Author’s Note: To get the full effect of the title, say “Cows” like Dug says “Squirrel”.
It may be a while before I live down shaving my head. I had a therapy appointment on Thursday and my therapist gave me “the look.” Co-workers are just now starting to mention it. “Ah, Tara… Are you okay? That’s a pretty… drastic… haircut. Did something happen?”
I’m making the most of it though. I now have a “well, at least I didn’t” standard that I think I can work with for a couple years.
Case in point. Hula Hooping Cows.
A few weeks ago, I got a message from someone at the city of Keizer (where I live) saying they were looking for metal art about four cows to go in a new roundabout here in town. Now, I have always had a secret desire to do a sculpture, but I don’t want to learn to weld. Or sculpt. Or carve. Or… well… anything else.
For some reason, the idea intrigued me. I started to play with it.
Grazing cows… Running cows… Dancing cows… Hula Hooping Cows.
That is pretty much where my mind went WHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
So, I spent my evenings sketching ideas and made a phone call a day to figure out how my idea might be put into action.
In the end, I am proposing four Hula Hooping cows.
I am providing the option of plain steel cows…
Or powder-coated cows (I like this one better).
I need to make a couple more phone calls, but the price will be between $9,400.00-$11,800.00. That includes the steel fabrication, installation (professional), and a commission for me. The price difference is if they go for powder coating or not.
The chances of this actually being installed are low, but I had a GREAT time playing with it. (At least I didn’t shave my head…)
Which option would you choose? Which cow is your favorite?
