It’s a simple shape but it really struck me as just right. I bent the steel, looked at it, and said aloud, “That’s it”. Amazing how that happens.
I had to rework this one. Originally it had a really great patina but then rusted out. It was very mediocre. I ground it down and blued it. Followed by some paint and a sealant. I really like how this one ended up.
I’ve been on this jag for cubes. From straight-up cubes like Cube Farmer, to exploded cubes with Reclining Nude, Fractal Performer and Jackson Pollack’s Cubist Nightmare. Nessie is the last in that series. For now.
I won’t tell you what I saw but it rhymes with hat and is black and annoys the hell out of me in the morning when I’m trying to sleep. And likes to cuddle up between my legs at night.
