After an intensive weekend applying the last touches and the protective sealer on the figure, I put my sculpture into my car on Tuesday 19th May, and headed down to Muddiford, Broomhill Art Hotel.
What a warm welcome with tea and homemade brownies to die for.
Paul be blessed for his non-wavering efforts to dig out a hole for the installation of the figure, to cement in the structure, and make it all look like as if the Goddess had been “Wandering” the River Meadow since the beginning of time. Thank you.
Thanks also to Aniet and Rinus for the delicious evening meal and the inspiring and informative discussions we had with Margarita Trushina, one of the co-finalist sculptors, who has been installing her work the same day.
Aniet and Rinus, this is a wonderful opportunity you have created for emerging artists to develop and show they work and create possibilities of exchange and mutual spurring on. It would be just great to have a day where we Finalists could all meet! Think of it :)
