Progress has slowed as I have indecision about the use of some scrap that was painted red (that heavy-duty skin of a playground coating). It is great stock for the sculpture but the color might provide for undesirable visual distraction. Been considering either burning it off or hoping I can ignore it and just move forward (or perhaps wait til I salvage some appropriate lengths of unpainted steel...which brings the element of luck into the mix). So sessions of "go-time" have yet to begin. The chalk drawing has been washed away, further yet predicting that the piece will move in a different direction.
