Working on a lounging roo that will be cast in glass for a Mother’s Day gift. And also brought the rhino home so I could cut as much of the sprues off as possible and do some finishing work on his feet and back. Even though he’s hollow he weighs 9 pounds so carrying him 10 mins to the parking lot he starts feelin real heavy. He will get his front foot welded up and his butt welded on next week, so I need to get him ready. Oh and the rhino still has the vents from casting on his face in an attempt to protect his ears and nose while being worked on, if he gets banged on by accident he’s less likely to break or crack an ear right now.
Went for a walk on the beach by the light house. Found a lot of dead stuff, lots of various birds and fish and the spine of something roughly deer sized so I want to guess it’s probably from a deer.
Preview night was great. I got so many wonderful compliments and had some lovely conversations. There was just one person who, though they liked my deer a lot, were just really unsettling to talk with (I think they had been drinking) but other than that one person I met some wonderful people and even was left a business card from someone who works for two Milwaukee art museum collections. We will see what happens! Gallery night is going to be three times as crowded and I’m nervous and excited all the same. Good job everyone I’m so proud of my friends and my whole grade in general, we really rocked it!
