Yesterday 6/25/2014 I finished the last of the big sculptures, my "Thinker", for the "Art Meets Science 2014" show for the MDI Bio-Lab. I was going to deliver tomorrow but it is supposed to rain all day tomorrow. So today seemed like a better idea, it felt and looked like it was going to rain....but I brought my raincoat........

 Yesterday I loaded the Thinker up on the truck.  I like this photo as you can see the tripod behind the crane. I made the tripod about five years ago out of discarded ceder Logs discarded from a logging area. It has about worn out its use. I did tip it over last week. That was something, time to make a new one.
I did not have time to actually fit the sculpture to the pedestal.....fortunately everything went together very well on site for the first time. Just that easy.
The Thinker is carved from granite called Dakota Mahogany, The base is a local granite from Sullivan Maine.
