However, I started back on Aerosmith's head the week after Christmas (in clay) . Still getting the eyes and both sides of his face to match up. Lyme does weird things to your brain~I am convinced! One day it looks perfect and great, the next, I see all sorts of mis-matched areas. So the past few sessions, I have taken to sitting at the window with no light on in the studio so I have one source of light and it's natural lighting. That has helped and I finally have his face right! I made his ears smaller, and am carefully referencing pics of his nostrils, etc. to get it all right.
I was just reflecting yesterday on how slooooowwwww I sculpt now. It's frustrating to feel like a tortoise trying to circumnavigate the globe, but a great day for me is actually getting to sculpt. I feel like a different person at the end of the day if I have gotten a few hours of sculpting in because I feel like I am moving toward my goal. It is a victory. I know I will get him done, it's just taking SO much longer than I wanted. My goal, of course in 2014 was to get him done, and I was convinced I would. I feel so discouraged that I failled. Yet another year has gone by and here I am, still working on him. But I am going to press on. This year, I really KNOW I am going to get him done! I am so close, if I just keep on keepin' on, he will get finished. Thank you again for your patience. I really want him off my plate so I can move on to so many other projects I desperately want (and need! For my sanity's sake!) to start! Happy 2015!
