The Title: Open Mind

The story line:

I was lucky enough to be invited to a team consisting of Kate Corning, Matt Long, Kirk Rademaker and Jeff Strong.

Ideas were tossed around and the decision was made to go with a single figure, artistic in nature, using some human proportion stretching for both lines and foreshortening. A goal was to take advantage of all of our individual strengths. It was a good call, we bacame a team soon as the shoveling started, and within a couple hours we were all pleased with the progress and results, and it only got better. A very unusual thing on the sand pile where giving birth to art is usually a painful process.
