Say "Hello" to Uncle Sam

Wow, is it really 4th of July weekend already?! That means my first Fall show is under 3 months away...yipes! I've been so busy with Halloween creations that I almost forgot to create any patriotic art this year. But, just in time...here is Uncle Sam in his watermelon car.



Sam is hand sculpted from papier-maché and paper clay. His watermelon car rolls on wooden wheels. I was inspired to make this piece by a vintage postcard that I had found online. I've always loved the idea of traveling "by fruit!" And with it's low emissions, this method of transportation is definitely "green"...HA!

Uncle Sam is available for purchase in my ETSY shop

Have a wonderful 4th of July!!!!!
