Homage is finished, mounted and waxed and photographed.
Next sculpture is started -- a very tough walnut, 9"x9" x 2". My friend Allen cut a 6" diameter hole for me and I am off on a voyage of discovery working from sketch ideas but (as usual) letting the piece tell me how it should look. Sculptures only work if they look good from every angle. At this stage I have some good views and some "Nahhh!"
I was asked how many pet portraits I had completed so I counted them. 28 dogs, 2 cats and a horse. Plus 9 people and 48 house portraits.
