I finished up the remaining sculptures for the October show in Barrington; with little time to spare I'm told. All in all I have seven sculptures in this group show, I hope that will be enough, seeing as though I do not think I have any more lying around.

I made a small piece entitled "The Pearl of Her Sex"; it's interesting, small by my standards. I'm not really sure if my titles really mean anything, mostly because they are derived from the books I use in the pieces. Sometimes I try and relate the book to the sculpture, as I hope I did with "Pearl". I put a small mason jar on the bottom of the piece filled with black river rocks and a solitary white stone in the center. I think it works. I'll try and get a photo of it and have it up sometime soon.

That brings me to another point; I want to put up a section on this sight with some of my artistic endeavors, other than the cards. I do so much stuff that people never see, so I think it's time I put some up to get comments and such. I sort of miss the way I did things at the studio I used to have in Barrington, having people over to see work and get feedback. When I was at school I shared a studio with other students, so I would always get crits if I wanted them or not. I miss that.

So sooner or later I will have a section up with "art" and stuff. I hope people will enjoy looking at the stuff I make as much as i enjoy making it.
