This year, as every year, when winter nears its end I have sculpture projects to finish up for the new season. Temples are in my mind and on the drawing board. Garden Temples where the altar space is left open, to be used in one's own way to honor the sacred as one perceives sacred. I will have photos soon. And then there is the new medium of encaustic that I have fallen in love with. My new home and studio led me to finally realize my love of painting with beeswax. Here are some of my new encaustic paintings...

In the meantime, I am busy working on two commissions. The first one is a three foot mask fragment of a Greek God. The maquette is almost finished...still working on the eyes, obviously. After I finish the whole head, I will cut it in half and begin breaking it until I have just the right fragment shape. The negative space, what's not there, being just as important as what is there. My next commission is for an ear, nose and throat clinic. I'll wait to say any more on that commission till its further along. I'll give you a hint, they are not interested in a four foot nose or throat.www.studiobridges.com
