How long does it take to finish a sculpture

Sometimes art evolves quickly


“Escaping Thoughts” emerging from wet clay.

This piece was formed from a slab of clay in the studio in February 2016.

May 19, 2016  the piece is finished and ready to be entered for juried exhibition.

The process to complete this piece was much quicker than most of my sculptures. Frequently I incorporate found objects and other media to convey my intended message.  Assembling dissimilar parts takes more contemplation, planning, and sometimes actual blood, sweat and tears.

Is art less valuable if it comes easily?
