Who would have thought.
Little Evangeline the mouse, is still going about her business, living her life, immortalised (sounds very grand) in various sculptures that go to different people's homes.
Last week I sent off a new mouse to Australia, to a lady who commissioned an Evangeline to reflect a part of her own life.
The same lady bought another Evangeline to send to a special person in her life. In this one, Evangeline was doing The Tea Towel Dance.
I've always liked Evangeline's little dream world. Her escapism, which peppers her days of cleaning and tidying, really appeals to me.
Though my sculptures are changing.
I'm moving towards creating pieces that have more serious content, exploring themes that bear no resemblance to the world of childhood, which a lot of my sculptures might have leaned towards in the past, or been considered to be linked to.
Unfortunately I can't show you these new pieces, they are being created to go to various galleries, and I have to be all secretive about them, sorry about that. I will be able to show you photos of them eventually.
You know what? I think I've reached the end of this blog post, I've suddenly gone vacant. I think I'll head off now, my concentration has completely evaporated.
