Gabriel at 9 months, terracotta, life-size

The above is an image of the terracotta of a recent project that I am working on.  Gabriel has been a very good model and I have had plenty of time to study him.  I am his father after all.  It is amazing how many changes a baby’s face goes through during the first year while still remaining the same likeness.  His face has already changed and he has a lot more long wavy hair.  When I have time I will be carving the bust in marble: Carrara statuary.

Below are a couple of more images:
