Wow...I just realized it's been since Easter that I posted a new journal entry.
I've been spending more (too much probably) time on Facebook so I apologize for my absence from Deviant Art.
I've been working on some small commission work in addition to doing some freelance patina work for people that bring me their
bronzes. It's nice to stay in touch with the outside world. (outside meaning outside my studio)
I tend to get a little too used to working by myself so I have to force myself to get out in to the public and
not be such a recluse. It is nice to be able to wear sweats and stink without any repercussions. Except for my wife though.
It's looking like I'll be getting some big commission work by the end of the year. One of my favorite clients in Kauai wants me to sculpt
some realistic wildlife for an exhibit at the garden's there. She hasn't decided on scale but it will probably be 1/2 to 1/3 scale.
There will be a bald eagle, deer, moose, seal, and a bear with a salmon in it's mouth.
Should be a challenge and fun as well.
As many of you know I pretty much do whimsical, and fantasy kind of work so this will push my abilities as an artist.
My wife and I have been enjoying the first part of spring and are looking forward to summer as well.
We've already been on some great bike rides and nature walks.
We get daily duck visits at our house here but now it's turned in to squirrel mayhem.
I created some monsters by feeding our squirrels walnuts by hand.
They come running to me whenever I come outside now and will hang out on my lap if
I let them.
I might become the Willard of the squirrel world and have them do my bidding.
Don't cross me.
It's always fun to be able to meet fellow Deviant Artists in person and last week was no exception.
Ray Lin aka
brought his buddy Mike here to visit and hang out and meet our 'kids'. (furry ones)
Two great guys and incredibly talented to boot!
It always gets me fired up to hang out with fellow sculptors.
Except Tim Miller of course. I somehow feel violated every time we meet in person.
Should be finishing up the Seahorse this week and bringing my bust titled Count Veektor to the mould maker.
I've got too many pieces just sitting in the studio collecting dust and I need to get off my butt and get them in production.
Okay, back to the studio. My cat decided my lap and my laptop computer is where he wants to nap right now. Extrmelyz deffixult to typr now
Thanks for all the messages, faves, llama badges, new watches and support!
All my best,
Enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend!
