This week in the shop!
I have been asked to make another sculptor from my Light of War series, for a fellow artist and good friend Anette Lusher. I 16 hours n and almost finished with the cleaning! The top and bottom have been welded on. Next week I will finish with the cleaning and will clear coat so that the lights can be installed! I am hoping to have this finished by November 1st.

[I’ll definitely take photos and post them, once your creation is here.] You ROCK! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and from Jim as well, for doing this for us. I know that whoever will come into our house will be speechless. I am very much honored to call you my friend.
