She didn't really 'comit' to the photo as much as I would have liked...
The finished Bear Rug:
So, this week I tried to think of ideas and consepts for the patterning on the rug.
I thought of maybe like a bones-muscles-fur layers type thing.
And a holes-in-animals-with-plants-growing-out type thing.... a motif in some other paintings in my senior project.
I'm going to make a bear rug of sorts out of taxidermy form(s), fabric/faux fur, and clay. It may have many heads, or legs, or be a strange shape or have odd patterns or something to tie it in with my senior show... I haven't decided the specifics yet. If I have time, it would also be fun to do something with one of the full-body taxidermy forms.
