The Quail March On

Hi Folks,

When we last talked, I was optimistic about finishing up the sculpture in October. This is where I was at that point.

However, this is when I decided to modify the piece a bit. So I began to make some minor changes. I didn’t think that the log did anything to tell the story, and in fact cluttered things up, so I whacked it!

This left me with a dead bird.

It also created a weakening of the overall structure, so the solution was to make things worse. I removed another bird with the intent of switching places with the dead bird.

There’s a leg inside the McDonalds cup, but the cup makes a great support for the bird while I am modifying it.

So as I end this “Post”, here is where the sculpture is today. The brush and scrap of former log are holding the birds in place while I rebuild the internal support system, and I am less certain of completing this sculpture by the end of October.

Someone once said, “You can’t make an omelet without breaking the eggs, but you can sure make a mess”,

Although I have been pursuing my art in one form or another all of my life, it is still an adventure, and one that I have never tired of.
