Sculpture Gallery
The Matriarch

Capturing the nature of this model " lines
and all" as Lois, the model advised, was not so
much about achieving the accuracy of her
image, but her outlook on life.

An artist herself, Lois offered valuable critiques
and suggestions.  She was pleased with the
result, so I am also.  

We had a lot of fun creating this piece together.  

This sculpture won First Place at the 2008
Quincy ArtsFest Members Show.
