Inspiration vs copying art
It has come to my attention...again that some folks, two to be exact, can't seem to find their own idea's to sculpt. I am totally ok with inspiration. I find it myself where ever I go and somehow maybe without even knowing it its incorporated into my art. For example, two weeks ago I received this utterly amazing "cheesy" grin from someone I adore. The next day... A Santa with my version of that same "cheesy" grin appeared out of clay. That is art. That is being inspired. Copying someone's hard thought out designs is just plain rude. Its stealing. Would you come to my home, open my door and take what you think is yours? I would hope not. So please, after one year of these shenanigans... stop. Find your own way. Sit and draw out your art before you sculpt. Like I do. Get off the internet and work. You might be amazed at how creative you really can be :)
The last sale I had was a hit! Hurry, as these are one of a kind pieces. I recently added lots of new Halloween art and some cactus pieces...
