Whatever normal is ... spent most of yesterday at the West End Artists' Tour with Helmut and Ottilia ... and had fun. Came home with enough energy left over to take Kenya for a real walk and to make dinner ...
I bought another sculpture ... this one the polar opposite of "Grief". "Grief" is hard, grey and a realistic rendition of sorrow. "Alley Oop" is a soft felted sculture, brightly coloured, and on springs which almost allow him to leap with joy. He has a smile that inspires me to say, "Don't worry; be happy". Grief's strength derives from the body and its language. A great deal of the charm of Alley Oop is in the facial details. It is a sculpture by Edwina Sutherland.
I have placed this one on my desk in front of a wall dedicated to flights of the imagination ... paintings and prints that make me want to soar ... to let my imagination fly free.
Happy September, Everyone!
