"Nice work if you can get it. And you can get it if you try."
Because this sculpture is so tall, the best way to check on this sculpture is to lay down on the floor.
Why hasn't this idea occurred to me before?
It's very comfy down here.
Radically changing your position, changing your physical relationship to your art has BIG benefits.
Seeing your work in different positions allows new potentials and meanings to appear.
Looking at this model from the comfort of the cool floor reminds me of how children and people shorter than 6 feet tall will see this art. Laying here allows me to study what works and what needs to change.
My college sculpture professor once told me, "The better you get, the more time you spend looking at your work." Wise advise. I paint some, lay down and study the model, decide what needs to change, go change that. Come back lay down. LOOK. Repeat.
It's been a wonderful day.
