There's Gnome Place Like Home!

The blank gnome for the Holden Arboretum's Gnome and Garden Arrived today!

It was very difficult to get a photo of him without my little boy, he apparently took an instant liking to him....

I think the sentiment is mutual


He's here! My blank 5 foot gnome is literally in the house. Don't think I will get right to work on him. Unfortunately, he will sit in my living room until at least Monday. Before I can start working on him, I have a speech class, still need to hang my two 6 foot shelves in my studio and finish sorting and putting away the random supplies that litter my space. After I am done with that I can start drawing. I still need to buy the paints for him as well as the magicsculpt to add dimension. Really looking forward to this, I've been itching to create! I have realized I may need to adjust my initial design a bit due to his shape but I also think I can use it to my advantage if I play my cards right :o) I will definitely take photos along the way. I think he will be a show stopper when he's finished!

Wow. That is one huge elf. I'm glad you took the shots of your son next to it, it really puts in perspective just how big it is - and they're cute, too. :)

I'm a little jealous, I would like to have a 5 foot gnome in my house! I saw a photo on FB but had no idea how huge he is. Looks like a fun project:)
