On Saturday, I had the great pleasure of spending a day with Jennifer Scott in her beautiful mountain home in Evergreen, Colorado.
The first part of our visit was spent with the animals. This Jenn's "little" girl, Mookie...so little...
and her horses, Rocky, Myr and Ivy.
Then we headed inside and down to the basement, which doubles as Jenn's studio. The painting station caught my eye first.
These are going to be stunners.
Everywhere I looked...
Even the bathroom was filled with horses!
Jenn is a sculptor as well as a painter, so a lot of the horses were unfinished resins...
However, there were a few stunning finished pieces in the mix.
There were also bits and pieces of clay sculptures. This is what's left of Rajah after the molding process...and this is the new Breyer stablemate, Valegro, with the armature upon which he began life.
We drifted into the casting room, where Jenn showed me the various types of molds.
Then we made a Rajah. This was a really fascinating process, which will be covered in detail in a future post.
After Rajah was done, we headed back upstairs to do a little sculpting. Jenn started a bust...
and I attempted to make a medallion.
I could have sat in Jenn's kitchen and talked and pushed clay forever, but eventually, it was time to go home. Happily, I did not leave empty handed. Oops! That's another unpainted resin!
This was truly a wonderful day. Thanks so much for having me, Jenn. Can we do it again soon? Pretty please?
