Wild And Free Detail
Sculpture - Bronze
This is a detail of the previous image. One of my earliest bronzes, "Wild and Free" represents many teenage years and miles of searching the creek banks for tracks of wild animals who had come to drink during the night. My father helped me cast these tracks as a frame for my relief landscape featuring the rugged cliffs and mountains, the constellations, cottonwoods and chokecherry bushes of my Wyoming home. In this landscape a mule deer doe nuzzles her fawn while mallard ducks fly overhead, a family of mountain lions cuddles in their cave, coyotes howl, a raccoon and a skunk forage along the stream. See detail, following. Unfortunately, this original bronze was stollen from my family's cabin when I was off at college and someone broke in. Many years later some local ranch girls who were floating the river with their father found it beneath a bridge, where unusual drought conditions had exposed more of the river bottom than ever before. They called the police, who in turn notified me. Though somewhat water-worn, it was reparable, so now for the first time in decades I am able to offer this sculpture to the public.
