Got this one wrapped up a couple nights ago. Hopefully I'll get final photos this weekend. I'm really happy with where this piece is taking things. The combination of ash, wax, & plaster has a LOT of potential.
Yeah. I'm diggin it.
Good news today = much business heading into the fall. I know it's still July, but here's all the positive stuff coming.
First of all, I was just asked to show my work for our August Art Walk AND our September Art Walk! Really cool news. This gives me time to develop more pieces, possibly some smaller sculptural ones. We'll see where it ends up, but I'm excited.
Second, I was asked to teach a first year design studio at the Montana State University School of Architecture. Feels like a cool honor. So I will cut back some hours at work and add plenty more for teaching. I'm looking forward to working on communicating ideas about good design to new students. It will be challenging but will help me work on communicating good design to my clients as well, so it's a win-win.
Third, we are progressing with building Memories to Masterpiece. My goal is to get some work shops set up with some local retirement communities to show our product. Hope to do that in August... maybe.
So dang busy, but good busy. Let's see what comes of it, shall we!
I finished this one a couple weeks ago, but just got the final photo online. This is a sample piece for Memories To Masterpiece. Not sure if I'll put it in my first show August 8th. Thoughts, comments?
