October 2013 New Works in Progress I am very pleased to announce that both of my entries into this year’s Sidney Fine Arts Show, the “Giant Octopus Table” and “Languid Cougar” received Juror’s Choice Awards. There were over 400 artists and 2000 entries submitted to this year’s show. I am already planning my submissions for next year when I plan to enter both the Sidney and Sooke Fine Art Shows during the summer and fall of 2014. We are now getting ready for the Fall Studio Tour October 26 and 27. I will have lots of completed bronzes – small and large – as well as works in progress on display, demonstrations and there will be a welcoming assortment of refreshments and snacks. If you are in the area ….(see map in Contact section). A new sculpture of a Black Tipped Reef Shark that is underway in the studio. This piece will be mounted on a sculpted piece of staghorn coral. The shark is 1.5 m long and stands 65 cm high. This piece was inspired by my young daughter who is passionate about sharks and their preservation. I expect to have this piece cast in bronze by Christmas. New photos and a refreshed web design are coming soon.
