“Come Sit Beside Me and Be Still,” is part of a current clay series I am completing. Made of clay, acrylic paint and nail polish lacquer, the series features the hunted deer as a recurrent motif or emblem.
Two other pieces, Cavatina and Troika 1, were completed last year. The title was prompted, perhaps, by the constant rush I see around and the plea for the forgotten need to simply sit and be still.

The 10 pieces (see photo), so far, I’ve completed since I started this series almost a year ago. Had I made two more, I could have 12 pieces by now. But having a day job and exclusively working at nights, some errands and petty excuses slowed me down.
But there were also other pieces that I finished outside this series, including the Wild Heart clay series of deer. Five of the ‘child head’ series were sold, one going to Hawaii (for a beach vacation :-)] and the rest will be included in my next upcoming exhibit in March…

DYLAN is the 10th piece in my on-going clay and assemblage works. Basically an experiment in material use, this piece required two (medium size ) sacks of gummy wine candies.
