This evening I received a brief email stating that I was IT! I have been chosen to create public wall art for the city of Halsey!! No more being inside buildings, I’m moving out into the world of rain, wind, and sunshine. Plus it will be even more visible to the public! I really enjoyed working with the people of Halsey back in 2014. That was when I created a sculptural work inside the little building above. The new work will be mounted to the wall across the street, possibly the green building beyond? Or is it across the other street? Clarification will come in a few days, along with the full outline for project due dates and moolah. Are they putting all the eggs in one basket or spreading it out between multiple artists? I still don’t know yet.
At least I’ll be working with manageable sizes of light weight sign material (aluminum/plastic combo) and a scroll saw to prevent serious tendon/muscle damage to my hands. Hopefully the spine can get it’s act together and be happy sooner than later.
Just a tad happy and proud to have been chosen. Now the hard work will begin, but that’s ok. I love having serious challenges placed on my brain. It makes me feel more alive!
