August Update

Hi out there in blog land.  I know it has been a bit since I last posted.  Please know I am not ignoring you all out there.  But, as I may have hinted at in earlier posts.  My work is undergoing a big change in direction right now.  I am still sculpting, but I am venturing into a different mode of presenting my creations.  I will give you a hint.  What do sculpted characters, lights, settings, backdrops and special effects have in common?  Yes, I am trying something totally different for me.  It is time that I merged a number of creative interests to present my story.  Last winter I taught an online class called Artspell, The Alchemy of M.E.  The ME stood for my experience.  It was a class meant to teach us how to discover our own mythic journey.  How can we tell the story of who we are to the world.  Little did I know this would open a rather big door.  So, my friends I have decided to step through this door of uncertainty.  I must admit that I have a great deal of fear in that I am not sure how this will all turn out in the end or if anyone will even be interested.  But, I know I must follow my heart.  My hope dear friends and creative peeps is that you will have the patience to follow along with me. I intend to post updates to my progress.  The above picture is some of the heads I have been working on as I have painted them and they are awaiting some finishing touches before they are given bodies.  They will all be characters in my mythic journey with more to come.  Many more as this is going to be a big project.  Most of what I have now are notes and little sketches of settings and lighting notes.  So nothing concrete to share yet.  But, soon so hopefully you will stay tuned.  My goal is to have the first scene done by this October.

Thanks again for visiting me and supporting my artistic adventure.  It has only begun, in earnest.
