Two Curious Onlookers

There are two creatures witnessing this picture.  One, from above, one below.  First curious onlooker:

. . a little plastic skeleton my wife planted in my studio,
looking down from over my art table.

Lately i've been trying to do more frequent posts, but only of one or two images.

But for this post, i've indulged in several more pics of it, mostly to show some texture that got lost when i first posted this image many years ago.

Obviously this is fabric, but there's also some goofy addition, acrylic, cinnamon, sea sand, fixitave, and even some glue. Detail that gets usually lost when it's usually scanned or photographed.

Though it's technically not one of my stronger faces, i was going for some of that 'ugly grace' that Egon Schiele's women seem to possess.  Not comparing my and his work, but you probably know how i meant that.  Just as an example of style.     

It's quite a bit larger than what i usually stuff,  as you can see from the Pink Shades Dude on the right, for size comparison.

Which brings us to our second curious little onlooker . . 

. . down in the left corner.

I just wanted to let you know that you are already my favorite artist of my lifetime, and then I see you mention Schiele here in your blog post. He is one of my favorite past artists. You can not be any greater in my book, for what that is worth haha.

I'm satisfied to see more frequent updates of less images. Not that you need to make ME or anyone else happy, but I'm just adding my two cents if you aren't sure what people prefer about your updates.
