Drawing of Nude Male Figure

Drawing of Nude Male Figure

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),

My mother took off this morning after a fun visit here in Texas. I hired a model on Tuesday and we even got to draw together. We have not done that in years.

This latest drawing in charcoal pencil from that session is of one of my favorite male models, Eric. He is a seated male nude. I love Eric’s long toes and his exotic eyes.
The paper is a greenish-grey paper and the figure drawing measures 14” x 10.”

Eric, the figure drawing, is available. I would love for him to find a good home.

Patina on Bronze Metal Sculpture

Cari Amici (Dear Friends),

I thought tonight that I might share more of my previous unveiling of the bronze patina process used on my newest figurative sculpture titled “Against the Dying of the Light.”

Last time you saw that in the beginning of the patination process, the bronze metal took on many mottled colors as it first felt the torch. But keeping the heat on and applying more of the chemical coloring (in this case, liver of sulfur) in a consistent manner gradually changes the metal.

He is coming along beautifully, this figure sculpture of a triumphant nude male.
