I traveled up to Vermont College for several reasons. The Dick Hathaway sculpture that I am creating was a part of my study at Vermont College. I graduated on November 1st. I presented two lectures one at Vermont College and one for the T.W. Wood Gallery. Both were about sculpting the deceased, the process and the research for my book “Bringing to Life the Spirit of the Deceased—A Sculptor’s Journey”. I especially liked the TW Wood lecture as many friends of Dick Hathaway were there. It was good to have their inspiration. To be fed stories about Dick Hathaway refreshed me. I’m looking forward to getting back to the sculpture. It should be done in about a month or so.

My presentation. There were two.
One was for school and the other for the gallery.

The photograph that I created of the progress on Dick Hathaway now resides at the TW Woods. The sculpture needs a bit of work and there is going to be a pile of books near his foot. The question is, “What are the names of the books?”

In the audience were two empty seats with roses. One for Richard Hathaway.
The other rose was for my sweet instructor Charlotte Hastings.
It was a very small graduation class. I was glad it was over. I loved my study on emotions, sculpting and the interaction with the deceased. I can’t wait for my book to be published.
