“Being a sculptor is not for sissies”

To quote my mentor, Fritz White, “Being a sculptor is not for sissies”.

It’s been a long time since I’ve struggled with a piece as much as I have with this one. I’ve built it up and torn it down at least six different times.

Yesterday, the words echoed through my mind “nobility of concept”. They were the words of an artist, Garland Weeks, who I took a workshop from 18 years ago. That one phrase assisted me to make a few adjustments for the better.

I’ve learned that a huge part of what I do is “listening to the whispers”.
