Concrete Sculpture Day 4

And so she starts to take shape.

She is obviously from the land of very large starfish.

Today was spent building up the form with one walnut sized chunk of concrete at a time. There are other very large things to follow, wink, wink. I had hoped to complete the torso area today, it being Dolly Parton’s birthday, but I didn’t make it that far. I had one very discouraging moment when an hour’s worth of work fell off in a slab. But all in all it was a good day and very satisfying to see things begin to take shape. There remains a lot of work yet to do and I am very anxious that the face turn out at least somewhat realistic. Cross your fingers and toes and your fins for me, please and thanks.

A side of snail.
