September 1, 2019! Yes, I've been able to hold to my restART date! This weekend I've fiddled around with a bit with a new idea and hope to have something ready to share by next Friday. My work space is more or less set up, but not really. That will take awhile...
In the meantime I want to share these wonderful figures. We recently explored the Ernest Thompson Seaton Archive at the Academy for the Love of Learning near Santa Fe. These two guys are displayed on the cabinet there without any information about the maker or origin. I got the idea that they were one of many things of this type that Seaton brought into his campfire talks of the 1930's or earlier. They are about 3 feet tall and carved from wood. It looks like the arms were made separately and then added. Weathering adds to their charm.
If I could make these...I would. Maybe they will inspire something.
