Progress on the Buffalo Commission

It seems that spring is trying to come early...
 This was the last image that I posted - the block when it first came to the studio on Wednesday, February 15.
 This is that same view today.
 This is the block as seen from the other side when it came in...
 ... and this is how the left side looks today.
 On rainy days, I worked inside on a 1/2 scale clay model of the head.
 It's not finished, but I'm making great progress on finding improvements to make over the small 1/8 scale plaster model.
... and I'll finish today's post with a wildlife picture that I snapped while working on the clay head.  To the lower right of the marble column is a rare, white turkey.
