Works in Progress, Summer 2015

Here is a creation I've been working at a while.  I put my chubby fingers in there to give a sense of scale.  I do like making these small dolls, but they present challenges because of the scale.  It is very easy to sand too much and lose an expression.  For this reason I plan to sculpt a larger doll, which I haven't done in quite a while.  

In order to be productive in this way, I've been trying to clean out yet again.  Some part of my creative process is the gathering of materials, and then the editing of materials.  It is very hard for me to not to be an artistic hoarder of possibilities.

While cleaning through my stuff, I found (again) the non-working 90's video cameras that have a tape stuck in them. I don't want to get rid of the cameras until I get the tapes out.  I can't get the tapes out. So I keep putting the video cameras back on the shelf. Multiply that one scenario a few times and you get the kind of STUFF that can accumulate. I am giving myself until the end of the month to get the tapes out of the cameras...and then what?  

I found a twist tie on my desk.  Why do I have that?
