A Star is Born

The project began sometime before September 7, the date on the photo at right – Now it is the end of October and there is a week left in art this quarter, and today – finally - “J's” soft sculpture is complete! 

“J” didn't work on it every day this quarter – sometimes the going was too frustrating and she would have to put it away for a while. 

Sometimes, the “new thing” in the studio was too compelling, and  the sewing project would be aside, for say, the potter’s wheel, or papermaking. But she would always return to it, day after day – putting it together and taking it apart; constructing and deconstructing. 

She made her way through the directions in a book that anyone would agree were not clear. Hers is definitely a story of the studio thinking habit “Engage & Persist,” if there ever was one. 
Welcome to the world little dude!
 And today, October 25th, The project is complete! What a triumph of will and skill! And what a delightful, whimsical payoff.
Congratulations “J” on a job well done! (I'm going to miss this little dude-with-no-name.)
