What can I's been a busy month for me. Unfortunately for this blog not much of it was art related. Since I only had one lonely post in the middle of the month I felt the need to post at least one more. This is from a growing collection of unfinished sculpture from life. It's a 12" figure in Sculpy that has been baked. It's a total of 9 hours of work from the model, normally it should be a minimum of 18 hours. As unrefined as it is there are some gestural qualities that I do like .

Dipsea Trail

Sunday's plein air painting, somewhere on the Dipsea trail of Mount Tamalpias. We decided to set up near a small stream surrounded by towering trees covered in fury moss. The lighting was low key for the duration of this study except for about 10 minutes when the sun peered through the canopy of trees and illuminated a small part of the creek. Which was absolutely stunning. Another thing I found challenging was painting ferns for the first time.
