a day in the life...with YOGI

I have to remind myself sometimes "Yogi is NOT your just hang out together a lot....".
Next door to Yogi's house is a small farmlet with chickens.  He is used to them and they are used to him.  As a matter of fact, Yogi's family tosses old veggies from their own garden into the chicken pen, so the chickens get REALLY excited to see him, thinking he might be bringing them an old summer squash.
My own beagle Penny has a totally friendly and winning personality, but she is not good in the studio.  She eats clay.  beagles eat everything.  Yogi naps and does nothing.  Guess who gets invited into my studio to work?

I sculpted a couple of wall pieces yesterday, Godzilla eating an airplane and Godzilla eating a car....

The wife came home early and found us hanging out and got the this point, Penny and Spike were sound asleep off camera and Yogi still following me around...have a great Friday yourself!

Good thing you use white clay, which doesn't show on Yogi...just think what red clay would do on that pretty white fur! Pink Pooch!

Love the chicken sculptures, and how fun is to have such an adorable dog to hang out with. Yogi is like having grandchildren... play with them all day and send them home and let the parents pay the bills!

The chickens inspired you. Yogi has such a cute, fluffy face.
