Midlife Series: PRIDE
Thank you very much for your feedback. Two artist friends suggested I remove the crown's frame, as it is flared out too much and distracts the attention away from the face. Their advice made sense, but alas, the frame was epoxy-glued to the sculpture firmly. Cutting into the glue was impossible. A lesson I learned from this experience was: Never permanently adhere anything until absolutely sure. As I am often indecisive, I may never be "absolutely sure," though…. The finished crown is my compromise.
Reflecting your feedback on the sculpture's title, I've decided to call her PRIDE. “Don’t mess with me. I am who I am.” She is the carriage of inner strength.
Together with the above image, I just submitted an application to an American Craft Council show. I feel relieved tremendously.
