How to paint a bronze statue from scratch
A new bronze sculpture is in the works for an art park in Washington state.
The sculpture is called “Porter’s Plunge,” and it’s part of a program called “The Art of Plunging.”
The sculpture depicts the late John Porter, who lived in Washington and served as governor from 1965 to 1970.
The program aims to help artists create new works of art, including a bronze sculpture of Porter.
Porter was a state senator who was a member of the United States Congress from Washington and a Democrat.
He is best known for his opposition to the Vietnam War, and his political activism included a failed bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in 1972.
Peters sculpture is part of the Art of Sliding Walls program.
“I had the opportunity to design a piece of art and have it on display in the Capitol building,” said artist Sarah Sauer.
“I just thought, what can I do with this piece that was designed in a way that really shows the depth of my connection to Washington?”
She added that she wanted to use a combination of “artistic elements and elements that reflect the history of the state, that show the diversity of our state.”
“I wanted to bring it to the Capitol, because I was going to use the same art gallery and be able to showcase it as an exhibit,” Sauer said.
The bronze sculpture was inspired by a photograph of Porter, which was taken in 1964.
Porters father, the late Frederick Porter, served as a state representative for more than 25 years.
The photo was posted on the front of the sculpture, and it shows Porter standing on the Capitol steps, holding up a sign reading, “Washington State.”
“There are so many stories to tell, but one of them is, when the great and good go out, when you lose hope and you look down and see what you’ve lost, and you just feel like you’ve just lost the great things, that’s a great feeling,” Porter said in a recent interview.
“This piece will reflect the same spirit of hope and pride and that’s what makes Washington great,” said Sauer, who is from North Dakota.
The artist has also been working with the Washington State Art Commission on the design of the new sculpture.
Ports sculpture will be the first to be installed in the new Art of Waterpark at the Waterfront Art Center.
It will feature the likeness of Porter’s mother and father.
“The sculpture will stand on the water as a symbol of hope,” said Art Commission Chairman Mike Egan.
“And it will be able, hopefully, to inspire a sense of optimism in people and encourage them to come out and experience the water in new ways.”
