Fantastic Fingers Comming Soon!


That is the only thing I have thought of so far to call the newest piece I am working on.  It is inspired by the horns of a bull.  “A bull”, you ask?  Yeah, I said the horns of a bull.  I am going to post a picture of a bull with whom I have a close relationship.  I must at first set up a bit of the scenario for you.  I live in Ellensburg, WA which is widely known its Spirit of the West Rodeo Week.  Two years ago the First Friday for the month in which Spirit of the West Rodeo Week fell, I did a bull.  The title of the piece is:  “Introducing Leroy Gonzoles, Lets Get Ready to Rum-Boool!”.  So, without further ado….                            

Heeeere’s Leroy!   I was playing around with my granddaughter and my webcam a little over a week ago and I realized Leroy was on the wall behind me and he was showing up fairly well, so I played around with getting a shot of him and I together, hehe, and this is what I ended up with.  It gave me a good chuckle so I thought, well maybe it might just put a smile on someone else’s face, as well.  something tells me I am right, now that I have place him here.  Now, I am going to add another shot of my dear friend, Leroy Gonzoles, one that may do more than make you smile, hopefully the next shot of my “bovine compon-ye” (my phonetic rendering of a french word for company/buddy/friend who is companionable).

Here goes:

I did this part once before, hit publish and half of what I had written disappeared!  Lol, as if that had never happened before!  It has happened to me maybe a third of the times I have posted anything in this blog!  And I am sure, beyond doubt, that it is all my “non-techy” fault!   I manage to do something goofy, or clumsy, or forgetful, and time and energy, and undoubtably wonderful content just goes:  POOOFFF!! gone.  So I am not going to sweat the stuff I had written.  I am showing this picture of myself and Leroy because of “Fantastic Fingers”.   Last week I was telling a friend about the piece I am currently working on, and I asked her to remember how Leroy’s horns looked on the end, and imagine a piece with many similar “appendages” with shapes similar to the ends of he horns.  These Fantastic Fingers are pointing every which way but Sunday and the rest of the story is yet to be born.  I have thought of perhaps doing a “work in progress” type of picture for the purpose of explanation that words can come not nearly close enough to really do something justice.  But that would not be nearly as much fun.  I do love words, and the power of artistic licence.

      Thanks for the appreciation! Leroy is my Bud! “Fantastic Fingers” is coming along nicely, I have reached a stage I call “fired up” and have been putting in long hours on it. It is a complex, dense piece and I am very pleased with it. I need to drop in to your Facebook page to see what you are up to lately!

    Leroy is FABULOUS! Thanks for the smiles… love the shot of Leroy as your mask!

      Yes, Leroy brings me much pleasure every time my eyes light upon his noble brow! Did you notice a couple of spots, kind of light brown, those are beads intended to represent bugs, flies maybe, lol. He is one of my favorite ever, ever, ever pieces!
