#77, untitled dancer, relief

untitled dancer, 17"x23", clay for urethane resin

This is the latest bas-relief that is now being molded in silicone. The second relief using model Cami (passion being the first), I decided that I needed to do more of a portrait of her since she has wonderful facial features as well as being a wonderful dancer. The process of making this relief was the same as creating Awakening in that more time was spent on the face and head than on the remaining parts of the relief. It is also about the same dimensions as Awakening and raised from the background the same at 7/8". I am continually inspired by movement, portraits and the beauty of drapery and this relief gave me a chance to express all of these interests.
