I'm going to play with watercolors for the first time in a long, long time. This will be fun. :)
I am very excited, my school is offering a couple of short classes in sculpture, one in mold-making and one in slip-casting. These are things I've wanted to learn, but that I haven't been able to fit into my regular ceramics stuff.
In ceramics this semester, we've only had two classes so far, but I've been able to make so many heads. That is my continuing goal; to learn how to properly sculpt human heads. Somehow, I improved a great deal since last semester; although I did not sculpt on the break, I did a lot of drawing and attempting to learn proportions. I also have been reading several books that discuss techniques by other ceramic artists. "The Figure in Clay: Contemporary Sculpting Techniques by Master Artists" has been VERY helpful.
I have six heads so far, varying from life-size to about 7" high, all in various stages of completion. And then our first project was announced yesterday, it involves majolica, and I can do a bust or head, so it won't interfere with my personal heads project.
I feel a sense of craving/ anxiety because I have to wait until next Tuesday to work on my heads, it is a really bad feeling. :( I am trying to distract myself by working on other projects, but it is not a good feeling. My sleep was terrible last night, and I kept thinking about my projects.

Oh, and when I did fall asleep, this was part of my dream: I rescued a gray and white cat who was heavily pregnant. Her stomach hung down and resembled a pregnant woman's belly, but on a smaller scale. It was almost translucent, and laced with large blue veins. Ugh. Eventually she gave birth, and later in the dream, I was picking at her nose. Her nose was dark gray, despite the fact that most gray and white cats seem to have pink noses. I was picking at her nose and it came off in a nose shaped peg. Picture a round peg that goes into a round hole. Like that, but the shape was the outline of a cat nose instead of round. And it was cat nose material, soft and gray and covered in cat nose peach fuzz, all over the peg, which was about 1 1/2" long. The inside of the hole it inserted into was lined with the same short, soft white fur on the rest of her face, and was surprisingly well-lit from inside. It made me uncomfortable to look at, and I slid it back in.


I've had a hectic, sleep-deprived week. Please be patient with me. :heart:
