Was short of frogs so the amphibians are now in the studio, a variety of colors and sizes. a quick snap of Metal Mermaid Karen, me, in downtown Victoria a few weeks back, being a tourist. for a book I was working on. Plus one more mermaid shape for the studio walls. Metal quail packs, hooks, ornaments, small mermaids and clocks will be on the agenda for this next week. I still have most of my fingernails and currently am sporting no burns on my person.
