Next in line is CHUNKIE Forest…Forest is an eco warrior and friendly angel who lives deep in the heart of the forest, she cares deeply for the environment, here she is ready and waiting for any who may stumble near….waiting with a cup of fairtrade tea and offering peace and friendship to all….she is here to remind us of how we must take care with our natural environment for the creatures, the wilderness and the future of our children…

Hand crafted from plasticine, her little outfit is made from dried out teabags which were fashioned into a hat and dress….behind her is a background of pandanus dried leaves i picked up near the beach and an assortment of dried leaves and twigs i collected over time, as well, the foreground is made from a beautiful piece of paperbark supplied to me by my father in law who is in his 80’s…who lovingly found and gave it to me, knowing that i collect special things like this…this is the first time i’ve been able to use it….thank you Grandad! The butterfly and birds were taken from my painting “Thoughts and Things” and the white flower is an old plastic earring….the teapot was given to me by my father who knows I collect tiny silver things like this…..from an op shop somewhere, thank you dad! The table is a cork!

Once the Chunkies are created and photographed, I usually dismantle them to be used in the creation of more chunkies, so I am recycling the plasticine. These Chunkies have been very therapeutic to create over the holidays, whilst taking a break from red bubble and having my family around. I have many more to come, and although I won’t be on RB as much, I hope to also be doing some serious painting this year…so i look forward 2009 with much anticipation …
