i finally got a chance to shoot some quick shots of the conjoined twins sculpture i have been working on.
yes, it is finally finished... well, almost. it still needs a stand, but i will get around to that later this week. i have about 6 more wall hangings in progress that i want to attend to first.
in the meantime, here's the first look at ocula and orala:
again, i am swinging to and fro in the confidence arena with this one. i like it. i don't like it. i see things i could have done differently. i wish i was better. faster. surer.
but, all in good time, mah dear lady.
honestly, it turned out almost exactly as i pictured it. but, how i picture things has become a bone of contention with me. i question whether or not i am an artist because of how i approach working... i know. that's weird. i'm weird. my mind is weird. i will explain that to you later. i haven't had enough coffee this morning to be that philosophical...
all in all, i guess i shouldn't be too heard on myself...i made a decision to learn a new craft and i am following through on that decision. it's going to be a long road. hopefully a fulfilling one. i am definitely enjoying the journey although my hands are really dry from all the clay.
today i am going to just take a step back from what i have been doing. just let things marinate if you will.
i will leave you with one of my favorite quotes regarding creativity and imagination:
so you see, imagination needs moodling - long, inefficient happy idling, dawdling, and puttering...
