1. Every year they killed the last of the dragons and every year the ocean birthed new ones.

2. She feels like she’s always packing up her life to move somewhere. An endless cycle of purging-packing-nesting that makes the concept of home seem distant and dreamlike.

3. The long distance ships are massive things, cobwebbed with transport systems. It would take days to walk from the bow to the stern, so even the failover systems have backups.

4. “Have you heard about the fire?”

5. The first day of summer vacation is always overwhelming– There’s no school to eat up his days and he can do anything. So much to do! So much to accomplish! …So he goes back to bed instead.

1. When I was younger climbing trees ended in bruises instead of broken bones.

2. For centuries the aliens don’t notice us and we don’t notice them– we’re just too different, too alien to recognize each other.

3. “I explained the rules,” the genie said with a resigned frustration. “Multiple times. Wishes that violate the rules won’t work, no matter how convoluted your reasoning gets. This isn’t logic, this is magic.”

“You just say that because I haven’t figured it out yet.”

4. Volumes have been written on the art of war… we will be the first to author the books on peace.

5. Magic is trapped in the cracks of the stones, yellow-blue flashes of light that snap and pop are never quite green.

1. “This is the last thing I wanted– to win by without any shred of honor left? But the phrophecy can’t go unfufilled.”

2. Cold winds creep sluggishly along the valley floor, the merest whisper of frost that hints at the storm to come.

3. Dogs sprawl about the campsite, exhausted but alert for the slightest sounds of food.

4. The light of the dying star dims as they fly closer, peeling off the centuries in a fast-forward dash to the present.

5. Songs are meant to be sung at certain times of day and punishment for singing out of step is swift and vicious.

Live From the Workbench 08-28-2017

Here we go again…

It’s been a whirlwind of a week on the art desk and I’ve got a whole passel of updates to update about! 🙂

The first –and most obvious if you follow me on Facebook– is the resculpted G4 Stock Horse. I finished the sculpting (and lots and lots of prepping) and moved onto the painting… which is almost done. I’ve got a few tweaks to make to her tonight and then she should be headed off for a trip soon after.

I also made a secret project to ride along in the box with the portrait horse… I’ll post it here after it’s arrived. (Mwahaha!)

1. Radiation batters the sensors in a rush of static, but echoing through the noise is the heartbeat ping of the beacon.

2. “Everything ends.” He tossed the last shovel of dirt onto the gravemound and paused to wipe his brow. “Good things, bad things, it doesn’t matter. Take nothing for granted.”

3. The oldest races are the largest, evolved in a more forgiving world they have been slow to adapt to the new reality.

4. Someone calling during dinner was one of my grandmother’s gravest sins and I watched her outlast telemarketer after telemarketer in stoic silence.

5. Fine gray moss grows in the crevices, scattered like ashes across the collapsed brickwork.

Simple Horse Head Sculpture [Gallery]

By | August 25, 2017
Simple Horse Heads

Rainbows of Equine Abstraction!

Of all the plaster casting galleries, this one was the hardest to sort out. I didn’t keep the best records for these guys so the numbering is based on when they appeared in my phosts and is  approximate at best.

This was the very first ‘large’ horse head that I sculpted. I used it as a test in all of my molding and casting experiments. It was simple and stylized in order to make that casting as simple as possible and was made without using any references. It’s an unfiltered glimpse into what my brain thinks horses should look like! 😉
