Now that I've given up and will find some other way to blend blog and website, I'll backtrack and catch up a little.Here are the two other sculptures that should have been posted in February.
With the first piece of each of these now ready to show, it was time to move on. Two more clays were finished and went to the mold maker. Now(early April), the molds are almost finished and soon it will be wax time again. If they are to be ready for the 19th Annual Loveland Sculpture Invitational in early August, they'll have to go to the foundry in mid May. Wish me luck on that one! The gaps in the process were spent painting, with 6 smaller works, and one larger piece, just finished yesterday. I'll post them all in the next blog.
Amidst all this, my husband/sumi painter William Preston, had a very successful showing at the Santa Fe JIN's fourth Matsuri (Spring Festival) which I assisted,(and it was absolutely great fun), and I determined to expand this blog to include his doings (since they are part of my process as well). His new work is presented on his website, inkpainter.com and he has a wonderful new t-shirt, which we call the "Bee-T", or "Circle of Bees" available in S,M,L and XL.
I've created a Preston/Hornbuckle Fine Art Fan Page on FB , if you'd like to follow us. You can do that by finding our badge on the page, and clicking on the Become a Fan link at the bottom of it. I often post photos of newest work there before any where else. The image for the Fan Page Badge looks like this.
Somewhere in all this we signed up to show together at a local wine festival in June in Nambe (the next little community to the east). More information here ( go to Events)- it's a beautiful spot and should be gorgeous in mid-June! Enough for now!
