#87, Anastasia relief

"Anastasia", 28"x14"

Anastasia was sculpted earlier in the year and today I spent most of the day casting it. Cast in urethane resin I decided to try adding more pigments to the mix as I have been struggling with the reliefs not reading well without over head lighting. Although quite a bit bolder than what I normally would do I think I'm happy with it.

#86, Confidence relief

Confidence, 24"x 11.25" x 3", resin

For the last 4 weeks I have not been at the studio due to what started as panic attacks and after getting this under control the dr. found a large 1.1cm kidney stone. NO FUN!!! SO, I haven't created much art for the last few weeks, but I did manage to mold and cast this mid-relief. Although I usually focus my efforts on the clothed figure I decided to create a nude to change it up a bit. What I like about the clothed figure is the contrast the drapery has against the usually smoother skin. With the nude sculpture, there is no option to play with this contrast.
