More work done on getting the basics down on this portrait. Slow going, but I'm enjoying the freedom and fiddling that the super sculpey is allowing me for endless tweaking. Getting closer now...A likeness isn't so much about the features as it is how the features meet with and interact with each other and the overall shape of the face. This is a hard lesson to learn and as I proceed to take my lumps thinking I've got it, only to realise later that I was wrong. Anyway, I push on....

Here are a few pics of a bust I recently painted and displayed at the MFCA show in Valley Forge, PA this past weekend. It was a great show and I enjoyed seeing alot of old friends and meeting some new ones, too. Lynnette was a trooper and made the trip with me. Thanks to Joel Glass and the whole MFCA gang for making us feel at home and putting on a great show.
