I don’t often do this. Normally I carve something from start to finish in one go. This sculpture that was started a few months ago has been bothering me for some time.Something was unsatisfactory about it. It feels good to have another go at it. I think it was all looking too heavy; too lumpen. The trouble is that the stone is not strong and I may well be pushing it beyond what it can take. If it falls to bits however I shall have to be philosophical; it cannot stay as it is and be loosed on the world. I also sprayed up the steel bases. Very badly however, one has dribbles. I shall rub it down again and put another layer on tomorrow.
