Now, Sherry's story.
When I first began I thought she was angry at me for looking at her, or she didn't want me there, or hated men . . . something like that. I became extremely self-conscious and anxious. But when she came out of her pose, she was polite and cheerful. A sign of a good model! She captured a state of mind as she went into the pose, becoming a new person experiencing something profound. Capturing this emotional side was quite intriguing. One minute she was angry, the next sad, regretful, then consumed, resigned, peaceful. Repeat. This slippery slope of change found its way into the sculpture without me realizing it. You can imagine that I look forward to creating the painting from one of these images, all offering a different level of emotion really.
Thank you Sherry for an amazing energy. My creation is for you.
