Here is my favorite gallery people Jess and Bess. There sitting outside in the fine dining section of Dan Pfeiffer Gallery to soak allittle sun taking a smoke break before they have to go back and model motionless in the gallery, pleading for someone to take them home like foster children. They are a couple of characters that will enhance your home for they alway tell me ” Fine art does not match your sofa’’ . They came to me by way of a cypress picnic bench project. I had several large log cutoffs from the sawmill I used carving to 8’’ thick heads that seemed to wanted to come out of. I carved the heads faceless to keep the mystery of expressionless art. One can only use your imagination as to what they are feeling . As for the bodies I had several timber frame tenon cut offs I used from an 1865 log cabin I was working on. The hair is painted red and then overlaid black paint sanding the black to bring out hints of red to keep in style with the colored hair of todays women that I am always shocked to see on hip women with blue and red streaks of today’s time . I then painted a red stripe around the center of the bodies and sanded for balance with no finish on the bodies. The result is Jess and Bess my favorite gallery people. You can see more at Dan Pfeiffer Gallery on Facebook if your interested in fine art. All this and Heaven too.
