#71 In the Studio: Making molds and modeling from life

Last week while Trish worked on molds of the Lab Bookends and and the two Gambels Quail, I started a sculpture of my Brittany, Penny.

This is one situation where I don't have to research my subject or delve into my extensive scrap file that I keep in the Canadian studio.  I'm modeling her from life which is why domestic animals are the ultimate subject matter:  You can't handle or get up close and personal with a grizzly.

I want to capture her noble spirit, her classic look and the burning desire to hunt that I experience with her in the field.

My fear is that I won't do her justice.
