June Days

Below are process photos of the work from this last week or more. I finally have reached a point where I have nearly everything in the right place. I've battled the armature a few more times that I would have liked, but this is just the way it is. To refine and build the work often takes the courage to destroy and pull out what is not necessary and then rebuild. It isn't much different than what we have to do in our own lives as people if we allow ourselves to be malleable. Pain encountered in the process of personal growth is not withheld from the life of the Saints.
