I had forgotten about this sculpture from 20 years ago, using white, gray, and red clay. My son took the photos and emailed them down today (the shadows may be from stained glass front windows). I am reminded of tragedies in Japan and Haiti.

Missing my comments the last few days? I tried--many times. I tried so many times that Google said there was unusual activity (it was me trying to comment) and denied access to my email account. Then my blog disappeared for a while. All is straightened out now. While I was working on gathering tax papers, my husband was installing IE9 on the desktop and the laptop. With those upgrades, I could not post comments on either computer. Cussing didn't help.
For a while I thought the blog universe was getting even with me for a comment I posted on William Cook's site earlier this week--something like "Why does your second drawing remind me of my mother grinding sausage?" His drawings were beautiful; his words were about star charts, string theory, and Calubi-You manifold. What? Check out his blog.
Some of you might have thought I was prescient--first I paint a cemetery; then I disappear. I'm back. I'll catch up on comments soon.

I used the photo as reference but much got eliminated and even tombstones got moved. My original pastel sketch reminded me of Thomas Hart Benton.
hmm..........Thursday was my birthday and I was painting a graveyard.
