What a wonderful creative week at SNG Studio!We painted, weaved and I poured orders and took a break from sculpting. Mary finished her study of the Australian Splendid Fairy Wren. You can see her work on her blog here: https://marycacciapaglia.wpcomstaging.com/2022/06/17/splendid-fairywren I finished a painting I started last week of one of the most amazing and prolific builders of free flight model airplanes on the planet Earth. Vance Gilbert.  https://vancegilbert.com/Vance net size.jpg


Vance is an inspiration to us all in the Flying Aces Club.  http://flyingacesclub.com/I’m planning another painting next week as a series of paintings related to this wonderful silent and graceful hobby.

Our local group for en plein air painting is going to Oxnard Heritage Square today. They have a very interesting water tower that I am intrigued by. 
  I have an event in Arizona in October for a free flight model flying in a huge 600 acre sod field. So I’m building several planes in the background of the day’s work to be ready for the event.http://www.westernfac.com/

The bare bounds of a fuselage for a Heinkel 112. A WW2 German fighter plane.I am also working on this Fokker DVIII from the WW1 era. This is a radio-controlled plane to add to my fleet.I’m trying to decide what’s next for a new mask and I hope to do something new, soon. Feedback from the fan base has been low and I can only figure this lack of enthusiasm is a result of out-of-sight gas prices and inflation caused by just plain old corporate greed, as I see it. I’m doing my best to keep my prices down as I tighten my belt. Thank goodness for the orders that come in.
I just cast two more Talosians and a Salt Vampire. There’s a joke in there somewhere or maybe a song.LOL

Here they are fresh out of the mold un-trimmed.
I was asked to do more interviews for podcasts, streaming shows, and books. There’s been a lot of this lately. In fact, I had a live show interview yesterday with the Academy of Model Aeronautics with Jay Smith. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yiOTkc44VA&t=1578sNext week I have more. Allan Holzman, a film director I worked with in 1982 on the movie Forbidden World https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083959/reference/, is coming to our studio to interview me on his show. I did the creature work on this film. I headed the department. big creature.jpg
