Sculpture on Hold

I'm putting my sculpture on hold because I haven't worked on anything else at all this month. KING LEONIDAS is up on auction at discount. I need to start making new paintings.

I've put aside my plastic sculpture until august and I'm feeling inspired to do some big canvases this coming month, so watch this space. I'm sorry I haven't blogged much but I got engulfed by my sculpture project and obsessed over it exclusively. I had to pull myself away from it. It was just too much. I never expected it to be this much work.

Tribute to Michel Legrand


Took a break from my sculpture to work on a couple small paintings, I made this one while listening to 'Les Demoiselles de Rochefort', my favourite soundtrack. Michel Legrand inspired this painting and when I was young, I was a little like Maxence from the Jacques Demy movie. I think Legrand outdid himself in 'Rochefort', surpassing even his score for 'Parapluies de Cherbourg'.."MICHEL LEGRAND" is now on eBay.

My sculpture is progressing slowly. The base material is plastic, so much care is taken in cutting perfect circles and chamfering edges. I think it will surprise many people when it's ready.

Tomorrow I'm going to buy some Weldon-3 glue to start putting some pieces together. This sculpture is taking up a LOT of my time because I want to get it just right. I'll have Maggie put it on eBay when it's ready, but it won't be cheap. It represents a lot of work.

SOLD!

Sculpture

I apologise for the lack of updates. I am currently involved in a sculpture project and the level of detail makes it very involved. I estimate the sculpture will be done in over one month, which is when I will be back to painting full time.
