Motivation has been sliding out the door along with my energy levels. Yes, I get bored quickly when having to create multiples of anything and that’s probably why I attempt projects like this. It forces me to confront this problem head on. That’s probably why I never settle on just one art form to pursue. I’m always jumping between different ideas and media in order to keep my brain satisfied. Sometimes I wonder what would happen if I forced myself to work in only one area…. but I don’t think the outcome would be good.
I finally have part of sculpture #4 wired up but I’m still working on the individual flower parts. This particular camas was created from a dictionary. Our heat has been a tad high (95F or 35C) which certainly makes the sculpture parts dry quickly when placed outside. The clock is ticking and I’ll be lucky to plunk out another 4 camas plus backdrop before the installation date of September 1. Then there are a few weddings to attend and various other engagements. I think Halsey will have to be happy with 8 (or 7) completed stalks.
I’ll be borrowing a truck on Thursday to collect parts needed for the backdrop. Plus picking up a couple of kayaks. This part is a surprise for my husband who happens to be off in Texas with family right now. Oh, I so want to be out on the water right now!
