Yes. That's my foot, and the very first bronze I made.

Actually I made it all the way, from the clay modeling up to getting it ready for metal pouring. I was attending a workshop at a local art college on bronze casting. It was valuable nands-on experience. Unfortunately the college discontinued this workshop after our session, a big loss for the local art community.

My close-up photo, brighter? I'm afraid I don't have any, other than the one next to my man in agony. But as mine is not a young handsome face, why is it worth seeing?

Re: What do ya all look like?

Tobias- Nice pic- I thought it was a pic out of magazine. Lots of ab crunches, eh?

Merlion- We're all artists here and appreciate the beauty of age and how it shows a life well lived with the wrinkles and lines of laughter. And your not old anyway! I'm with Scout on this one!

Re: What do ya all look like?

HappySculpting, you are such a sweet person. And talented!

I was thinking that several folks on here could be models! A bunch of good looking and feisty people we are in general. I wonder what Oscar looks like and how he's doing...high or low? Scout

Re: What do ya all look like?

Thank you Scout. Yes a fiesty= passionate group we are. All that energy and stick-tuitiveness goes into sculpture! Let's keep it up.

Ya, Oscar is a mystery. We all wonder about him. Was he for real? If he is, maybe he's still around and will post a pic of himself.

Ya, and you too! You're huge!

I've always worked out but didn't know really how to do it well until I hired a personal trainer and he put me on a concentration camp diet of mainly oatmeal, chicken, rice, salads, eggs, salmon, and protein shakes. Everything was regimented and the work outs drove me to nearly puke. If you puked he'd give you a tee shirt with his logo on it for a puking gift. Well, anyway, I finally decided I better get to making this a lifestyle and have been working out on my own for over a year now and maintaining much of what I had. Mainly I just want to be healthy and prevent osteoporosis from weight bearing exercise. Plus keep the heart healthy.

Re: What do ya all look like?

Here's a second pic of your little girl- she must be the light of your life. That's great. Wonder what she will be with all the creative juices she's sees coming out from you.

You are a little guy that does way big stuff- love those horses that you've done. -Just beautiful. If we were standing side by side, I'd be 1" taller, yeah! I love being taller! I'd be teasing and razzing you. Gotta do it! But your muscles are bigger so I better watch out! I pretty well live in shoes that have heals, whether it's flip flops or sandles, whatever. I'm guilty of "heightening" (Seinfeld) .

Any more pics of you guys? How about Fritchie?

Re: What do ya all look like?

I'm sorry Eric That red hair is fantastic!

I was remembering what you said about your little girl having aspirations of, among other things, being a flute player and so just assumed this was her. You are a blessed guy with the 2 little ones (any more?)

I love kids but do not have any of my own. I call my sister's 3 kids my own because we are really close. I love it when they accidentally call me mom. My husband is 24 years older than me (older than my parents) and all his kids are grown. So... starting another family is the question at hand. Anyway, when I see other people's kids (well behaved ones ) I get all envious and wish I had some. But it's a huge step to have children and doing my art would be difficult. Now if I had a "man-wife" to take care of my kids for me then I'd be all set! Just kidding!

Your kids look so full of life and happiness. Congrats to you.

~Tamara

Hey Tamara,

What are you talking about "more of me"? Do you want some nude shots or something?

Re: What do ya all look like?

Ah! I've found a full body photo of me, nearly in the buff. Not much muscles to show I'm afraid.

I got some help to create a sculpture, perhaps one of my first sculptures.

Re: What do ya all look like?

Graham- "There's still a more of you all" - the key word is "all"- my little way of trying to get more people to post pics of themselves. But I can see how the wording could be taken other ways.

Cute Merlion! The beginning of your sculpting career was on the beaches, eh? That's a wonderful old photo. Thanks for sharing. (Now we need one just like it but today and little bit closer up! ;-)

Iron Ant- Sounds like your kids are really a part of the studio experience. I guess it can be done but it seems like it would be hard to concentrate. I have kids over sometimes and help them sculpt and it is so much fun but I'm in a whirlwind, spinning from one child to the next and I get worn out pretty fast.

Re: What do ya all look like?

I had this whole thing written up making comments to everyone who’s posted in this thread, then submitted it and ‘poof!’ it disappeared into the cyber ether without a trace. So I rewrote the whole thing again, hit the submit button and it happened again!
I give up.

Here’s a very short version - watch, it’ll work this time.

You folks all look like such interesting people to meet and its a pleasure to get to see your faces, thanks for posting them.

Re: What do ya all look like?

Oh.... Mountain Song, that's awful! I've had that very same experience happen before and then retype the whole thing and then hit a wrong key and lose it all.

I wish that wouldn't have happened to you because I really would have like to read what you had to say. I know it would have been an interesting read. I think you're such an intelligent person and I always enjoy your slant on things.

Something that I do sometimes when I write a long comment is to highlight it and hit copy before submitting it. One time I hit "Cut" instead and to my dismay, poof again!

Not my shop though....it's at Cranbrook, and is way too neat to be my space. Here's a recent photo of my shop.
