Today has been all about tiny parts, and fitting tiny parts together. File and saw fatigue have hit, so am taking a break from that. The next bit involves more pattern-making, hopefully the last of that for this piece. I’m super-itchy to do some more carving in wood or bone but am exercising restraint and finishing this first.
At the end of January I will begin two classes- an OCAC independent study in metals course on Saturday mornings and figure drawing at Hipbone Studio every Wednesday (except tech Wednesdays) from 1-4. This should satisfy the need for mentoring until March, when I’ll resume the search. This will be the first time I’ll be committing to these while in full show schedule swing, so we’ll see how that goes. I would like to add in a beginning Latin or Greek course, and I’m sure I’ll be able to find a suitable online course for that. No success in locating one that is workable yet, but I’m not too worried.
The above tells me that before mid-January, I need to:
1) Take my list of potential metals course projects/foci and elaborate on at least three of them so that when it’s time to plot my course with the instructor I have several options to talk about.
2) Finish what’s currently on the bench.
3) Do the budget for winter-spring.
4) Take the opportunity NOW to relax a little. Because once the courses start it’ll be a very busy three months.
