A Busy March

Colonel Goodnight's Bison, Old Sikes
Bronze on Granite
8.5 x 6 x 7.5
Edition of 50

   March is going to be a very busy month. I have three shows, beginning March 2nd, I will be participating in the Texas Stampede at the Insight Gallery in Fredericksburg. I am really looking forward to this show as it will be my first year to participate in this event.  Many great artists from across the state will be in this show.  Next I will be participating in Art Reach at Christ Chapel for the fourth time on March 13th. This is a really nice local show. Finally, near the end of the month, starting on March 24th, I will be in a two man show with my very good friend and truly great artist Sheri Jones at the Meadows Gallery at the Southwestern Adventist University. I'm really looking forward to seeing Sheri's paintings. I especially admire the texture and beautiful colors in her work. You can check out her work at
   The sculpture above is one of the pieces from that show. This sculpture is inspired by Col. Charles Goodnight who in addition to being instrumental in the cattle industry was important in preserving the American bison from extinction. This sculpture represents Old Sikes,a sire of Colonel Goodnight's bison herd.


  1. Nice sculpture! I like your information about the inspiration that you got from Col. Goodnight.

    You are going to be busy this month, too, getting ready for all those shows!! It is just wonderful for you! Well deserved!

  2. Love your sculptures and this one is especially good. You really captured the stance of this bison.

  3. Beautiful sculpture! You are so gifted Doug. Thanks for the mention of the show and kind words. I am looking forward to it.
