The gift that keeps on giving
I'm so pleased with this thing I made at Christmas. Not so much because it's a great piece of art. But because it's the first time I've successfully pulled of a replicated sculpture. I made a good mold of the original, and I've been making copies as the need arises. I must have made at least a dozen of them now. I've been giving them out to those who have captured my heart or imagination. My pastor, our church's Benevolence Ministry coordinator, my nanny's family, a teenager I've never met but know from an internet forum; who I wanted to encourage to follow her artistic and spiritual calling. It is so great to be able to do this. I think I'll make it a yearly tradition to make a small sculpture that I can reproduce and give out as God guides my heart. I can hopefully sell some as well. (I've already got two sales on this one.)
The one pictured is not my favorite paint job. Most of them I make either silver and red, or ivory and red.
I'm still working on the other part to this piece. It's a 3-foot tall cross with the words FIERCE LOVE emblazoned on it. The Lionheart will be the centerpiece to it. It has turned into quite a huge and elaborate project. (As they ALL do!) So I'm not sure when I'll get it done.
