New Work

This monument is in Mount Auburn Cemetery in Massachusetts. I was honored to become part of the family's' design process and making them happy was a bonus.

I've begun a new model which really friends can only be considered as a free write/ brainstorm... none the less... any one who does models will understand my sentiment!!

I have been absorbed with end of life care for my in-laws and have not been able to make art. I have no energy for friends or clay. I have been attending to real life breathing sculptures. Horseback riding and horse care has occupied my re-charge time. I am very comfortable with my horses and the non verbal communications are comforting to my soul.

New Post

As I build my next clay head I'm studying Philippe Farauts' video on "The Art of Sculpting" given to me through a friend. He is really fun and mesmerizing to watch as he builds and explains the modeling process.

I was looking through his web site and he has a page about forensic reconstruction; did you know there are two types of reconstruction, the anatomical method and the tissue depth method. This is used as one way to identify an unidentified

Anyhoo back to my study....

life happens while you wait might as well get going

So it has been a while and looking back I do apologize for writing like a 10 yr. old. I think it's becuz I can't type fast enough to keep up with my thoughts and my brain slowsss downnn

I have a part time a.m. job helping my community to feed people in need and early bird is the word. I've just acclimated to this altitude and my lungs are adjusting nicely. Art is in everything I do so my meals are colorful and symmetrical whenever possible and I try to maintain a good attitude throughout the process to feed the spirits as well as the tummy's.

This is creativity at another level and my guides have me learning much about determination and surrender which are sometimes opposing forces, not tooo bad though.
I'm excited for spring and basically excited. Sit-ups come in handy lately and dancing. Earning a living is tricky and sometimes evasive but drowning in abundance so worth the feelings to make it so.
I'm told my work is simple and evocative;

I'm working out my lesson plan

I've been working out my lesson plan for a course I'll be offering (so far through the Mont. Rec. Dept.) this Jan. If I don't get any takers I'll put it in the spring catalog. It's a way that I balance my life and merge my abilities and interests. I'm also looking for a job to pay for my dreams while they are young. It's all coming together nicely and my intentions are true. I have to get in flow and away we go. Meanwhile in the sculpture part of my brain is a steady input of ideas for the next work I'll undertake. This is sometimes a slow process especially if I have some pressing project ahead of it like I do now. Stay true my strength stay true.
