I made this from steel wire I got from the dollar store and a pair of rusty pliers. I ran out of money for now to buy any new canvases. I thought I would try my hand at wire sculpture. This is a baby looking down at his feet. I would really appreciate your thoughts on this. My son likes it, but he is nine and I was hoping for a more adult perspective. I find it really hard using new materials and I am feeling a little insecure. Thanks for your help!~†

Hi my friend shannonjyl, how are you my dear? I love this work. You are an artist and creative person so you don't need to be afraid with new materials because you can try anything and it will become a good work. It is a look simple but complicate lines work. Very difficult to get but you did it! Have a nice day my dear.

Thank you my friend teka44. I really do appreciate the supportive words. You are a good friend. I will try to find more interesting materials to work with. What about combining canvas with the wire! That would be an interesting adventure! Thanks for being my friend teka.

sconibear, I thank you so much for your kind words. I do kind of have this love hate relationship with my camera. I want it to do so much more than its price tag will allow. Maybe next year I will have to sleep with santa! Your time and your response means a great deal to me. †

I think it is really good. I would like to have it on my mantle. Are you selling it? Don't be afraid of new materials. That's how we grow as artists. Put your' insecurities aside. The piece is really good.

HI rebeccalynn, when I open my computer this morning and saw all the responses I have received I almost cried. It has been a loney time for me and It made me feel a little more connected to this universe and human. Thank you for your kind comments. I put it on my own mantle as a reminder to try new things and always grow. do you know of any good sites for artist that can sell their stuff without paying the vender? I really do appreciate your comments. I hope you have a good day †

i think it is cool..it looks like one of those 3D computer models of a human figure. i like ur paintings too. u should show it at some art gallery or at least create ur own art gallery and invite others to check it out.

hi! Thank you for the kind comments. I think it is time I devoted some time and effort to promote myself as an artist and not just a mother. It is scary taking that leap!
