Welcome to my weekly update on my studio classes at school. I'm a bit tired so I'm going to make this brief.
Our first sculpture was due for critique. Last week I shared my ant's body. Well I finished the rest of it in class on Monday. My concept behind this sculpture is how mankind functions like a community of ants. I used the toy cars and images of houses to represent the human community. I like it better without all of that but just the ant didn't express my idea too well.
I missed a day of painting this week because of being so tired. My eyes wouldn't open more than halfway and I was basically a zombie. Not a good thing at all, though it's not that good that I missed another day of class. The one day I did attend (we only have class twice a week) we made supports for canvas and had a demo in the wood shop. I've already been through it but it as required to attend anyway. No photos of that because I'm sure you know what a stretched canvas on wood looks like.
I played around more with cyanotypes for photography. For these I didn't yet have my contact frame so they aren't as clear as they will be with that tool.
I took some photos yesterday and today of the one thing I love about winter: hoarfrost. Yes, the fog is essential for this, so it's not all bad. I do like it more when it's early in the morning and the sun is rising, the sky is a beautiful ice blue and everything is quiet. Because of the overcast sky, the hoarfrost has stayed all day long instead of disappearing by afternoon.
