Bursting With Pride!

This is a bit of a duplicate posting - the other being on my Ups About Downs Blog - but I am so proud of my daughter I am sure you will forgive me. These are pictures of her art work on display at Bells Piece in Farnham in their exhibition.

This is her clay sculpture of our dog, all her own work, no help at all. If you knew our daft saluki, you would know this is a very good likeness.

This is a silk painting which took her several weeks to complete - the colours are richer in real life.

Stacie finds fiddly work quite hard - difficulties with fine motor skills go with the territory when you have Down's Syndrome - so when I see these lovely pieces of work, I am so very proud of what she has managed to achieve.

Wow, tell Stacie I am extremely impressed. Love both! xo

Well done Stacie.

Shame about colours via the camera via the web. They don't always come out as bright as you hoped. These look fantastic anyway. x x x

Brilliant - she has really captured the character, especially in the clay figure, looks like she is a natural sculptor!

Lovely work Stacie.
I really like the leaves on the silk painting, but most especially I think that the ceramic dog is FANTASTIC!!!
You surely have inherited your Mum's artistic talents. Looking forward to seeing more of your creations.

Both projects are really great! Stacie did a wonderful job. She is very talented.
