Here are some photos of a recent sculpture.  The title is Venus Pluvia.  That is latin for Venus of the Rain.  Venus exiting from her bath covers herself from the rain.  This is the terracotta model that I have mounted on a base of pietra leccese: a sand stone from the Puglia region of Italy.  I will soon be starting work on the bronze version.  Let me know if you would be interested in one of the limited edition.

    1. Thank you Mom!

  2. You have a wonderful grasp of form. Are you inspired by classical sculpture? Or is realism simply a preference?

    1. Thank you Jennifer. I am equally inspired by nature and classical sculpture. Although almost all of my painted work in done from life, this piece was created from my imagination.
