A couple of things slowly taking shape and I'm not pushing too hard. Artworks are like children, you can give them directions but there's no guarantee they'll obey and even if they do, it will be their way. I like to listen to where a particular work wants to go and that requires a lot of sitting and staring and waiting.
box-things I make (recently named Pableaux) sometimes turn out as
instigations/inspirations for paintings and vice-versa. The latest one
is specifically a maquette, a 3-dimensional rough model for a painting.
The painting will take quite a while to do but here's the miniature
maquette for it, made of wood, cardboard, wire etc. The title is: The
Cosmic Sadness of a Teen Age Girl Crying in the Shower.
