Two full months bookending this month. It certainly had something to do with the moon series that was released today.
More Than the Sum of Her Parts, 2020 (SOLD)
Air, 2020 (SOLD)
Fire, 2020 (SOLD)
Water, 2020 (SOLD)
Earth, 2020 (SOLD)
They all sold individually this afternoon, but here are the four elements together:
As usual, all colors are from rocks, stones, dirt and plants. A whole lot of homegrown indigo was used in this series, good thing I had a very large harvest again this summer.
On future work? Well, it has been an unusually cold fall. It even snowed today for a few hours! Not sure how much longer I will be able to be cut wood in my uninsulated, unheated, freezing cold garage. I'd really like to get one more series done before winter freeze takes over but the weather forecast is arguing with me about the feasibility of this. With delicate work like this, I can't work when my hands freeze. It's not enjoyable and also dangerous.
I didn't realize how easy I had it those years making wooden toys in Los Angeles, winter wasn't an issue! Here, where it regularly gets below zero, heated and insulated studios are a must. Except, nope, I don't have one of those. Yet. (See what I did there? Putting that "yet" on the end keeps the possibility open.)
