One day you're up; next day you're down. When things get rough, sticking one's head "in the sand" by paying attention to one's work can help keep you from freezing to the proverbial flagpole.... and possibly keep you from freezing altogether.
Worked on the chandelier design after doing studio photography of a Lifetime Achievement Award sculpture to be sent off to its new home today. Always a bittersweet moment when one of our children leaves us for the outside world. Just like offspring of the human variety, sometimes we get to see them again but not often enough. We created them, poured ourselves into their being and then they're gone. Some go to the other side of the globe.
Received word today that one of our large art glass marbles had arrived safely in England and his new owner and fellow space artist, David A. Hardy, is very pleased. He sent a shot of it amongst his dinosaurs and awards atop the CD collection. We liked this one because he reminded us of Wall-E.
Another arrived in Pennsylvania at fellow artist Roy Scarfo's home and they sent a photograph of him resting atop a crystal candlestick on a table by the window. What a treat! They both look very happy. Maybe we'll get to visit one day.
I'll leave you with one final thought. Glass is made from sand, you know. So having our heads in it isn't all that odd.
