#8 Remarque: "Roosting Rooster Fragment I"

When our studio and headquarters of 20 years was relocated from Fort Collins, Colorado to Lander, Wyoming we bought property on the Popo Agie River (a tributary of the Wind River) and built a log house and studio near the foundry that casts my work.

Roosting Rooster was created for the new kitchen with our enormous Rhode Island Red rooster we called Old Red used as a model. He bit the dust a few weeks after the piece was completed when a fox raided the chicken coop.   His stunningly beautiful tail feathers are in my extensive feather collection.
