Our featured artist is metal sculptor, Susan Westley Seeger, a long-time gallery favorite. This one-woman show will highlight Susan’s innate talent through her free-standing as well as wall sculptures. Susan will symbolically represent all the artists we are so grateful to for their support and fine work throughout our 10 years.
I bolded that last bit. (Now my stupid computer won't type anything but italics.) Yesterday I realized I have 2 weeks exactly, from today to get everything finished and delivered. Two weeks to put out more than I possibly can (which always always happens because the more time I have the higher I raise the bar it seems), and make sure every single piece is imbued with some kind of special mojo--- is "fine."
As usual, things have been coming along, but going frustratingly slow. This piece, that looks simple (it can actually be really difficult to pull off this delicate "less is more" look), took an entire day. Actually, a whole day plus a few hours into the next day.
This is that veil piece I've been fiddling with for months now. I finally got so much paint on it it lost the woven look-- but I had to keep layering because the color was off and the rust wasn't coming through how I wanted it to. I wound-up etching little lines in it both directions with a Dremmel. This took days and killed my hands, but I like how it looks now. In another day or two I think I'll be satisfied and add...
I may start working some longer hours, but I'm not sure my hands can take it. also, all work and no play makes Sue... kind of a bitchy psycho actually. :)
Wish me luck everyone! I really feel a lot of pressure right now. What do you guys think about the driftwood piece? I know I didn't show you the whole thing, but I mean the concept of it, from how I described it? Should I be worried?
