little "Flower Child"

We are having an unbearable summer weather wise here in WI. Heat and Humidity is very high making it impossible to be outside and enjoy summer recreation. I have made lemonade from lemons in this situation. Staying indoors has got my creative juices flowing. I took a class at the Internet site "Artful Gatherings, looked at some art books, mags and spoke to other creative beings and I am  into my art once again. Little flower child is a Whimsical creature made during my Internet class with Christy Meyers. She is made with a base of Styrofoam covered with creative  paperclay, painted, stained and varnished. I have recycled jewelry and netting to give her her own individuality. This technique was new to me and as I looked at her smiling back at me she mimicked my thoughts "Mistakes are doorways to discovery." May all your mistakes bring aha moments and smiles.
