I'm just completing two new pieces with entirely different themes. Up until now, with the exception of Picnic Pair, I have sculpted beautiful single figures. Jumping for Joy (below) is my first duet Swoopie. The piece speaks "reunion" and "completion" to me as two kindred spirits, two soul mates, are reunited as one.
The second piece is Hawk Ted. I recently lost my lifetime friend, Ted. I was working in the welding shop (Deborah calls it her garage) when, out of nowhere, a huge hawk flew in one open garage door and flew around me and left out the other door. Hawks just don't DO that! I'm sure it was a visit from Ted...ever present, ever vigilant, and always my friend.
