The purpose of this post is just to rant.
I passed by my latest geode last night, the large purple one, and it was gone! …What the hell? I’m perplexed on this one—it stood up to the kind of heavy rain a day after it went in, it’s in a piece of obsolete pay phone encasing, and it was pretty. This is the most frustrating of the bunch because either it was stolen purely because someone really loved it and wanted it for their own or because the city is a bunch of dicks and said, “We just can’t have this art just sitting in this city property, harumph”. They had to go through the trouble of tearing it out because it was glued too.
This is incredibly frustrating in every way. I really don’t care that they don’t last long for other reasons besides just plain being taken. I work incredibly hard to make these and spend all my extra time and don’t have much free time besides half the weekend. I’m feeling like I took big steps forward last week with new work and a little press only to take twice as many giant steps back this week. I feel like people are bad, coming at me from all sides and personally attacking me (this comes from other issues in addition!).
Anyways, the conclusion I’ve come to is that I’m going to finish the ones I have going right now and not do them any more. At least the way that I’m doing them. It’s so much work and only four still exist—three of which I was actually asked to do. I am, however, attempting to create them in other ways that do not take as long, but they will look completely different. Idea still there, method dead.
