Autumn Begins

i tried to cast her in plaster… well, as she was my very first try, she did not turn out as expected, and that is why i made the tutorial for my second casting … but at least,,, i rescued her face,,, and, since first tries are alwas special, i mounted her on a wooden board, for memory …

    Doris, you are so talented. I am not an art critic by any means, but this bust has a ‘hold’ on me. There is something about her eyes that make me feel as if she has has experienced a great loss, but is still looking forward, not to the past. There is a determination in the way her jaw is set. She seems to be a very steadfast person.

    I don’t know if this is how you wanted her to come across, I thought I’d let you know what she brings out of me. I am looking forward to the carving and the progress photos that you always publish.

      hello doug, … yes this goes along the lines what i wanted express with this bust. i am glad she speaks to you in this direction. thank you for letting me know … yes, i plan to carve her, but first i want cast her in plaster. i made some tryouts and those went well, so i dare now to cast her. and, then i will carve her, if i can catch only a little bit of what is in the clay bust, i will be happy…yes, i will post progress pics, but will take a time. i am still on the mucha panel working, and i need get that out of the way first, so to speak… it is nice to hear from you again
