the magic of sticks

As a friend of mine might say when he is looking forward to something...

I am gently excited to say that I'm going to be one of a group of volunteers creating one of these magical works of art....

Patrick Dougherty
is bringing his wizardry to Fresno to install a work on the
 Fresno State Campus in November and my 
 friend joyce ,
 from Imagine Joy Art, and I have '
volunteered to work a couple of days.

I say gently as in I am going to have no expectations.  

I am just going to enjoy the adventure.
Expectations have gotten in my way a little bit lately

I watched a couple of videos of him talking about how he creates in order to get an idea of what working with him will be like...
and he says he doesn't always have a clear vision when he starts...
he allows the work to flow..

So Inclined

 Over the past thirty years, Patrick has built 230 of these whimsical sculptures all over the world
They stand for about two years before before nature takes them away.
