This heroic sculpture commissioned by the Saint Louis Zoo, was based on the study piece ‘Field Trip.’ I added another cub following along behind. Whenever the female changes dens she will occasionally pick up the weakest of the litter or the one that gets more tired and carry it.
A 1 ¼ life size sculpture of a famous bucking horse and sire. Commotion was the world champion bucking horse several times. I was lucky and got to spend some time with him at Butler’s ranch. He was the epitome of a bucking horse. He was exactly what a bronc should be, attitude and all. Even in his twenties he was full of machoism. The sculpture is placed in the town of Elk City, Oklahoma where he was from.
This is a name given to a bull in Spain that is very quick with the temper and looks for any excuse for a fight. Very aggressive and constantly on edge, he is one to watch.
Being lucky to have spent a lot of time in the fall in Northern Yukon I have looked at a lot of moose. This fountain was a commission from a good friend that has an outfitting business there. The Wind River heads out in his area.
This 1 ¼ life size sculpture of a bison cow and calf was commissioned by the Owensboro Museum in Kentucky. It’s based on the study with the same name.
A 1 ¼ life size sculpture commissioned by the Saint Louis Zoo,it depicts a northern grant gazelle with two carmine bee eaters on it, tagging along for a ride.The Zoo had originally wanted tick birds but I resisted and finally talked them into the bee eaters. I have seen this many times in the Omo valley of Ethiopia.As mentioned before I have no clue what the grant gets from the relationship though it has to be symbiotic.
A heroic piece done for the Texas Interpretive Center in Abilene, Texas. There was a casting placed at the Colorado Historical Center and the Owensboro Museum in Owensboro, Kentucky as well. It was taken from a study called Abilene Maquette.
