The Terry Connor Portrait Todd Connor Collaborates The Portrait



I've been commissioned by a fellow artist, Todd Connor, to do a bronze of his dad, Terry Connor, who passed away a couple of months ago. Todd is also an artist I asked him to come to my studio today to see what needs to be done to the bust. I allowed him to sculpt a bit on the clay because he has that level of ability. It was a good day.

Back in the Studio



Finally, briefly I'm back. My left eye seems to see better. Today that is. So this evening I thought I'd get back onto the clay of Terry Connor.

Special Commission A Bust of Terry Connor



The father of an artist friend of mine, Todd Connor, asked me to create a bust of his father, Terry Connor. Well I got it started today. Though I'm happy with it.. I've got detailing to do on it yet before it's cast into bronze. It will be presented today at a Memorial for his father. I was under a little self-imposed pressure to get the clay to a recognizable stage. I didn't video any of it's creation. Just didn't have the time for all the camera set ups.

Unconquered - Still Detailing



Just more detailing on the clay of UNCONQUERED. I decided to kill the video from the ONREAL camera.. except for one short part where I use my Pasta Machine to roll out clay. Cameras quit on me at the end of the video.
