A day on the Farm

Im still working on those Pics of the Fort Worth Omni artwork. Meanwhile I have had a great couple of days. I went up to north Georgia to have lunch with one of my star students and former state senator, Jane Hemmer. She has a beautiful 400 acre farm that defiantly brought back some childhood memories. I took several pictures and posted a couple on my site. Check a pic of one of her oreo cows below. Today I got to build and armature for a large sculpture designed my Marty. Im really starting to love armature building. It is such great exercise. You have to think through so many steps while mixing so many materials. This one involved fabricated welded steel supports with expanded metal build outs. Below is a pic of the finished armature with the small scale maquett. Also my mom came by the studio to visit for the day. awesome. So as you can see below, I put her to work. one more thing, check out the Cherrylion Studios blog now up and running at www.cherrylion.com

Hey, heard about you from Joe. Really amazing stuff on the CherryLion site. Next quarter I'll be doing some sculpture stuff, maybe you could give me some pointers when I post stuff? I'd gladly take any advice you have!
