I'm living in New Mexico where I sculpt and paint. After a long absence from art, I am now creating smaller bronze figures. This blog is mainly devoted to that work.

October Elk Fight

Here is my latest animal art work, the first elk of a 2 elk rutting fight. This elk is the lower elk, probably being defeated my the upper elk. A little more to work on. It will join my other American animals. The entire 2 elk sculpture will be about 44" long, and between 15 and 20 inches high. (Presently this figure is 12" X 26"). I do not know the exact final dimensions because there is still the base, which will be a lot of tree trunks, leaves, and brambles, and also a marble base which will raise it up some as well. Right now I am out of clay so I have to wait a bit until I can get started again. I will need to do the second deer and the base. I have a bear armature started, so that is to be my next animal. I must still finish bits of the bison and the horse, as well as the rider for the horse. After the bear, I think I will sculpt about 5 human sculptures including the rider.
