The days are winding down as I get ready to bring my sculpture over to the Blaze to get it set up. I am both nervous and excited, apprehensive but ready. Like a wild scientist I’ve been in my lab for the past three months cooking away with leaves and wood, glue and glitter, paint and pliers. In creating this sculpture I’ve run the gamut of emotions from fully confident to completely unsure of the work…but alas the finished product has brought me a sense of calming peace.
I think much of this peace has also come from my father who has played an integral role in building the structure of the work – both his woodwork and artistic talent have been a major blessing! I am endlessly grateful for his help along this journey.
I’m so happy that the sculpture is complete right around the time of the full moon – it just feels right. There is a sense of accomplishment but also of new beginnings, letting go, graceful acceptance. I hope this full moon finds you planting your own seeds of gratitude and focusing on the things you’d like to give more love and attention to! I hope you’re enjoying the beginning of Autumn…and finding quiet peace along your path…
Blessings, xoxoxo, Erica
