This week's Studio Friday theme is Comfort. And I'm also cheating and using the same photos for my "Corners of My Home" submission (one day late) since it's in a corner!
This is a corner in my studio that holds a mannequin figure I made my husband for his birthday a few years ago. As you can see, there is an arched inset that holds a raven. The arched shape itself is a very comfortable shape for me- I find it enclosing and protective and safe. There're also two printer's blocks- "J" and "C"- our initials. Around the arch, it says, "He always calms her rising emotions". This is where the real "comfort" comes in. This statement is very true of us. I tend to be a worrier and easily distressed. Jason is my rock- he calms me down and gives me more confidence to be able to do the things I'm scared to do. He's a great comfort to me.
At one time, the mannequin had copper wings and a finial on the top, but those broke off during our recent move, and I haven't reattached them yet- but I may wait, because she wouldn't fit in this little corner if she had all her extremities reattached, and I kind of like having her there!
