Mervin Moves Up
Well, Mervin of “Mervin the Mover” fame was so successful that he has decided to add another venture to his business empire. Plus, his slogan of “One Haul…That’s All” is taking its toll on his back. Time to move up, lean back and enjoy life.
So, I dug out the old clay figure that I had created for Mervin the Mover and with a bit of bending and breaking away the dry clay from the copper armature that I made, I’ve twisted him into a posture for window cleaning. Now, Mervin is vintage ’30s so don’t expect him to have the best safety harness as he’s cleaning downtown, high rise apartments….just a sling or rope that he’s leaning back against.
With a bit of clay added, you can see that he’s leaning back with his heels planted on the ledge of the high rise window. He’ll have a rag in his right hand as he wipes away a spot and his left hand will be holding a bucket of suds and a squeegee.
I’m thinking that this one’s going to be called “Missed A Spot.” And I’m pretty sure that it will somehow include a little dog.
