I spent a few hours this morning marking out my stone sculpture. I was told today that my stone assistant would be in on Tuesday afternoon.
Part of the day I spent trimming the left side of the cranium and the back of the cranium. I was able to see the problems of imbalance in the shape from the balcony above. The rest of the day I worked on balancing out the cranium and then moved to working on the face. I stayed at the studio today for lunch with the interpreters, the studio assistants, the staff and a few artists. After lunch I had an hour and a half of quiet time modeling the face. It was just what I needed to concentrate. Pong left at 3p.m. and spent the rest of the day with his father who is an art teacher in Changchun.
