick. Also, this will make for much easier shipping, and storage. The pole fits tightly in the bottom, where there is the rest of that tube going inside the shaker where you can't see...

I love the hat on this one, especially the back side..

where the cat is flying through the air after bailing on the witch...

Just love the toothy grin!!

So glad to have this one done!!

Awesome, all awesomeness Bran! I love your svelte shadow pictures! The tree looks like its roots are arms holding onto the bank. Can't believe I haven't been there yet! Maybe after Jersy, you can tell me all about Tim Burton while we walk through your woods with Dumb & Dummer.
Hearts!~D

I was just at MOMA last week and could barely stand up in the Tim Burton exhibit, it was so crammed full of 12 year olds. Wear armor! The exhibit was really neat, though. You'll love it.

Eeeeeeeeeeeek! Look at these wonderful things :)

My sister Lisa's dog's name is Angus too :)

That tree's roots are so cool.

Please take lots of pics at the exhibit. I can't wait to see.

Looks like a fun romp in the woods! There is a sense of being in a different world you don't find in the city. Love your new creations Brandi! Have fun with Dani and yes, take lots of photos! Thanks for stopping by and leaving such nice comments, hugs, Sheryl
