Thanks to RB for putting this on the homepage…this little person really has become me though this one expresses the fun and silliness…. Mermaid Sleep is certainly the thoughtful contemplative Soxy.

    I like this, is different and unique and beautiful use of colors.

    I think you are teaching us as new concept in art…
    …use of recycle paper, what a beautiful way of contributes to safe our trees!

  • thankyou mago, it is also a way to make art without spending money…it does take time though, both in gathering the raw materials and in working with the pulp. thanks for looking

    Hi and thanks for your visit!
    This is very lovely, i very much agree with Paul Compton’s comment
    and also like the paper you used; its texture is beautiful.
    Great choice.

  • The paper is really most of the work…I made the paper first and only later decided to try painting the figure which I could see emerging from the colours. Thank you very much for your nice comments
