been collecting beautiful objects that seem to have an emblematic metaphorical reference.  A rough idea that will just have to test out near the resolution of the work in progress.  Great potential for items to be suspended from the rustic rafters and hooks on the ceiling, and little shrines throughout the room to generate more energy.

Cutting out and painting the small geometries that will adorn the negative spaces between larger pieces.  And crown any remaining portrayal Still desiring additional spirit to feel complete.


Found this cart in cable street that has proved very useful in keeping the necessary materials organized in these final stages when the emporium needs to remain fairly clear to maintain a coherent idea of what the final collection will look like.

Unfortunately had to take a several steps backward on a few pieces that were hastily started without proper priming and sanding.   The fact that some of these stages take 24hrs to cure,  and that certain things can only be done 1 day at a time means setbacks like these demand even more additional time than expected.


Planning to apply for an extension today,  in hope that we could be granted another week to do everything right and not leave feeling like i was on the verge of something fully realized but unable to follow through with it.
