Vanilla Queen

This is my take off of the “Little Mermaid” statue in Denmark-  the soft understated sensuality of a young female nude.  I found my model for this sculpture, dancing at a club late one night.  The title was taken from an old Golden Earring song about an exotic dancer, so I thought it fit.

I cast this sculpture in resin, painted it with liquid copper, and sprayed it with a corrosive material for the patina finish.

Presently, she sits in front of my house surrounded by some beautiful azaleas.
