Personal Critic

Well, lest I get too comfortable or confident there is always
a critic to sit atop my artwork and offer his personal opinion.
LOL!  This is an old piece in alabaster that sits in my front yard. It's getting pretty sugary now. I can't believe all the hours I spent wet sanding a perfectly smooth shine on this at one time.
This is titled "If wishes were horses..."   I don't know the name of the critic.

That's a terrific piece! I think the squirrel loves it!! It wants to live on it!!

Do you have an image of this—sans squirrel? From what I can see: the hands looks intense.

Hi Caio, you are a "glass half full" kind of guy! Thanks!

Stan, LOL! True enough!

Manon, always nice to see your lovely face. Thanks, everyone should be happy to have a sguirl living on their head I guess. LOL!

David, I do have a photo of the sulpture sans squirl but it is in it's present condition. I should try to find an original photo all nice and polished to perfection. Alabaster doesn't hold up well outdoors as marble or granite would. However it is a little easier to carve. I will post it.
