THIS SCULPTURE IN THE MAKING

I wanted to convey more than just Churchill's likeness. He had such an expressive face! I approached it in the same way as I approach animals subjects, trying to convey his thoughts through his expression. He shouldered the responsibility for leading his country during difficult years but I hope I have also shown in his face the kindness of the man beneath.
