Are we there yet?

We've all been there, right? That piece you just can't leave alone. On the wall, off the wall, on the wall.... This is the most recent iteration of this bad boy. Who knows what it will turn into next. The worrisome part is there are two more of them in the queue waiting to be transformed. Once again. This is a mixed media piece (you probably figured that out already, right?). You name it, it's in here; plaster, wax, gold leaf, old map pieces, polymer clay, paper clay, cold tar... I started by sculpting the heart shape in modeling clay then made a latex mold so I could cast as many plaster versions as I wanted. It was going to be a serial imagery piece but so far they are all different. That is subject to change. The piece is roughly 8" square.
