Well, its FINALLY here. After working on this for what feels like an eternity, I can finally say that my in-the-round sculpture is finished and that I am very happy with how it turned out. Those of you who had class with me were able to witness the long process I went through to get it to where it is now, but just for how long of a process it was I ended up not documenting the process like I should have. After discussing what I wanted with an Ace worker, I chose a clear lacquer that wasn't too thick, would protect my piece, and give it the honey color I wanted. I chose to do people for this piece because I haven't done a lot of work with figures, and I wanted to challenge myself with this piece and boy did I ever. I was also inspired by the work of Auguste Rodin, one of my favorite artists. Along the way, I began to derive my own meanings from this piece and for doing this piece. I also learned a lot about myself as well, like even though I am a patient person with my work, working with wood (and in-the-rounds in particular) may require a little more patience than I am currently blessed with. However, I will not let this deter me and I will continue challenge myself.
