Three hours of planishing and I have…crap. I’ve worked and worked and worked on this thing and was feeling like it was coming together. Last week I showed Sarah thinking I had only a round or two of planishing left before declaring this thing done. Oh no. She said it was coming along nicely, but I had several rounds to go. So today I went to the studio early to get a jump start on this. The bottom started looking nice, then came the sides and things went downhill. I couldn’t get my piece fitted on the stake. Then everyone started arriving for class which meant everyone around me started hammering. I couldn’t hear the metal. I couldn’t find my place. I wandered over to the other room hoping for some quiet. I got the quiet, but the piece just didn’t want to cooperate. Finally, I called it a day. I annealed it and put it in my locker for tomorrow.
To top it all off, it rained so now it’s really humid. So my hair looks like crap. It’s Monday.
