I didn't wake up early this morning because I totally forgot to actually turn my alarm on. I set it but now I know that if you don't turn the darn thing on it really just doesn't do you any good. So I missed my chance to go swimming today as there was a pool party scheduled for the afternoon with WAY to many kids. OY! But come Monday look out because I have my swim bag ready!
Had a pretty good day in the studio. The stone is progressing nicely. I did the first waxing to pull out the color and get some shine on the surface. It looked pretty good but now I can see where I want more detail and variation. Eventually it will be posted up so that it sits off the table surface on a sculpture base so that it can sit at an angle.
I had a little fun with all the tools on the table when photographing the stone. Can you see the broken hammer??
While waiting for the stone to dry before I could wax it I had myself a little dance party to some really nostalgic 80's music. If anyone had looked in the window at that point they probably would have thought I was having some sort of seizure or something but I don't care. I had a blast, got my heart rate up, got sweaty and felt like a kid again. I am definitely going to do THAT more often! Maybe I will get my students to join in!
Ended the studio time with some clean up which was mightily needed because something is starting to smell in the sink. Further investigation is required but not today.
So, I have to say that I like the image at the top there. I was interested in the light and how it pulled me down the hallway. I took a few photos but wasn't really getting what I wanted until I had the genius idea to us my dress form to give it a focal point. AH HA! Yes folks, I am bloody brilliant! At least once a day anyway...
We will have to wait until Tuesday to see what my digital photo professor thinks but until then I will bask in the slightly creepy glow of the light at the end of the hallway beckoning me to give my poor dress form a name. Any thoughts???
I watched an episode of Stargate SG1 while eating lunch today. Man I forgot how much I like that show. I was laughing so hard at one point that it was making it difficult to eat. Almost made me choke but it was worth it!
It's been raining all day which had made motivation hard to find but considering everything I have gotten done today I think I fought the battle and won... for the most part. Here's to hoping that tomorrow is even better:)
Have a great one my lovelies!
