Here is a look at the final version of "Star Play". I decided to incorporate it into a sculpture rather than make a frame for it. This is my first attempt at using Blogger's image software--let me know if you can see them.
I'm adding this piece to my current body of work, which for the first time in my career is rather large (twelve pieces). Maybe it's the influence of sculptor John Kennedy, in whose studio I worked for seven years until his death a year ago. For some reason, he always worked in dozens and sixes.
Twelve seems right for me to open "SlaughterHouse" in the fall. This has been a very intense year and I can't believe that I'm this far along and at the same time am amazed at what it's taken to get this far. I'll be visiting Neil in mid-September and may offically open while I'm there. More on this later.
In the meantime, I have a wedding to do. Phillip and his fiance, Briget, have decided to get married before his pending deployment. They want to have the festivities here at our house, so needless to say we are like a hive of busy bees----the wedding is next Saturday, the 13th.
We are turning our backyard into a setting for a midnight-ish garden party. This is a good thing, as it's been awhile since we've done anything to maintain our reputation in the neighborhood as "The Adam's Family".
Aubrey will be photographing and videotaping.
TINY STORIES----We have extended the deadline to Oct 10th. If you haven't written and were thinking about it, you still have a chance.
We are very excited about this project, having received some excellent stories.
To RRNN: On voices, Hmmm. I'm thinking that possibly some women are reflective at toothbrushing as some men are at shaving. More open to hearing ourselves think??
Definitely not soccer scores...
later, with more pics
