Inspired, passion-driven and loving my NEW studio – can I just say that work has been simply JUICEY since beginning a NEW series of my own sculptural "Reliquaries." Before I put the final touches on the 1stsculpture in the new series (see posts below) I went shopping for NEW logs.
I really wanted the forest fire burned Doug Fir log in the photo above but it was too wide for the sawmill. Most of my wood is from forest fires. I use standing dead trees – for both moral and technical reasons.
Two beautiful trees were selected and plans to saw them made. Then I took Matt Ridgeway (the sawmill owner) out for a BIG margarita before skipping off to support other artists at the monthly Livingston Art Walk.
