Emotional Overload

Contemplation, clay bust, ©1988
Hello dear blog readers, after my last blog my father had a stroke and I was lucky enough to be able to travel the 700 miles to be with him and help my family for awhile. I am glad to report that he is regaining some speech and we can talk on the telephone. He has also been able to help my Mom again, since she had a stroke last November.

At the same time, Jeff was accepted in the Masters Degree program at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. After much discussion, we decided that we would sell our home and land that we dearly love so that we would not miss this opportunity.

I have finally had to deal with the things I have had stored for twenty years since I can't possibly keep everything. I have been on an emotional roller coaster since April and have not created any art. I did find this sculpture that I made in college. I decided not to keep it, but I took pictures before I gave it away. No, it is not a self portrait, I don't know the name of the girl who posed for our class, but she had great red hair. I thought it still looked fairly good, especially since it was the only portrait bust I have ever done!

I think I am feeling better and plan to be posting blogs more frequently in the future.
