 Hi Paul,

 Sorry to bother you. I just had to tell you that while I’m sitting at my desk trying to get work done, I keep flipping back to the pictures you sent. I feel so great about the way it’s turning out. I think your changes have really captured what I was after. When I asked you a week or two ago about the arm being parallel to the lance, I think that it was the posture of George that was reading to me as the spear/arm thing. Now, you have NAILED it!  You have really created the tension and action that I had hoped for. I had also wanted the erotic nature of the human body…and you’ve got it…with a texture that is warm and artsy.  I nice balance between impressionistic and classical.  I really love it. 

 The only problem now is that because I can’t keep my mind off those pictures, I can’t get any work done.  It’s a problem I can deal with!  

 Take care, and thanks again for sharing your incredible talent!

 Hi Paul,

 I absolutely LOVE the changes!  The sculpture is much more dynamic now!  I was excited about it before…but now I am even more excited. It took on a new life, or something.

 I know what you mean about the design process changing mid stream.  As an architect, I’ve come to meetings with clients as we were supposedly finished with design, and said that I had a whole new way to go. So the idea of changing at this point did not throw me…and I agree with you that it is much better.

 Thank you so much for your enthusiasm for the project. I feel like you’re really into it, and that makes it all the better for me!

 Hey Jeffrey,

 The other day I was working on St. George and was feeling very good about the progress I had made. I felt like I was only a short while before I would be done, but then I asked one of my colleagues to stop by and check out the anatomy on the horse, as he is a wildlife artist. He pointed out some errors I had, in-particular the positioning of St. George on the horse.

 I am kind of a stickler for accuracy, especially when it comes down to the balance of a figure and his horse. Needless to say, St. George and the horse underwent some major renovations. I feel for the better, but I figured I would let you be the judge (see attachments). 

 Of course, these kind of renovations happen all the time when you are making art. You think you are almost done, and then before you know it’s all flipped around, almost always for the better. 

 Best Wishes,

 Paul
