Today was my last day to work on this portrait with the live model present...this is what I got so far. For the most part it is finished. I would like to refine the surface a little more, maybe another hours work. I am very happy with the way it turned out. I feel good about the likeness, but might want to make her smile slightly--she looks a little gloomy.
Sculpting is such a relief from a busy, exhausting life. All stresses seem to melt away from this insanity when my fingers hit the clay.
