I am a huge fan of Rich Odell’s work, and am no less impressed with his most recent piece.
I know how a two dimensional photo tends to flatten a piece whether it is a flat or full round figure. When I received my copy of Rich’s “Amy Johnson” last week, I was blown away by the dimension he was able to sculpt into this “flat” figure. I only wish I had the skill to paint it for all it is worth. But I know people who can and look forward to seeing what they can do with this piece. Perhaps several of you with great skill will paint one and send me a digital photo and we can post them as inspiration for the rest of us.
I also urge you to check out Rich’s new and improved website. He has made it convenient for you to order pieces sculpted by him online through Paypal. Also check out the beautiful piece he is currently working on—”Dorothy” in the Wizard of Oz.
