| Day Five |I had a sense of calm when I woke this morning to my alarm…it was a different feeling than the other mornings. I was much more at ease with where the day was headed knowing I just had to tidy up and paint. I actually slept until 7:00am and then joined Tom in the hot tub for about an hour or so relaxing our weary muscles. We had steak and eggs and got to work.
I went to the Bration site and started by touching up the primed
During lunch, I was able to catch up on some emails. I was in the student lounge and it seemed liked just last week I was in my own student lounge cramming for the test in my last class before the weekend. I had a similar feeling knowing I had a little more to finish before the dinner that night. I needed to get back to work.
I gathered leaves and sticks for center pieces for the reception Saturday. Liz had no budget for them and I offered to help out. When I finished spray painting them, I went back to Bration for pictures and then off to Cutoff to paint it. After I finished painting Cutoff, I stood back to take in the color. It is purple. I have never made a purple sculpture. I left the edges raw to rust. That bright and fresh orange that will happen after a good rain with provide a really nice outline to the purple form. The color works well with the piece's surroundings. I have learned a lesson in working with color and placement of work. I am lucky these pieces are in such a well maintained campus with beautiful landscaping. I can't wait to see it in the spring!
After letting the marketing office know I was finished so they could photograph the piece for the slide show, I was FINISHED! I cleaned up went back to chez Tom and cleaned myself up for dinner out, relieved and thankful for a week that will always be cherished in my memory on my path as a sculptor.
