In my mind's eye, this is the first step towards a sculpture on the same theme: the heads of mother and child nestled together. For that step, if it ever materialises, there will be no need for my sitter to stay still…well, at least not for more than two seconds. As a sculptor, I can work from a glance and a measurement at a time. The only thing is - it takes time.
Thank you Jillian and Jaylah, hope you enjoy your portrait.
