I had the most perfect end to 2014, taking the horses to the beach for a glorious ride. I then partied into 2015 before my body decided to literally throw a massive hissy fit and since January 1st I have been poorly ever since! I am slowly recovering from a flu-like illness and I nearly had to pay a trip to hospital as my asthma took a turn for the worse, but perseverance means it is now slowly recovering... Although I managed to pull a muscle in my ribs so I cannot cough properly! So I am not out of the woods yet...
I have a couple of photos of progress from in the studio so I will share them here. It is so nice because I haven't been in the studio properly in a while (the cold weather doesn't help!).
First of all is this Peter Stone ISH model horse that I have had in my studio for a good couple of years now. He is also a commission and he has taken me SO long because I had initial problems with the neck area which meant I just lost inspiration, as well as university and other commissions got in the way. The good news is that he is now 'finished' apart from details. I can't wait to get final photos up and he will be my first completed model horse of 2015 (and in a good few months!)
I also have this CollectA model horse that in this photo is awaiting white markings... She now has them and she has a black foal I need to get finished too, so I can have them paired as a set! I was never keen on this particular model from the CollectA range but after changing the colour, my mind has changed.
This Persia resin is also being worked on... The mane has been removed and I need to get rid of the tail but there is a huge wire in the way that I need to cut through as well! I am really looking forward to spending time on this model.
I also have some updates about the sculpture I am working on, but I will save that for another post...
