Massing complete

Finally finished massing it. Now the endless hours of welding and grinding begin. I'm very happy with it. There are subtle issues that I would change if I could, but at this stage it's just not worth un-doing things. The issues are so minor. Overall, I'm very happy. The proportion issues disolved when all the legs were in place.

She's got legs

Two legs on, two to go. Not completely happy with the proportion of the legs and their relationship to the top. I would basically have to start over on the legs if I changed anything. I'll keep going. Maybe it'll all come together at the end. Need more steel.

Back to work

I won't even discuss the fact that my last post was one year ago. Still working on a solution for that.
Anyway, moved the top part of the sculpture to the upper level of the barn. Put a hoist in and lifted away. I needed to step back and really look at this thing before continuing. I'm very happy with the shape and life it's taking on.
It'll be about 11' tall.
I need to start investigating a patina for it. It's steel and needs to be sealed. Maybe burning oil onto it.
