Hi John,

Your sculpture is superb - thanks so much for sharing!

I inserted the image into your post for you. Next time if you follow the instructions described here: then the image will appear within your post instead of as an attachment underneath.

You can also edit your previous posts to include images by clicking "Options" in the upper right corner of your discussion, and then click "Edit discussion", then follow the instructions in the link above to add the image into your post. Click "Save" when you are done and the changes will take effect.

Hope this helps! :)

Holy Moses that is good!!!

Thank you everyone!
Thaneeya- thank you, I'll try uploading it right next time. The only issue is that I only have my iPhone at the moment to upload images of my art
Excited about learning from you all.
Louk- I'm not sure, I've been researching online lots of methods but right now I haven't tried any applications. I actually medium jump quite a bit because I get easily bored and I notice that most things I learn are transposable to new art efforts. While researching I began studying about the lost wax process which in turn put me into beginning to make a home foundry. I had a large plumbing business and in turn have lots of copper and brass in a giant shop. The plan is to at some point to melt it down for sculptures. :)
Why? I always like to ask - why not? Lol
The cypress boards were from a large lake house we worked on that the owner had left over and gave me a trailer load of. I began making a breakfast table with it and in the middle of it was commissioned to do a piece with whatever medium I wanted. I took the tabletop and cut it in half. The piece I used was 4'x3' and 2" thick
I took a dremmel and said wonder if I could carve a figure into this lol
That's the picture on my profile
