Drawing and Ice Heads

Its been more than 30 years since I have drawn from a live model. I always loved it.

This morning I spent two hours in a studio full of other artists DRAWING a 'live' model. It was both incredibly intimidating and intensely exciting. I made the mistake of looking around at several other artists drawings; I won't do that for awhile. But I loved it, just as I loved it many years ago and am looking forward to joining the class on a weekly basis.

I have included a picture of a recent sculpture that I am 'seasoning' with my special recipe of frozen water and time. Its a life size casting of a human skull that i covered in metal, painted and now it's up to mother nature to finish it.
