715 "Golden Promise"








"Golden Promise"
10"H 10"W 10"D
Edition 50


The Golden Retriever is a large gun dog known for an outstanding 
ability to retrieve downed waterfowl and upland game birds. 
The beautiful canine is one of the most popular breeds in America 
due to their friendly and gentle temperament.

While the good-natured dog is respected by hunters in the field, 
they make an excellent family pet.

#714 "Anasazi Muse"












"Anasazi Muse"
21"H 12"W 8"D

      The macaw was sacred to the Anasazi Indians.  According to legend, they 
      believed the macaw took the sun south to its winter home and returned it
       in the spring. Trading with Mexican tribes supplied macaws to the Anasazi
     and their brilliant feathers were sacred objects. Today, the Pueblo 
     people, descendants of the Anasazi use the birds in their rituals.

      I know these beautiful birds well. Years ago I had a beloved pet macaw 
        and became acquainted with its behavior, gestures, and incredible beauty.  
      Thanks to a friend’s macaw, I was recently able to work from life for this 
              sculpture, seeking to present a quiet and uncomplicated 
statement of a magnificent bird.

708 "Bronc"



"Bronc"
 22"H 20"W 8"D

"Bronc"

I grew up in Oklahoma and my Father loved to rodeo when I was  little kid.  
His event was calf roping and I would tag along and enjoy the action.

Saddle Bronc riding was my favorite rodeo event because it seemed 
to depict ranch life in an authentic way.  My new sculpture, “Bronc” 
is a high relief fragment that can be presented as a mantelpiece.  
The sculpture depicts an old time cowboy attempting to break a rank horse.

707 "Scent of Water"



"Scent Of Water"
14"H 38"L 7"D







Years ago I read a story by Louis L’Amour, Will James, or Walter Farley – I don’t 
remember who – about cattle on the long drives from Texas to Kansas.  The critters 
could actually smell water up ahead on the wind along the hot dusty trails.

It remained in my memory and as I created “Scent of Water”, 
I attempted to engage the viewer in this tale of the old west

#706 "Untamed"









"Untamed"
37"H 39"W 18"D

The idea for “Untamed” happened in Wyoming while antelope hunting in the 
high sage along the eastern slope of the Wind River Mountain Range.  As we 
crawled over a rise we knew something was happening by the dust cloud ahead.

Less than 200 yards away two stallions were fighting among a herd of 
wild horses.  The hooves, the mane, and the dust was flying as we 
watched the wild, unbridled spectacle.  My sculpture was before me.

#705 The Boss


"The Boss"

11"H 15"W 7"D


My new sculpture, "The Boss" depicts the distinctive presence of a Brahma Bull. 
Brahma cattle originated in India where they are considered sacred and were 
brought to the United States in the late 1800s.  Also referred to as Brahman, 
the breed is tolerant to heat and insects due its thick skin but also does well 
in cold climates.  Interestingly, Brahma cattle, like the camel, stores food 
and water in the hump on its back.

While creating "The Boss", I attempted to show the tension of skin stretched 
over the internal anatomy while retaining overall clarity and simplicity.  
This powerful animal was a delight to work with . . . the sentiment 
and spirit were derived from the subject!
