Under the Big Top (a lesson learned)

Here's a little commission I enjoyed making last month. It was for a fundraiser auction for Camellia Waldorf School in Sacramento. Their yearly auction was to be called "Camellia Palooza -Under the Big Top."
I really enjoyed making it, and sort of went beyond what they asked for. It triggered my desire to do a vintage circus series of sculptures.
Here's a photo of the final piece, along with my little concept sketch.



One disappointing note, although they paid me my deposit on time, I am STILL waiting for final payment, even though I shipped it to them over one month ago! Lesson learned. On commission pieces, ask for 50% down, send photo of finished piece, wait for final payment to arrive, THEN ship it out. I have no doubt that these folks will pay me, but it's annoying, and bad on me for not having proper written policies.

The silhouette on the yellow is perfect for showing him under the spot light. Really nice work!
