Continuance of Action
When I created, “Continuance of Action,” I wanted to create something that showcased the power, and the necessity, of persistence. Persistence is a many-faceted word that touches on everything from attaining our goals to perseverance in the face of unrelenting hardship. Regardless of the reason this Shire horse bears this burden, it is still his to bear. He puts his head down and he grinds, because the only way is forward.$12500
Gratitude was inspired by the symbiotic harmony of the woman with the world that sustains her and the gratitude she has towards the bison which will provide sustenance for her and her family. Gratitude takes many forms, but whatever form it takes, at its core is respect.
I combined the bronze figures in this piece with wenge and walnut burl. I wanted to break away from traditional depictions of a scene like this, and have the deer cresting a hill. The Huntress stands below, naked except for her bow, on lower ground, vulnerable and powerful. I shaped this display to feel like a museum piece, to subconsciously convey a familiarity to things of value and importance.
A Bird in the Hand
A truth I have realized in my life is that wisdom comes with age and experience. This piece, “A Bird in the Hand,” represents a part of my growth as an artist. Whatever your chosen passion may be, you may start down your path with confidence, but encounter failures as you struggle to define your success. Those failures form the outlines of our successes, even though we may be blind to that fact as the answer sits in our hands.$3500
