Pumpkins… and more birds.
And a little about the process of creating.
I started making pumpkin dolls about two months ago, specifically for the upcoming lovely dark holiday… I was about half way finished with these beguilers, when a whole other little world started developing in my brain, or rather a continuation of one… and I needed to work on that as well. Winged birds standing alongside un-winged birds, standing alongside wing-ed semi-human forms, standing alongside something that is perhaps something in the middle or perhaps it’s own other thing entirely. And here we are. They all coexist in, i don’t think exactly the same place, but close by.
Here are some of the pumpkins…
and here are some of the rest of the Birds of Seldom.
i don’t feel as if I’m quite done with this world. I don’t think I’ve quite left yet. The manic feeling I get when working on these dolls hasn’t subsided and I feel a certain frenetic energy and need to keep going. I think as the days get shorter and darker, I am pulled more inward. I also have a need to for a new group of beings that started coming to me last month while on the seacoast. I’m not sure who will come next. Really, I just wish I didn’t need to sleep, or brush my teeth, or eat so that I could just stay in my world and make dolls all the time.
but, my dentist wouldn’t be happy about that.
stay safe and well, and enjoy these beautiful darkening days.
