Highland cattle on a spring string

The sun shines, at last, and it feels like the right time to bring this blog to life after a bit of hibernation.

I am not making any promises, to myself or anyone. I have come to accept my own rhythm. This new highland cattle is a good example of how things work in the art corner. He has been standing on the kitchen counter for weeks. I picked at it, so to speak. First adding twine to his paper mâché body and then allowing the next step to demand attention.


This brings to mind a famous phrase from Star Trek: “Resistance is futile.” We so often resist the natural flow of our moods and inclinations. When man did not measure time, there was no perceived need to hurry.

There was a time when I would have kept one of these for myself, but I do not even feel that sort of attachment anymore. I have lived with him for weeks, given him life even, now he has matured and must go. I say “he,” not “it,” because all things have a life of their own in my book.

Highland bull of gentle disposition seeks loving home. He will guard and carry small treasures without question. Loves Celtic music, wool blankets and the company of books. Approximately 6″ high. $25. Current residence: Ornament Studio.
