Wow, What a Last Few Months

These last few months have been mega creative.

Two new paintings of the National Parks series. The book Behind the Paint - National Parks 2014 is in the final edit, once corrected, then off to the press and on to Amazon.

Plus I have completed two of the three new pinch model sculptures of my couples series. The last sculpture # 3 is almost completed. I say that considering it has taken me four days and I have torn it apart at least a dozen times. It was speaking to me, but I was not listening. I think I am finally in tune with the clay again.

The paintings are ready to go to the galleries, and the sculptures will be ready for me to make the molds and cold cast (bonded bronze) them myself.

Here then are my latest creations. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have in creating them.

A new year brings new possibilities

Over the years I have been asked to do some sculptures of Couples. This year is the year. Infact I have almost completed my first one. 

I thought I would do them as a Pinch Model series, that way without a lot of upfront money spent I can produce three or four new pieces for the galleries. If people like them and want larger ones in hot cast bronze, I can create them and have the money from the clients to pay for the foundry. If there is no interest in the series, or in larger ones, no big money lost. 
Having a good time on this series.
