Lesson 6 sculpture class

Its been a long long week — too much overtime at my day job and lots going on with CSA. In addition, Liz came home to visit. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see much of her; but I did get paid some overtime. So I guess overall things are well although the time with Liz and all my family is precious and not replaceable. Will catch up on news some night when I’m not a tired wretch.

On Friday, went to class number six. Since Bob was home loopy from drugs after surgery; I only stayed a little more than one hour at class. Came home early so Liz and Kate could go to the movies. However, in that hour; I was able to make good progress on the sculpture. Started working on the neck. Learned by hard experience that the head does stick out a lot in the front of the body. That meant the whole base had to be redone. I’ve not had a chance to check measurements; so the neck is not yet correct. But it does help put the sculpture in context. Below are the photos.



This last photo is special. You can see the model and my sculpture. It looks like her; but not yet perfect. Have another 4 weeks to get it finished correctly.

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.

  1. Your sculpture is amazing. The ears look great and, of course, I love the mouth. Sorry to hear that Bob had to have surgery. Hope it’s nothing serious and that he’s doing better. You’re in my thoughts.
