Now finished with their bases and are sitting in the clients meditiation room. Hope I haven’t bored to many members with this project but it has been an interesting commission. I took photos during this work and there were spots on them, the clients said they were the spirits inspecting and approving of the progress. (1 Photo shows the spirits????) yeah as if. Although it was fun I am glad it is over, never had so many near accidents or things go wrong, must have been the cursing upsetting the Saints. My white coat is a bit tight.

I have just completed a smaller set of them to enter into a Veterans craft competition in August. Will post them if anyone wants to see them.

I think these are just wonderful Bob. I like that you kept the old style. I am especially taken with Michael (not because of the name) because of the flow of the design and the colors. I’m sure your client must be very happy with this outstanding work.

fantastic job ..
Don’t you find it interesting that the Orb is only seen in one of your photos? Perhaps an “approval” of your creations.

Thank you for the heads up Bob. Stunning work and I would agree that the spirits visited you. I agree with Mike, awesome design for Michael. Interesting change from the hot colors to the more cool blue tones. The giant wingspan is breathtaking. I would think that would have been a challenge in proportion and balance.
