Amelia the Princess Rabbit
My 10,000 hour journey
“Amelia, the Princess Rabbit” is part of my 10,000 hour journey. That’s the number that Malcolm Gladwell shared in Outliers as the time that is takes to master a skill. For every hour that I spend with my sculptures, I gain new abilities to bring the vision that rests in my head to my hands.
I have found many great resources to help me on my journey and one I am very appreciate of at the moment is Christine DuMont’s course “Ways to Wow” on Voila. It is 6-month exploration of emotion in art that has really helped my think about technique, flow, color, and proportion in my work.
The curse of of this journey is that as I get better, I am never happy with anything I have done before. Amelia is a great example. She is actually a do-over of “Crimson.” And “Crimson was a do-over of my fantasy vampire rabbit sculpture.
Voting is Open
The theme for my guild’s challenge this month is “Inspired by a Story or Book.” Amelia really fit the bill so I selected this work as my entry. Public voting is open from September 1-7 and would love for you to take a look at the wonderfully creative entries.
