WIP update, New WIPS and wishful thinking?

Hello everyone, been trying to stay busy and productive. Thought you might enjoy an update on the recently started WIPS.

The luminaria, and witch seem to be coming along just fine. I like the colors and patterns on the witch. Need to get her hat done, then I can get her opened up to work on the container part. The teapot is almost ready for paint. I put it aside to start some basic shapes to keep going once these are painted. I seem to work better and more productively if I have enough materials to keep shifting from one to the other. It also gives me a better feel for where a piece is going. I mean, If I get stuck on one I can alway switch to another, then come back. that way I don't feel unproductive and the flow keeps coming, in theory anyway, LOL. Sometimes you just can't get blood from a turnip!

One of the "other" pieces I started are my bunnies, very rough shape right now, gotta go back to the drawing board on them.

Luckily I found some fun bits and accessories for them that should point me in the right direction. I think the ears are too big!

Speaking fun bits, while making the rounds for those serendipitous treasures I cam across this little ditty.

Which leads me to wonder. Should I try growing him in the bathtub or the local swimming pool? I figure the more room to grow... LOL.

I guess that's were the wishful thinking comes in to play. I dare say I'm not the only one!

Lastly don't forget the EHAG Emporium Venue premiere sale this January 31st. Featuring many of our favorite and talented artist from EHAG. It will be a monthly event on every 31st of the month. Hope to see you there!!

Love the new pieces. That teapot is gonna be SO cool! And I LOVE bunnies. Can't wait to see your take on the big-eared hoppers.

Oh, and I vote bath tub. Really, how much boyfriend does anyone need? :)

I love your WIPS Jorge! I work in multiples too...always have several things beginning, several things ending, and several thing sin the middle...I have got to say it works for me..if I want to finish something to put up for sale on any given day I can...if I want to start a new exciting idea I works!
You could sculpt a prettier boyfriend than that! LOL!
Have fun!!!

I'm not usually a bunny fan - but I feel certain that yours will be uber fab!

Nice work Jorge! I think that potential boyfriend is missing a few important parts?

Hi Jorge,
Warm regards from sunny California (just been at gift shows and going to the CHA show in Anaheim this weekend). Crazy weather here. I'm from here originally. Never seen anything like this. Gonna need an ark pretty soon!
Love, love, love the bunnies. But then, I love all your work!
Hey, thanks for the nice comment on my blog. I will keep you posted on the shop progress.
Take care,

Oh I forgot...swimming pool. That way he is big enough so you can fix the missing parts.

Love the new bunnies!

And I agree with Will, I think the guy is missing some vital equipment.

Maybe you have to buy that separately as an "add-on" ;)
