What A Difference Three Weeks Makes!

I don't mind admitting that I post these pictures in an effort to cheer myself on. The middle knuckle on my left pinky finger is getting a little swollen. And I have a muthah of a welding burn on my right calf.

It's over seven feet tall now at its highest point. Total length is about 23 feet.

There are only two real goals left. It needs to grow toward the wall (that large structure covered by the tarp), oh, between 6 and 30 inches, depending on where you look.

And it has to get a solid connection to the ground. Right now it's on dollies, which are basically the same as the steel footings it will be welded to. And it's developed a little bit of a wobble because of the distance between most of the rubber and the concrete below. This will probably get solved when the real foundation gets covered with topsoil and grass. But why chance it? The rubber should drape over the footings and act as a big stabilizing skirt.

Oh, and finishing. So three goals.

Been following your sculpture process with interest for some time, thought you'd enjoy the photo op find on another blog: http://selftaughtartist.blogspot.com/

Looking good D. I like the tarp too - can that be incorporated into the final installation?
