Now that I have finished beating myself up for not posting in September, I have managed to drag my battered body to the laptop. September was going to be a photo finish from the start with small travel and commission (October, I think I’ve got you). I thought a simple bird would be quick and my blog efforts would be consistent and satisfied…sorry September. Despite my longing to be simple, she became more than a bird.
The Dali Exhibit opened in August and I was able to join the crowd in line for two blocks waiting to enter. Once we reached the courtyard, the night lights in the trees and flamenco guitar of Witold Tulodziecki created a festive gathering (lots of creative costumes).
I was never much of a Salvador Dali fan but he was a fascinating ego. Dali was the master of surrealism. He was amazingly scientific with his approach. I can’t attribute this subject as influence from him or his show however in true Dali surrealistic form; I created this Peregrine Dancer.
This Peregrine Dancer offers her own interpretation. For the falcon who trains in falconry, I have to summarize that the bird revels in the accomplishment of the sport or would simply fly away. Falconry is the only sport that utilizes a wild animal. It is estimated that 10,000 individuals practice falconry.
“Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it.” Salvador Dali
