 I sculpted this figure from a model using a oil base clay a few years back. My husband, who is a sculptor just cast this for me using the bronze cold cast process. It was nice seeing it break free from it's plaster mold.

Down at the Jamestown D.E.M.

This painting was done at the Department of Enviromental Management on Jamestown Island. It's not as scary as the name states. It is a beautiful spot overlooking where the Narragansett Bay and the ocean meet. Right across in Newport, sits a large Victorian mansion where  Jackie and John Kennedy had their reception. It is her childhood home called Hammersmith Farm.
The painting is one of the boats owned by the D.E.M. It is an oil measuring 6"x 6".

Orange II
