Seascape Relief: Update 22
We finished the relief.
I signed my name to the bottom of the piece and gave the outside edges one final coat of lacquer. Then we stepped back and looked at it in the sun. We were all sweating profusely - it has been so hot this summer - the concrete outside the studio just absorbs and radiates heat. There was a long pause and finally the beasties went, "Wow." I stared at the large steel frame - still looking for little details that needed tweaking - and tried to accept the notion that the work was complete.
My patron was so excited to have it finished that he came by that day to pick it up - before I could even have it properly photographed. Transportation went smoothly. We picked a spot on the wine bar's wall, keeping in mind that there will be another relief beside it in a couple of months, and then Kelly and I began drilling holes. We placed the heavy-duty hanger and then hung the relief.
This is how it looked on the wall right after we installed it.
