A Christmas Tree, a Dragon and a Hippopotamus
Now all we have to do is wait for Santa to come down the chimney... Or in our case through the front door or an open window...
He doesn't have any arms or wings or even ears yet... Oh and no tail!
At least that lets me sit in a comfortable position and sculpt.
Actually, he needs a lot of work all over. It will take some time. After sculpting is done, he will need painting. I am liking him so far.
I have been seeing the post office add on TV that is using my favorite Christmas song this year.
I looked it up on line and if you go to You Tube and put in "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas." you can hear and see it. It first came out in 1953 and I guess it was quite a hit that year. The girl that sang it made it to the Ed Sullivan show.
I drove my parents mad with it when I was little.
Now I am driving Walter mad with it. I keep pushing the button on his tummy and singing along. Best ornament that I have had for Christmas in a long time!
Back to sculpting.
See you tomorrow.
