Stay Tuned as we prepare our “ReConfigured” work for display at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport–March 30  thru September 30, 2013.

Figures for a Cacophony installationBecky & Jane in Jane's StudioHere are some photos from the week we spent in Phoenix at Jane's studio. We made a lot of progrss on the pieces that needed to be carved from styrofoam; the "cowgirl" and the "courtesan". Becky returned to Tacoma and set to work on the Conversation Boxes while waiting for a shipment of parts and pieces to arrive from Jane's studio. Everything arrived A-OK and Becky's studio is abuzzzz with fabrications--a true "cacophony" of elements. Then, a major snowstorm swooped into Tacoma and Becky has been unable to get out of her driveway to get to the studio. Which means two days, so far , of sketchbook "thinking" and painting in her head. Tomorrow may be a snowshoe day!The Beauty's Shoes in Place

marble or granite (?) lazy susan

I have two of these lazy susans that may be used to display some figures. They are quite nice looking. The picture at left shows one of Jane’s “Bathing Beauties” on on one for scale. At right is the Courtesan contemplating her fate while another “Beauty” considers her figure in the mirror….

I have placed the hulking “Courtesan” form onto a shiny, marble lazy susan and she seems to fit perfectly. The broken bits on her hemline could be underneath the edge of the lazy susan.
