Kind Attention

Jane Davies has been very enthusiastic about my work with circles, and posted some examples on The Sketchbook Challenge. I meant to put up this link back in July, but it got away from me.

Space and Time in Disks

As I posted at the end of May, I cut up my large Circular Statements piece into four smaller pieces. And now I've decided that they will become four pieces related to space science topics.

I didn't post what the other half (the relatively intact half) looks like, so I've included a shot of it in my studio below. It's now 6' x 8'. Still substantial, but not impossible as it was before (at 8 x 12').

So what happened to the cut up bits?

Here are three of them in progress in the studio, waiting for Blackthorne Forge to make steel frames so that I can stretch the four pieces and finish the additions I envision.

The one on the right is about Dark Matter, and has extrusions of Dark Matter and overlying black disks.

This one is Wormholes, and other topics are Gas Clouds and perhaps Quantum Entanglement or Galaxies and Structures... I'm waiting until they're stretched out to make a commitment. The interesting thing that has developed is my use of beads and buttons. I never thought I'd get into stringing beads, but they seem to be the perfect thing for this project (combined with buttons, of course...).

$100 Art Sale at Local 64 in Montpelier

Come on over to the $100 Art Sale this Saturday at Local 64 in Montpelier! I'll be selling my Wine Foil prints and would love to see you there. Montpelier's "State Street Slam" is happening that day, as well as the farmers market, so it's a good day to head over to Montpelier.
