Four years ago, I sculpted a bust under a title "Self-Acceptance." I decided to try the same theme in full figure this time. Looking at the photos of my old and new work, I feel I've come a long way in my journey as an artist. I stand yet far from self-acceptance in another journey as a human, but I feel I will reach the goal someday. May you get there as well!
I shall share below the text that I wrote to accompany my first sculpture:
I have witnessed this woman’s expression of contentment in hospice patients. Approaching the end of life, humans learn to accept the way we are. Could we reach this state when we are still full of life, even if we are conscious of the unacceptable in ourselves? My answer is yes.

Oh Yoko, this is so moving. Such emotion in every aspect of this figure. Your art is growing more than you even appreciate.

Do you recognize the model? I used your face on my body for this piece. Ever since I started to study George Jeanclos techniques, I have happily noticed changes in my work. Thank you Ann.

I'm not good at making the portrait sculpture resemble to the model, but I think I captured the essence. Is Alan your nephew in San Francisco? I feel flattered if you show it to him.
