If I actually have any followers left I'm moving my sculpture over to a new blog that has the name and blog code the same. http://www.maryellennewtonsculpture.blogspot.com I'm keeping this blog but may just post randomly. See you on the new blog....

I turn 53 this month on the 29th. I keep telling myself year after year that I want to be a sculptor. I want to get better. I just want to sculpt. Then never do it. For one reason or another I just don't get into my own home studio or even go into Lillstreet for a second day. I do nothing. I just let myself down as there is no one alive currently to tell me a can't sculpt or work. So why don't I do the work? So after thinking about this since January 1st I've come to the conclusion I'm standing in my own way. I'm sabotaging myself. I'm the reason why no sculpture gets done. So in order to actually become a sculptor, get better, and see if its really for me I'm challenging my self. Until my 54th birthday I'll make one piece of sculpture a week. It will improve my skills and get me in the habit of using my time wisely instead of blowing off. I'm afraid of this challenge as I fear I'll just let myself down yet again but I'm going to do it. Look forward to seeing a post a week with my progress.

On a personnel note we've adopted a homeless cat named Winston. He's around ten and came from an alley in Chicago. He was dirty and starving and a big mess. After a bath he looks brighter but is having trouble eating as his teeth are bad and he has an upper respiratory infection. He is really a sad lump of fur and bones. Whenever anyone walks in Winn purrs like a motor boat an loves attention. As soon as he's feeling better he'll get his teeth cleaned and then we'll begin introducing him to the rest of the cats and Pup our lab.

Will I continue seems to be the question I keep asking myself over and over. I can't seem to get myself to the studio. In class I haven't produced much worth looking at let alone photographing. Is this the end of sculpture. I'm still not making work that inspires me and lately it all seems blah. Not to mention I've dropped a few pieces and that was the end for them. I'm bored really and uninspired and really blah. Perhaps its just the end of winter but the weather never seemed to bother me before. Is this just a lull before something exciting happens and I'm back to working full out with excitement and enthusiasm? I guess I'll never know for sure. I'll just wait and see.
