The next year, I think it was 2006 I figured out that if you went down before the parade most of the people in costumes where all gathered together at the staging area for the floats. So i could talk with them and they were happy to show off their costume. Even though many of them were on their way to getting plastered I was catching them early, from then on when the parade started, I went home.


The first year I went down to Soulard for Mardi Gras I saw a few people in costumes, but mostly  found drunks, or people trying to get that way as fast as possible.  I did find this guy. He didn't say anything but what a great costume

I realized after "the Stand" was finished that it was quite Phalic so I thought I need a piece to represent Woman. So a Woman is about relationships or the Heart issues, So that is the Title of the above piece "A Woman's Heart"
It is turned then carved, I learned Gun checkering  to get the texturing.

The above Sculpture "The stand" was the transitional piece. combining turned and carved work.  using again some of the ideas seen in Seattle. It sold almost immediately.
