Prix de West

Me, my sculpture and my friend Connie, the model for this piece.
I finished my sculpture workshop today with John Coleman at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. I have learned so much. It has really been an incredible learning experience. To day I worked on my sculpture of our model Connie, a Seminole/Pawnee. It still needs work but I am pleased with how it is progressing.
My sculpture and the model.
I said that this is a sculpture of Connie, but it really is not a sculpture of him, it is a sculpture that I used him as a reference for. I have made him as a Pueblo Indian with a bandanna and buffalo skin robe.Of course I made him look older and like he has had a harder life than the model.

 We toured the Prix de West Show today. It is really incredible. John has three sculptures and a sketch in the show. The show overall is one of the best ones that I have seen in several years. I will try to come up here and see it again before it ends.

  1. What a great opportunity! Your Indian bust of great. You must do some more heads. Really like your hay bales from Waxahachie. Olivette

    1. I have had so much fun creating these busts. Working with a great model is a huge help.
