Detail from one of the works I saw while visiting Ceil Sturdevant's studio tonight. The hands stand over two feet high, and when they are shown, there is a female figure suspended above them - floating, rising, supported. Today there were just the hands, and when I had a moment I sat and drew them. Later I found out that the sculpture's name is "communion" - which also seemed appropriate for the gathering of women at Ceil's house this evening. Good company, good food, good discussion - our book group.
