Hey people. Whoa. One week until I deliver everything for the show. I have a sinking feeling for all my working, I'll get there to drop everything off, and weirdly have about the same amount I had last time, even though I've been working towards having at least double. I'm trying to refrain from going around and counting because I have as much time as I have and can only work as fast as I can. So I just keep my head down and plow forward.
Here's something I worked on today. It goes with my #46 piece which I decided to just go ahead and make about me, where I feel like I am right now in my life.
I always feel like sort of an impostor talking about stuff like this, because I know most of you are thinking, "Wow!!! That Sue is so nuts!" But really, to the crew of rider/racers I edge around, (trying to fit in while hero-worshiping them a bit), this is very normal behavior. I'm sort of this daring big chicken I guess. I like to get thrills and try out new adventures, but it takes all my courage. Anyway. Bla bla bla.
Here's how the little horse came out. My previous horses have been kind of naughty, or else really passive, unaware even. This one I wanted to be different.
I have a ton of pieces partially finished right now, while i wait for welds to rust etc, so the next few are just snippets. The nest is going in a big wall piece. Still deciding if any of the keys will be part of it.
This is a background for some trees, but I really like how the paint came out.
Today I decided after my last show's wardrobe choice that left me feeling uncomfortable and costumed as a grown-up lady, I will stick to my guns and wear jeans this time. I'll fancy them up with a cool sequined t-shirt, and some kind of cool scarf or jacket, and some boots (comfortable ones), but think I'll definitely be dressed more as *me* this time. Score one more for learning a few things in your forties. ;)
