My most ambitious sculpture yet: RW Conversation III now installed at the RoseWind Common House. The base and location are temporary, and not quite as stable as hoped. However it looks pretty decent, and I hope to complete a more secure permanent installation in this very spot soon, TBD. Altogether this is major achievement for this fat little old lady artist.
Still doing art, but mostly serious grunt work. Outdoor sculpture installation takes some effort: finding the right spot (which includes mock-up & visualization, communication, negotiation, preparation, and more :-), making or customizing an appropriate base, finalizing the method for attaching the sculpture to the base, etc.
Still to come actual transportation & installation!
Now in concrete. Wish it looked a bit less like an orange wedding cake … but still I made it, and I don’t hate it, so a victory of sorts!
A fun collaboration: I modified & mounted a cast face made by Pat Stromberg a few days ago, and it is on display in the RW Pettygrove Sculpture Park. The old apple tree now has a Dryad guardian.
Cement work can be slow going: creating forms or armature, then actual cement, then dry times, etc. The arch will be part of an installation with my small cast concrete Conversation figures. The large figure is intended for a large scale Conversation group, if the result is good enough and if I have the energy to make a full set!
