The Joy of Later Life - Part of the Army of Joys Collection
16cm x 7cm x 14cm
Calamity Louise was a Texan Longhorn enjoying her advanced years. She loved her family, adored her offspring, but was enjoying the freedom from the responsibility of raising them. Now she was just looking for companionship and adventure, and was open to it all, but with the confidence to say no if it wasn’t right.
Calamity Louise is a discarded toy cow embellished with decoupage, paint, gold-leaf, mixed media and found objects. She has a glass heart on her back, Indian textiles, and painted hooves.
All my pieces are individual and one-off - as I only work with recycled and reclaimed objects I never know what I am going to find. If you are looking for something particular, please ask - and I'll start looking!
