working away

 my workspace, in the beginning stage of making this new piece- you can see the armature, which has been covered with aluminum foil, and then masking tape to keep it in line. also always around, sketches, and my notes on proportion and anatomy, and, of course, coffee.
 pocket, who takes very detailed notes on the comings and goings of the birds, and the squirrel that daily runs along the fence outside the window, tempting her. one time it had a walnut.
 here is the piece, part-way through, unbaked
 this is my class study- this is after the third week, we have one more week of sculpting. i think i am going to take this class again, if i can. its so interesting to spend so much time, with the live model in front of you, concentrating on muscles, structure, and all that goodness.
 here is the sculpture, baked and ready for paint
 and here is a sneak of the painted sculpture. i am still deciding if she'll have hair or if the background will have dimensional bits. we shall see.

 and here are the cameos, which i still have a bit of work to do on.
this was a rather productive, yet mostly antisocial, weekend/week.
