You are probably saying to yourself—“I don’t recognize either of the two images above!” That’s because you have never seen them before.
Last week was the week of Thanksgiving, and I was busy doing Thanksgiving stuff. My wife Judy and I were scurrying about, meeting and greeting, shopping, talking to family, shopping, playing with grandchildren, shopping, and cooking meals.
Actually, Judy was doing all of that; I was running around trying to look busy, and checking out what I had done so far on the Owl Sculpture. That’s when I realized that while Judy was doing great getting ready for Thanksgiving, I was not doing so well getting the Owl Sculpture off the ground.
So anyway, I started all over again last weekend, and the images above are the results of where the sculpture is right now.
Instead of all the extra detail of putting in branches that contributed nothing, other than adding to the confusion of the overall piece, I now have the Owl sitting on a single tree trunk. I’m back into the original 24-inch height range that I originally had planned on, and the Owl’s feet are beginning to take on some shape.
I expect to continue to work on the tree trunk and feet for the next few days, so it will probably be next before I write again,
