Summer Sculpture fun

Here is a progress dump of sculpture stuff from the end of the semester and into the summer.
Here is the cow head in oil clay. I showed this one in an earlier post.
It is larger than my previous cow heads and is meant to replace them.
With Brush on Silicone

Beginnings of mother mold. it will be 3 parts

Home made Chevant melting box so that I dont have to buy a
toaster oven. I am starting to work with hard chevant clay.

Bald mini chevant head on a screw
Looking like Sir Patric Stewart.  I think I will keep working
on him as such. Just practicing detail with the chevant on a
small scale.. no real plans for this.
Random shelf in my studio

Small clay model for my large foam dog I was working on.
It's raining foam!!- I want to continue with this project but it
is so messy!

Yep. Those are the highlights. Pretty simple. I have been doing more painting than sculpting this summer but I am playing with the chevant and finishing up the new cow heads.

Art Focus!

Here is another progress pic of my oil painting in progress... it's been slow and steady. I have been working on it here and there while getting some other work done this month. I added some detail to the water droplets on the cows nose today. :)

It is very fun to watch.
