Jessie 2005 12"h x 18"w x 8"d This figure was inspired by a turn-of-the-century French photograph. I was enchanted by the sensitivity and grace of her self-arrangement, and I decided to do a study -- but there were problems. She is so lightly aloof, and with such effortless presence it seemed she could simply float away. So I gave her some wings just in case -- besides which, she wanted them. Nor is she so aloof that she cant be easily engaged, and as charming of her person as of her form. Ive found her a delightful and informed companion, and weve shared many hours of quality time.
