My current piece from class.

For some reason this piece won't upload upright.  I can't figure out how to correct it so just turn you head sideways to view.  My new smart phone is making me feel less smart.  So anyway this is my latest piece.  I have to finish the eyes and hair and put texture on her shirt.  First I have to hollow it out.  Stand by for more updates.  Until next time....

Taylor's face.

I love this face.  It's from last year but I'm still enjoying it.  I want to hang it as well as others on the wall but I'm still waiting for my husband to figure out a way that won't rip all the dry wall.  Can't have huge holes in the wall.  I've decided to continue sculpting but I still feel so ambivalent about why I can't seem to work.  I just can't get up the inertia to get anything done.  I've felt that way for a few months.  I'm hoping posting again on this blog will get me up and moving.  I don't feel like a real artist yet again.  You'd think after being alive for 52 years I wouldn't care about titles of any kind but I still fall into traps such as who is a real artist and who isn't.  And so the day goes on.  Until next time....

Will I continue?

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.
