Mother and Child
12 x 9.5 x 8
bronze on granite
This is my newest sculpture, a longhorn cow with a calf. I haven't settled on my title yet. I just got it back from the foundry this week. This is my first sculpture with multiple figures on one base. I worked on it from life at the Fort Worth Stockyards and from photos I took of the longhorns at the Fort Worth Stock Show. I spent over two years working on it before deciding that I was pleased with it and ready to cast. I work on a piece, set it aside, and then come back to it over and over to try and keep looking at it with fresh eyes. I make lots of changes as I work. One of the things I've found is that once I change one thing I wind up having to change many other things so that the sculpture continues to work as an entire piece. I'm always so excited to see each piece as it is completed and equally eager to show them to family and friends to get their opinions.
