Coloring the Bust of the Viking, Watching a Bronze Pour, and Final Touch...



I went to Northwest ArtCasting today in Bozeman Montana.. I had two things I had to do today there. The first copy of my Viking was in Bronze, and we were going to color the first copy of it today. We did .. and I love the way it turned out. "Approaching Storm" is still in clay, and I had a few things to tweak on it before they started to make the mold of it tomorrow. There was a Bronze pour while I was there and just had to video it. So I did.

Just a Short Update



Just a short update on what's going on. I need to go to the foundry Monday or Tuesday to make some needed adjustments on "Approaching Storm" before they start the mold. This is not uncommon. I just finished my new Instructional DVDs.. and I'll be putting them up for sale this coming week. I'll fill you in on that when I'm set up.

Partial Eclipse From Todd Connors Studio



I took my home made shadow box up to Todd Connor's Artist Studio to witness the partial Eclipse of the Sun. 150 miles south, in Idaho Falls, was the full Eclipse.. Still it was an amazing experience. It was amazing to feel the temperature get colder. It literally was like someone changed out the 100 watt bulb for a 25 watt bulb. Todd paints a lot of night scenes, he was highly interested in the change in lighting, as he did a quick painting sketch as we went into the dim light.

Making a Shadow Box to View The Eclipse Like Vermeer



I was chastised by a friend for not being interested in watching the Eclipse on the 21st of August 2017... Being that it's Friday and the Eclipse is on Monday, I had to find a solution to view it. So here I show you how to make a simple shadow box to view the Eclipse. Some form of using shadow boxes have been used for centuries, once Telescopes and Ground Lenses were discovered. There's a movie about Tim Jenison, a Texas Inventor and Graphic Designer, who was sure that paintings by Vermeer were painted using Shadow Box, Mirrors and Lenses. A Movie, made by Teller of Penn & Teller, follows Tim as he attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all of art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer paint such photo like paintings... The Movies title is, TIM'S VERMEER. It can be seen on Youtube for under $3.00 and purchased on ITunes as well as seen on DVD from Netflix.. It's a fascinating movie. There's a Link to it in my Video Description for this video.

Real Wealth Detailing the Clay



Took a break from dubbing my "Creating a Horse From Scratch" Instructional DVD to detail a clay I've had gathering dust for the several years.
Both figures were individual Instructional DVDs. I combined the two figures to create a single piece.

Creating a Horse from Scratch Instructional DVD Voice Over Time



I'm adding my Voice Over Commentary to my Instructional DVD on "Creating a Horse from Scratch" Disk 2. Talking while I'm sculpting is very hard to do. Especially when you're adding muscles and tendons to the Skeleton of the Horse. So I did it silent in the original video, knowing that I'd be talking my students through as a voice over commentary. Once I finish this, then it is time to convert the videos onto DVD Master Disks for Sale. Keep watching, if you're interested, for when I start selling them.
