Man with Heavy Ball

The straight figure again, this time a 1/2 life size portrait of my brother-in-law when he was 49 years old.  He was quite a challenge, as you can see he is built like an artist’s anatomy book. The sculpture was started in Kansas, travelled to Utah with some damage, was fixed and fiddled with, then I pulled a silicon mold in the living room of E & I’s small rental place, and finally last year had a bronze rough-cast at the foundry and I chased and welded it out in my studio. I brought him to the foundry with E-Ball for sandblast, patina, and basing as well (things I do at the studio now).
