Richard MacDonald - Flight in Attitude

Here is the second of two Richard MacDonald sculptures I recently purchased.  This is a bronze depicting a graceful ballerina.  After admiring his work for over 20 years, I was so thrilled to add a piece to my collection.  This picture really doesn't do the piece justice.  The patina is exceptional - I've added a close-up picture to show the detail (click for larger image).

Richard MacDonald - Angelic Crystal

I've been really busy lately and have not had time to update my blog, but that doesn't mean I have not been buying more art!  I first saw Richard MacDonald's sculptures over 20 years ago in Las Vegas and I was immediately struck by them.  They have great proportion, balance, and grace.  His mastery of anatomy is incredible.  I always dreamed of owning one and now I have two!  This is a bust of a dancer done in "marble dust".  I found out that Richard imported some marble from Italy to do some sculptures, and used the remaining marble fragments to make these busts.  It's very lovely and graceful, and I'm thrilled to add it to my collection (click for larger image).
