This shot shows the hall looking towards the front door on Broad St. with my work on both sides. The camera shots on the wall show the original masterpieces from the VMFA and Hollywood Cemetery that are the inspiration for each piece. Last Sat. was the day to take our entries to Art6. I loaded up my car in the morning and got there at noon. As I was unloading my work in the gallery Helene talked about putting my smaller pieces in the hall. That meant a bigger showing for me so I drove home and loaded my car again. I also brought 4 landscapes and some things I made up from my imagination. They don’t all fit the theme but it’s ok because they show continuity.

Scarf Dancer by Agathon Leonard

I think this sculpture looks like Shelby

This sculpture is in the VMFA. It’s guilded. My finished pastel drawing can be seen on my web site.

 
I draw tight because of my Academic background. But when I see a figure this beautiful, I don’t want to mess it up by changing it.  If I can’t get the face right or the hands, my drawing bugs me. And I like my drawings better than my photos, because I can make it look like I had a live model.
