New Works . .

Today will see the final details in the completion of this grouping of new works . . . Just in time for the opening . . a day away.
Still deciding on their titles . . The "Stand Ins" are made from rescued doilies and lace that has been collected from a number of people and locations.

Still deciding if this piece with the tendrils will be an upright or floor piece . . depends on the space for the most part. Onward into the day . . Shelves to be built this day.

Work Work Work . . .

Deadlines are a wonderful thing . . it makes one set some demand . . . a sense of duty in their being along with that critic on the shoulder saying no sleep tonight . . you have much to do before this show opens . . so I'm in the craze of building forms again. . but would I have it any other way . . I don't think so . . seems to be just the way it is . .constantly setting goals and making new projects for the next round of expression . . This one piece should see completion by the end of the day . .

Mail From Carole . . Ken wrap

A red duct taped bundle arrived today . . . 3 boys for the wall (one sans feet) . . of Kens . . they really aren't all Ken . . but a close kin . . .so how many more before I have 999 Kens on the wall????
