Soon I will cut the lady's head open, brain salad surgery.

 This thing is getting heavy, thats a lot of clay.  Last night I put hair on her.  Next week I have 3 hours to finish the hair, add pupils and eyebrows and smooth it.  Then I cut cut it off at about the eye brows, straight through, lift off the top, hollow it out to about 1 inch thick and set it back on, blend the line so the cut line is gone, and done.  Then it dries a week or two and into the kiln.  Click on picture for a bigger view.    This was not modeled on anyone or photo, but a practice on various features, and exact proportions.  I think now I can make a recognizable bust from a photo or model.

    1. Now if only I could paint like you, and write songs like Dylan.

  2. Darrel,
    You ever thought about helping the police ID victims?


  3. This state is full of victims of the Republicans cuts in schools, infrastructure, state parks, state managed health systems, food programs, rural emergency services. It would take a team of workers to make a dent in ID'ing victims.
