Here are a few new stone sculptures. They are all translucent orange (salmon) alabaster. The candle holders look brilliant with the flameless LED candles. The stone glows a vibrant orange and red. They are all one of a kind. Sculptures are for sale at Farr Out Fine Art. Also, like my art on Facebook to see every time a new beautiful piece is finished.
We broke tradition this year and decided to go on a hike to Lake Blanche, Utah for Father’s Day/Dad’s Birthday. We don’t go as often as we used to, or nearly enough in general. It was a fantastic workout and gorgeous hike. As Dad says “Hiking isn’t just good for the body, but also for the soul.” And the pictures just don’t do it justice. The entire hike was secluded, green, and spectacular. It was a tough hike, but oh so worth it. We saw a few people on the way up, but when we got there we were completely alone which was mystical and will probably never happen again. A tip to those who enjoy nature and solitude, hike on a Monday morning.
Bells Canyon, Utah was kind of a spur of the moment hike. I wanted to go somewhere new. Little did I know, going somewhere new often means getting lost. We made it to the first reservoir without difficulty, then wandered off to an area that looked paved and trail-like until it got smaller and smaller and eventually disappeared. We did find some gorgeous areas that few people have ever seen. It was a fun little hike, but someday I will have to do the real thing.
Upon completion of my most recent sculpture I’ve decided it’s time to open shop. Visit my store here www.etsy.com/shop/FarrOutFineArt. I’m selling candle holder sculptures as well as dreadlock beads made from the amazing translucent orange alabaster.
I visited Angels Landing, Utah under unfortunate circumstances, though I am still very happy I got to experience it. My uncle passed away suddenly, so we planned a trip to St. George for the memorial and to scatter his ashes. He asked to have his ashes scattered on top of Angel’s Landing, a hike he and his brothers did when they were younger. Choosing to have your ashes scattered in such a place is a great idea. It brought the family together and got us to do something that probably would have never happened otherwise. It was an amazing hike! When people call it “extreme hiking” they are serious. The last stretch where you have to hold onto chains to keep from falling was pretty scary for some of us. I loved every moment of it. We even got a great family photo when we reached the top. The tragic event, in turn, gave us a great family experience and was a beautiful way to bring us together in his memory.
