I had done my first belly cast only a week before
starting this. My first model had been 8 months pregnant and I wished I had met her
earlier. The following day, I was talking to a friend, who was excited to tell me
that her daughter, Kelly,
had just announced she was pregnant. Ive known their family for almost 2 decades and
watched Kelly grew into a beautiful woman. What perfect timing, I thought! I asked if
Kelly might be interested in posing for a full series of monthly casts and, ironically,
Kelly had just seen a show on Oprah featuring belly casts and had called her
mom to ask for my number.
This is the only set of castings that
Ive ever had to wait for. As the days went by, we waited and watched
the miracle of life as it progressed. Because of that, it took a full year to
complete this sculpture and I was very thankful to share that experience.
