I have been in Edmonton one year this month. One year. So far not much has gone as I expected it to, neither the renovations, the “work”, nor me. The thing that most surprises me is how much trouble I am having dealing with the combination of chaos and rigid order. I am not getting much done because I want to kick at the order and tame the and control the chaos. Neither is possible so why rail at it? Part of me doesn’t want to start anything because I am going to get interrupted anyway, so why bother. And then I get frustrated because I see myself frittering away time and opportunity when the interruptions don’t happen.
I do have the studio and get some time in it on my sisters good days. I have been working on the Pan doll. Here is the WIP so far.
Getting the torso sculpted was a challenge. I searched for my photos and couldn’t find them at first. Then I looked for some gay male magazines but they aren’t anywhere I shop. Lots of naked women but no boys. Most of my photos were from free Montreal add magazines promoting the bars and restaurants. They don’t seem to have an here. All I can find free is seniors and job placement handouts. I finally found a gay travel magazine that had a swimsuit segment – yeah abs! Then I found all my resource materials back. I know, I could have gone on line, I did that once. I really don’t want to do that again.
