Chicken Lips a Buzzing!

The new issue of Arts a Flutter has been released. I struggled with what to create for this July edition. I knew it should be summer themed, but with Halloween and Christmas always on my mind, it's hard to break out of the habit of reaching for clay and instantly diving into yet another Pumpkin or Santa. And then inspiration hit...literally...on my nose! I was in my workshop when a bee landed on my nose...about scared the pants off me! Lucky he chose not to sting me, but instead simply flew away back from where he came. But, he left me with an idea! So, I got out the clay and Bee Boy was born!

He's made of paperclay on a wood base, approx. 16" high. Thankfully, the inspiration bee wasn't this large! Buzz on by Arts a Flutter and take a look!
