I re-rendered Amelia’s feet because they were so completely off. This is much better, they’re feet that someone could actually stand on now. I separated the legs a touch, too, and added some white to the ground around the new feet. I’ll need to rework the rocks upon which she stands later.

I’m curious about my role producing fine art objects, when I’m simultaneously reducing my need for material. I’m beginning to grasp the value of making very simple changes – the movement of one rock from the ground to a new position upon another rock, for example. Isn’t a simple act like that is much of a creative decision as any other change we make to the world? The butterfly flaps its wings in Tibet and a hurricane starts in Cuba. Ohhhhm…
