The Texas Two Step: Avian Edition
March 1, 2020
Yesterday was the big day for assembling the finished sculpture for the first time. It's been a few
weeks since the last update, but that doesn't mean it hasn't been busy. All the detail work of final polishing
and applying sealing coatings has filled much of the intervening time - it just makes for less dramatic
visuals than some other elements of the process. Call it the Zen time of sculpturing.
The day did come when the signature went on, and then it was home stretch time.
Assembly happened in the afternoon. Paul came back to lend a hand, and Wayne arrived with Big Blue. Elizabeth from
next door brought her son Orion to watch. He loves when the big boy toys show up. My wife Clay came out to take pictures.
And of course Tita had to check out what was going on in her studio.
Assembly went very smoothly. Below are a few images from the process.
It was such a nice day today I brought out the studio plants for some vitamin D and watering.
It made for a nice staging with instant landscaping. Little breeze today of course, but when
the opportunity arises I'll get a movie up. We'll enjoy it as is for a week and then start the packing
up process for the big trip to Texas.
It's going to be great to see this sculpture in its intended setting where it will be
silhouetted against blue sky. My bare pecan tree makes for a less than optimal
backdrop. Till next time.
And here's a little March 3d addendum
