The final day. Thank heavens. My hands are sore, my back is stiff and I’m ready to move on. But that said, it was worth every second. My husband often says that the biggest compliment I ever allow myself is “I’m not dissatisfied.” Today I told Ivan, our teacher (I took to calling him sensei by the end of the day) that I was more than happy. I never really expected to make anything that was more than just representative of a mermaid. Whoohoo. Here’s the final piece. Some of the concrete is still damp so things might sag a little over the next few days but you’ll get the idea.
It’s hard to see the rock she is sitting on because it is the same colour as the plastic from all the run off and my seashells are a little on the large side. She has no name as yet and her hands are empty. I was initially thinking bird food but then I worried that she might end up covered in pigeon poop. It remains a work in progress.
Here are the pieces of the other participants. The lady who made the garden feature also made a big smiling toad and four little garden stools like tree-stumps but she left with them in a hurry this morning when the heavy snow started.
I hope you enjoyed my little journey in the land of concrete creations. Now I wonder what I can get up to next.
