Annie Stone - WIP

Not many words today, just pictures. (Click to enlarge) The stone I have been working on for roughly 2 weeks (on and off).  Starting with the inspiration shot:

71925907

Enlarged this picture onto twenty 8 1/2 x 11" sheets of paper via Blockposters.com.  (It's free)

That's a yard stick leaning on it above.

A grave that I have been to many times, I felt it proper that her true name finally be "carved in stone", not just the Diamond Bessie name she was known as.  Her story can be found here.

I plan on the stone standing about 5.5 to 6 feet tall - it is about 4' now without a base.  I will update with pictures as I obsess progress.
