This stick sculpture needs to loosen up. They do seem to be into each other and dancing close but, why so stiff? Maybe they are just learning or uncomfortable having their picture taken. It could be a first time or a chaperone is watching closely. The other twigs and sticks might be scrutinizing every move. No leaves might make them feel naked? Wrong music?
Could it be that’s how they grew and how they are and that’s the way they like to dance?
Upside down. Most of the dancing wood sculptures are sticks turned upside down. Funny how the natural seems more human when it’s flipped over. These sticks are presented the way they grew. I refer to them as kickers since one “leg” of each stick “person” is kicked up.
Used individually they make cool hooks for hats or coats. I’ll do a post of some of those in the future.
This stick piece of stick art balances without the base. The little sculpture can slip into the base for added stability. Not sure if it looks better in it or out of it.
The balance was the important part so I didn’t want to attach a permanent base to it.

Many of these dancing stick couples have been completed recently. Time to post the finished pieces. There are similarities and differences as you will see. This blogging as a means of record keeping is working for me. I agree with my critics that my writing style needs work. Whatever! Having images to save and share as well as dates and other documentation is far better than the notes I tried keeping when this artwork thing started to happen.
