Reaching the Summit
Last week I returned to work on the tyvek installation, and managed to get through the last few inches to bring it to completion. As I reached the end I felt like putting on Eye of the Tiger and doing a few laps around the studio as I waved my hands triumphantly the air. Woo hoo!
It didn’t occur to me until I was almost at the end to count the number of circle designs that made up this piece. At that point it was thirty-three, and by the end it was thirty-eight. I went back and added two more to bring the number up to forty.
No wonder this piece made me so crazy. It’s a piece of work made up of forty individual designs, and each one was a whole lot of work. I’m glad I did this, and I am happy with the result, but I will never take this approach to something on this scale again.
This piece will be part of an upcoming exhibit in September at Circle Craft Gallery, titled Hammer, Cut, Stitch, Repeat.
