Unfinished Art

One of the casualties of my knee lessons was my art class. Metal working and crutches don’t really work. I will heal and be ok as long as I take it easy. Standing and using sawzall’s don’t qualify as easy. So yesterday Bob went with me to palomar to pick up the unfinished art. The bronze box needs sanding, polishing, and a metal bird attached on the box. There are lots of other unfinished pieces — the snake cup, the gecko bell, the spider bell, the wolf, and bird on branch. My borg houses never got beyond the conception stage. I’ll have to finish them up next semester. But the teacher promises I can be on the metal pouring crew–that will be fun.

So last night I was sitting at the kitchen table, looking at all this unfinished work; feeling a bit melancholy. But part of good art is angst. Started playing with the camera and actually got some fun pictures. Thus I can present “Art Unfinished”




Author: Heres to ART not Cockroaches

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.
