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.

OnReal Spy Camera 1080P. The sound isn't great at all but the video is superb.. Today I tried it out with my two Canon cameras to see if it will work.. It's going to take some work to figure out the best way to use it. I Got my OnReal on Amazon for about $79...

Update on My Vision

I went to an Opthamologist for an eye exam today... I have problems that could get better with proper care.. or it may not get better... They made an appointment with a Retna Specialist later this month. The doctor said it wasn't an emergency, but I need to get it taken care of.
