Farm Wife ~~ Monday


This little piece of sculpture, dated 1985, was made by our middle daughter in a college art class. I guess it's a pretty good depiction of Popa and me, although we're not quite that old looking yet ~~ I don't think ~~ and the hat would more likely be on me. I think it's a splendid work of art! She is very talented, and as a child, when playing with her sisters, she would be making something for the dolls to wear instead of just carrying the dolls around. Her talent must come from her daddy, for they both can do just about anything they set their mind to do.

To see more of her work, go to the second half of the post for Nov. 18, 2010, We need a House.

  1. That is a first class sculpture. Love your doll collection. Do you still have them and did you get a house?

  5. Wow! Your daughter's talents are amazing. That's a true treasure of a bust she sculpted. Her wood furniture looks so authentic for it to be doll size. Your daughter could take her gifts of sculpting, woodworking, sewing and design and rival dollmakers like Robert Tonner and Madame Alexander.
    It does my heart good to see such talent. You must be so proud.
    When I went to look at your wooden dolls, I enjoyed seeing all your beautiful quilts. How do you it?
    Looks like your daughter got her talents of creativity from you. Cool! :)

  9. This is wonderful, Charlotte! I took 4 years of art class but sculpture wasn't one of my strong points... :)

  11. Yes, she is very talented! My son did a sculpture of a fist when he was in grade school and it won a best of show ribbon at the county art show. It was just a fist with a thumbs up, but we were proud of him and I have it sitting on my entertainment center.

  12. Oh, I wish you would throw that thing away! LOL I saw the post and said "Oh no! You mean she still has that thing?" Really the only sculpture I ever made that I even halfway liked was that bust of Sitting Bull...it is sitting on my cabinet at work because it had no place else to go.
