Approaching Storm The Clay is ---FINISHED---



Putting the finishing touches to the clay today. Delivering it to the foundry on Tuesday of this week. I'm making a change in how I video my work for Youtube. A person who purchased my Instructional DVDs asked a pertinent Question, "Why am I paying for one of your DVDs, when I can get information for free on Youtube". I must say, I've been struggling with that question as well. So I'm making a change in how much I put on Youtube in the future. You'll still see progress on what I'm doing and small snippets of me working on clays, but I won't be putting up videos showing me working fully on the clays. I do have Instructional DVDs where I spend hours going into detail of what I'm doing to create my clays. You can get valuable information on those DVDs.. You can review the ones I have now here at this link.

Approaching Storm Working on the Front Legs and Chest



Continued cleaning up and fine tuning the front legs. I never really finished the clay about 3 years ago. So basically, I am finishing up the clay for the foundry.

Approaching Storm Continuing to Fine Tune



Short day of sculpting. My right hand really hurts at times and I had to call it quits because of that today. I'll be fine tomorrow.. If I start earlier, it won't hurt as bad.

Approaching Storm Detailing Finished One Horse Setting up the Second H...



Spent today finalizing the front horse of this complicated clay. I then prepared to work on the second horse for tomorrow. I needed to get back on my new instructional DVD that I'm putting together on "Creating a Horse from Scratch". It will be a two DVD Video. First I made a meatloaf for Dinner before getting back to editing..

Approaching Storm Detailing Working on the front Horse Today



I took the clay of "Approaching Storm", apart, to work on the front horse by itself. I designed the piece to be taken apart for the convenience of working on the complete clay. Also it would help the foundry when they make a mold of the clay for the bronze.

Approaching Storm Detailing Brother Stops by Gold Panning on the Rub...



Today, I worked on "Approaching Storm", correcting an arm that fell off at some point in the past couple of years. Added a shield... and back filled. Then my brother Kevin, his wife Linda, and their daughter Kelly stopped by my house. We hadn't seen each other since Kelly was a newborn, 16 years ago. We went to lunch then to Virginia City, and finally near Nevada City, Kelly did a bit of Gold Panning on the Ruby River. Didn't find much gold but found a lot of Ruby Red Garnets.
