#224 In the studio: How I work

Typically, I have at least forty or more sculptures in various states of completion in progress at one time.  Bird subjects
alone include Great Blue Heron, Little Blue Heron, Green-backed Heron, Canada Geese,  Ruffed Grouse, Bufflehead Ducks, Bobwhite Quail, Common Tern, roosters, macaws, 
Bald Eagle, pelicans, pheasants, Roadrunner, Mockingbird, doves, wild turkeys, and more. 

I move around the studio, or take a model down from a shelf, tweaking and making adjustments as the urge inspires me.
New reference, realization, in-the-field experiences or deadlines initiates finishing the piece and taking it to mold.

At right is a study of a Great Blue Heron in progress.
