Dead Roses

I have a vase of dead roses on the big table in my studio.  I was going to throw them out and pick something in the garden, but I like dead roses so I'm keeping them for a while. 

I finished carving a wax tonight of a thumb ring for my friend Tracy.  It's a textured band shaped for the thumb and set with a greenish black star sapphire.

I'll be concentrating on the platypus sculpture  for  a while.  I really like very long projects.

I'm not planning to working wax for the next 2 days, so I put my wax bench away.  It tends to take over the room, psychically as much as any other way, so it always feels very open when it's gone.

On another note, I walked across the Golden Gate Bridge yesterday.  I've lived here for over 20 years and this is the first time I've done it.  Perfect day and great views...very full eyes.

I'm thinking very hard about the remnant nova.  I have beautiful opal fragments for it.  It's making me think about other ways to use opal fragments in my work.

Today felt a little scattered, I did a mixture of wax work, setting and writing.  I'm more comfortable with less varied time.
