muse: a sweet little something meant to inspire the artist, the thinker....or the like.
i found her at a quilt fair almost five years ago....she asked me to take her home and i gladly accepted. she's crafted from heavy canvas, her arms are made from polymer clay, she has a painted body and her face is hand-stitched. a grapevine halo sits atop her soft and "free form" hair. she's stuffed with fiberfill and sports a fabulous rusty necklace with rusty dangly bells. and while this little art angel can be a little flighty at times, her kooky whimsical nature inspires me to have fun, to trust my instincts, and to follow my heart.
one thing that's always puzzled me, though, is the rusty wire hanger attached to her back....if i were to hang her on the wall, how could she possibly stretch those fabulous tea-stained gauze wings and fly?
