and my point is.........

Someone once asked me what I would want written on my gravestone that would sum up who I was. I decided that; "Here lies Coralie, she was a great character!" would be nice. I'd like to think that it's true, but I'm not sure. I think maybe that's something that other people have to decide. But it would be nice. I'm definitely going to work on it. So that leads me to my next point - I think I know the direction this blog will take. I spend a good deal of my time observing the human race - most especially its idiosyncrasies. These observations manifest themselves in my artform; I create characters. Well, that's what I call them. Some people call them "dolls" or "artdolls". I've always been fascinated with great characters or anybody who's just a little "off the norm". My observations are the seeds from which my characters grow. More often than not, I've watched someone intently, only to come to the conclusion that if I recreated that individual as a sculpted character, people would be convinced that I had conjured it up from the warped recesses of my imagination. So I've decided that my blog will be about great characters I have met (or simply observed) and characters I have made (and maybe it will be hard to tell the difference at times). Okay - enough said for now. I have to decide who my first character will be.....

Hey Coralie...

Interesting... it gets posted at YOUR time, even though I'm writing it on MY time. It's 12:13 am here. This is a good way to turn the clock back!
