Here are the sculptures I created for Sept 2018 First Friday including a large wall sculpture of sailboats emerging from a storm and into the clear, a group of sailboats just having fun, a coffee table with beautiful sea glass, a peaceful zen beach, and a relaxed new horse. As usual, my pieces are intended to inspire resilience. I am happy to report all five prior sailboats sculptures have gone to happy owners for some favorable winds armchair sailing !!
For those of you who have been around horses you know they really don't relax that much. As a prey animal, it just doesn't pay to let your guard down. But even horses need to restore their energy by relaxing. I hope this horse brings you calm, soothing and relaxed energy.
Here is a closer look at "Into the Clear", a piece I created for the Sept 2018 First Friday. I intended to create the feeling of relief when moving away from a storm and into the clear blue. On a deeper level, I intended to demonstrate it is about learning how to dance in the rain rather than get thru the storm.
