Jesus and Me
Often I turn 3-dimensional things into 2-dimensional things but this is the first time I've turned a 2-dimensional thing into a 3-dimensional thing. A good friend of mine commissioned this. It's a corn husk doll imitating folk artist Linda Anderson's painting of The Good Shepherd. I enjoyed making it and learned many things in the process.
I told my little sister that it is supposed to represent Jesus and one of us. So now she calls this sculpture "Jesus and Me."
