The winner of the APG bust raffle drawn at the Gettysburg Show was Randy Myers. He has elected to have me sculpt a portrait bust of Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana. I'm looking forward to this project especially since Randy has elected to paint the sculpt himself so it's more of a collaborative thing. Looking forward to starting the sculpt soon.

More progress on this piece since returning from a great time in Gettysburg, PA to support the Artist Preservation Group's first fundraiser/show.
Still tweaking things on the face and building up the hair. I'm starting to think about painting the make up and getting the effect of the skin showing through. Should be fun and could be a great way to use the non-mixing qualities of acrylics and oils to effect. Hmmmm......

More progress on one of my current sculpts. Starting to really refine the features now. As I tentatively start adding hair, more symmetry issues become apparent that will need to be addressed. I'm pleased by the straight jacket so far. More soon. I may even finish sculpting this one before I leave for Gettysburg. We'll see....
