Well, I think it is done, done, done! My wire sculpture that is. It probably won't look done to you, but it is supposed to have certain qualities, which are: convex and concave, transparent, translucent, and opaque, inside and outside, negative and positive shapes. And then I suppose it would be nice if it was pleasant to look at, but I think I have failed in that area. Sigh! So let's see if this will upload. Yes! Can you believe I have spent the better part of three days on this? Wait four days! That's ridiculous of course, but so much of learning takes practice, and I need practice on this for sure. At least it looks like something. Most of the other students are doing some variation of a circle or a square or a squiggly line. They are smart!!:) The hardest part was sewing! I had to secure the material onto the wire and glue didn't work very well except for gluing cheesecloth. So most of this is hand stitched. I used a little tiny needle because I couldn't find anything else...until I was putting it all away just a bit ago. Then I found a brand new package of very thin, large eyed needles that would have been perfect, Sigh!
Right now there is a thunderstorm outside. It is getting dark, the wind has picked up and I can hear the rumbling sounds of thunder. Perhaps it will cool things down and water the lawn:)
So, now that I have my sculpture done I am going to start putting together my lesson for YW tomorrow. It is on forgiving yourself. I think that is a good topic, and also one I struggle with. Obviously or I wouldn't still feel bad about throwing spaghetti:) Or was it linguini:) I love that clip! I think the hard part of forgiving myself is that I am still not perfect. And that is OK. I am learning that slowly but surely. But I will keep at it.
Oooh! That was a loud boom! I guess I will sign off. I hope your day has been wonderful. Take care and remember.....:) So much to remember! HAVVVGW!!! Melody
