Not really a bad day, just a long one. I've made four new sculptures in the past few days and another series of nine head tiles. I was notified on Saturday that I will be the featured artist at a gallery in October. That is why I've been motivated to make new stuff. I will have plenty of new pieces by the time of the show. I never did get hold of the other gallery owner...oh well. In the next few days I'm going to talk to a coffee shop about displaying the tiles. It would be cool to get them up during the same time as the other show. Back to work .

Long day of work followed up by, well nothing so far. I tried to get hold of that gallery owner...no luck. I'll try again later. I've been in a bit of a rut lately. Haven't been able to get my ass in gear to make anything of substance or feeling. I stumble through the woods thinking about many ideas and themes but accomplish...nothing. I need a new muse an inspiration or even something to bring a smile to my face...blah, blah, blah...Time to quit whining and start working...later

It's sights like this that make me enjoy where I live. Yesterday there was a fire near us that was contained quickly, thank God. The rains came today, things cooled off nicely. Hopefully we won't have anymore fires.
I finished all the tile pieces and hung them to see how they looked together...I was pleased. Tomorrow I am talking with a gallery owner, we'll see what he thinks. I think I have enough for a show but more is always better. I made some more tiles to draw on and sketched some more sculpture ideas. I also need to get working on some illustrations for a friends book and a sketchbook for a gallery in Atlanta...

Evenings are cool and days are hot. The weather is starting to change. The mornings make me feel like fall will be here soon. I can't wait. When I get home for work it's still too hot to do much of anything. Tonight I'll walk along the trail and look for the moose and hopefully take a decent picture of them this time. This week I plan on making a few more tiles and starting on a couple more small sculptures. By the way does anyone see this, or am I wasting my time?

This is how I felt at work today. After a night of no sleep and pain radiating from my shoulders up the back of my neck into my head. I did manage to make a couple more wall hanging low relief sculptures. I also took a couple hour walk through the woods. The construction around here is trashing the forest and the trail. Normally I see deer and the occasional moose...not tonight. I only saw a few song birds and nothing else. Urban sprawl, is that what they call it?
