Since last July I've been working, incrementally, on a 3D art piece. The final bits are now coming together.
Last week in the studio I made rocks out of air-drying clay and then painted them.
Making the rocks was a very meditative process. In fact, all the parts of this project have been meditative, I suppose naturally so since there is a great deal of repetition in the individual parts.
The best thing has been how my brain has been going off in various directions as I create this 3D thing.

Below: a thing made with some of the leftover bits.
Looks kind of tribal, doesn't it? I don't know what it is, but I like how it moves in the breeze when the window is open.
Next month I'll be installing the finished work in the Western GM Gallery in Drumheller. I'm feeling excited and also a bit nervous, hoping the effect of the work will be interesting in the gallery space.
