Before you envision me as a depressed artist having a realization of hopelessness, descending down to the end of my pitiful rope, the fun part comes in dealing with the material.

When molded, painted, and placed correctly, the results can be beautiful, unique, and worth the double take it wouldn't have earned previously.
Unlike in most of the previous posts, this investigation will continue. Thus far, I've only made one piece that is a wood-based work, but there will be more soon. In the mean time....
