I finished her just in time for Halloween. She has a staff of purple heart and a gourd purse for collecting mushrooms.

Bear Shadow

Bear Shadow

The Bear Shadow is here again in the mountains. He visits for a time in October and a time in February. It's the shadow of Whitesides Mountain which is sacred to the Cherokee. This area was all part of the Cherokee Nation in the 18th century.

This is the new witch I'm working on.
She will be a little bigger than Baba Yaga.

Something New

Old crone

Her better side

I decided to try something new and take a sculpture class. My friend is teaching it and we started yesterday. The assignment was to make a witch and I didn't know if I would like sculpture, but I love it! She is going to be Baba Yaga and I am making her house with chicken feet as well. I'll finish her in class tomorrow.
