Celebration, a commission of a couple soon to enjoy their 50th wedding anniversary, is out of the studio and off to the mold maker. For over six weeks, their clay presence has filled the room, dominated my thoughts and activities, and created an ongoing dialogue within and with them, asking for their feedback, and the additional information needed to create a satisfactory portrait.

In about a month, the molds will be ready, and the wax work begins - and that's another post!
