Painting My Kong Bust



I thought I'd share a couple pictures of my kitchen table work area. Last week I started painting an original Kong bust I sculpted. I got the mouth painted and began dry brushing the fur areas. Our basement renovation had just been completed and I look forward to moving back downstairs and setting up my studio.

No sooner had I started to move things back downstairs then we got the Nor'easter warning about 3 - 5 foot higher tides and a 7 foot storm surge. Soooooo back upstairs everything came!!

Then came the warning that cars in our area that had suffered beach erosion from the hurricane should be moved to higher ground. I had just, just got my new car that Thursday! Talk about good timing! So we got a hotel room to ride out the high tide(s) well north of here. And of course nothing happened here - but after Sandy I was taking no chances.



Here's a larger photo of Kong. He reminds me of a hillbilly without his front choppers added. I'll update with new photos as work progress.

    After Sandy, it's a good idea not to take any chances!
