Refining the sculpture
In different areas of the sculpture I use a rake tool to even out the form. Here I am using a fine rake tool in a crosshatching pattern to make sure the calf of the little girl is nicely rounded.
I removed the mans head and have done some refining. Also I have been smoothing and refining the folds in his shirt.
I removed the womans head to further refine her features, though she is not as far along as the man.
A view of the sculpture. I am working on areas all over the sculpture tweaking and tighening.
Spring brings tadpoles - these are well developed by are not out of their bubble nest yet...

Saturday Don and I were invited to fellow sculptor Karen Terhune's 50th birthday party - it was lots of fun but I forgot the camera, darn!
My sister and I celebrated our birthday the next day - we're 47 - but the batteries on my camera decided to give up the ghost so I got no pics of the party - another darn!
