'Nessie', Colorado Yule Marble Sculpture by Martin Cooney

~~~

For this the second carving of my ‘Autumn of 14′ Collection of Colorado Yule Marble Sculpture,  I changed tack from the technique I utilized with Ice Boat, whereby I cut away the damaged and the deteriorated to get at the pure white vein that lay beneath.    This time around,   by the time I began the carving process,   I had actually been staring at this little devil for quite some considerable time.    I can’t count the number of times I would walk past this  mangled piece of marble and catch a flash of her staring defiantly back.     And best of all there really wasn’t much in the way of roughing out this time around,   just straight in to the good stuff…  fleshing out the form.    Nessie takes her place among a growing family of reptilian-like creatures that include The Maiden Collection’s Terrible Lizard and Troy, Guin and Son, along with The 1314 Winter Collection’s Birth of a Guin.
