A Watched Pot Never Boils
Fast forward to 11:30 the next morning when I realized it was still not dry. 12:30, still slightly damp, and finally an hour later, it was safe to take it down for the final trimming to size and facing. A watched pot, indeed, that would have benefited by being left alone until Saturday, but the due date for this piece has been pushed forward.
So now, I am packing up this lovely piece and will say good-bye to it as it passes to its new owners. After the opening, I will post full photos of both Marsh View and Farmlands - they have been a joyful exercise in creativity and focus. Over the past four weeks I have worked every day on these pieces, as each one took over 90 hours to complete. Time well spent...
