Getting a Head

I enjoy collecting artworks by other artists, and had wanted to buy one of the lovely styrofoam heads created for Chesterfield Arts' Art Feast table decorations. After being unable to go, I was dismayed that Mary Beth Shaw's had all been snatched up (they were too fun). I am very excited to have picked up a head by Jennifer Klemp instead (I hadn't seen hers before). I especially like the creepiness factor of it, with the heart so perfectly rendered.

Oh you're too sweet. Jennifer's were amazing - she is soooo talented! Actually all of them were wonderful. It was a very fun project and I am hoping we do my head art soon. I can visualize many different manifestations for this type of art - from self exploration to fun character play.

They were awfully fun. I really like the one I got. Jennifer Klemp did an amazing job on them - the level of detail is incredible. Your "Bird Brain" was great - it made me smile. M. J. Goerke had some cool ones as well. And there were a bunch by artists I am less familiar with that were superb. I wish I could've seen all of the heads in person.
