88/365 – Miniature Planet
Just like yesterday I was taking one set of photographs and happened on another. I liked my other ones, but was thinking my 365 needed a macro and abstract shot since it had been a while. I plan on re-shooting the other idea at some point, once I get some more materials.
As for this shot, does any one have any guesses as to what it is?
26/365 – Abstract
Today was another long day for me. And it involved saying goodbye to a friend that I have been great friends with since freshman year of college, which is never an easy thing.
But, despite the busy day, I managed to sneak in a shot. Any guesses as to what it is? Perhaps if there is interest and someone gets it right they will win a print of mine?
One last thing (it is late, and I am tired, so I ramble). I entered a contest and could REALLY use your votes. All it takes is a click, you can vote once a day, and they make it so incredibly easy for you to share. So please, vote and pass it on to everyone you know!
Sculpture: The Jumper
In my studio this summer we poured a 200 pound block of plaster and then gradually chiseled away at it to carve something showing motion. I chose to do a long jumper for my piece since I was a long jumper in high school and absolutely loved it.
This project was an insane amount of work. Despite being done for a full day, my hand is still extremely sore, swollen, and I am unable to bend or straighten it all the way. I was so frustrated while working on this piece, I almost wanted to just quit. I even had an arm break off while working (which I am actually very happy that it did). However, despite how much I hated it while working, t was by far the best critique (at least most positive) I have ever had, and I think it may be my favorite piece that I have ever made (other than photographs).
