This work was a result of revisiting a partially completed project begun in 2020. The result was partially fired body parts with a vague plan of painting and finding a way to put together at some future time. The future was COVID. After watching all the episodes of “The Repair Shop” on Netflix, I was inspired to put together and paint my character, “Shop master.”
