Out on a Limb

Worked hard on this one for the last couple of days, trying to have it finished to deliver to a jury tomorrow. Many layers of glazes, several sandings, more glazing, a couple of layers of paint for vibrancy and now it's nearly finished (my back is killing me after 12 hours straight working on this piece). The work has a lot more red in it than appears in the photo. I hope to give it a clear top coat of gel medium - hope it isn't sticky when I deliver it! Wish me luck.
Here's the preliminary sketch.
