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!
Two days “off” from concrete & sculpture = Two days of printmaking. At the very last minute I decided to honor my commitment to produce a set of prints for the Corvidae 2016 Print Exchange. Only 13 prints required this year, 8″ x 10″ or smaller plates, using two passes / two processes (any processes but each artists should use the same two processes for all prints, but the prints need not be identical).
So the printing is done, the prints are almost dry, and now I need to sign, number, and select 13 from the edition of 15 to put in the Exchange.
I was wildly enamored of them at first, now I am at the fault finding stage, and find them sloppy, crude, and inadequate. I think I may like them again tomorrow!
And NOT in the Print Exchange:
Conversation I (Pettygrove Sculpture Garden), Eggzactly (my driveway) & Rock Column IV (or was this I?) SW corner my front yard.
