|"Transformation" completed 6-3-11|
Another bright spot these past couple of days was the completion of "Transformation." Because this piece is so textured, I was at a loss at how to seal it (since it will not b3e under glass). I settled on my go to sealer, Dorlands Wax. Worked like a charm. I was able to finish and seal by Thursday of last week. The wax cured for 24 hours and then I buffed the finish. Voila, I was ready to let her go on Friday. I wanted the recipient, Mrs. Hirsch, to open it while I was standing there. Tears welled up in my eyes when I saw the joy this piece brought to her. She was almost speechless but not quite. The hugs and the smiles spoke a thousand words. I think I will offer prints of this one if ever I get time to get my ETSY shop up and running once again.
Swan Lake is this Weekend. The Black Swan photo below is by Mr. Dan Swinson and is of one of our beautiful dancers. If you live in my area and want something completely cultural to do this weekend, head on over to the Opera House. This is a fantastic ballet and danced so beautifully by The Judith Svalander Dance Theater. Both my Colin and Claire have big parts :) I am a proud Mom for sure. My studio time will be non existent until after Swan Lake.
