Small Portraits

This summer I had the opportunity to sculpt some portraits (1/2 life size) of two friends and art patrons of mine, Francois & Sharon. I started the portrait of Sharon at a demonstration I did at the Lake Oswego art festival in Oregon and it was only natural to have her make it to my studio to finish the portrait and also sculpt her husband Francois.

During August my grandparents came for a visit from Houston, Texas (they so enjoyed the break from the heat). Shortly before they left I had them each sit in my studio for a few hours while I quickly sculpted their portraits. I have been wanting to sculpt them for years and didn't want pass by the opportunity I had this time. They are studies in progress.
