What Happened to June!

Well it was as busy as ever!

"The Sage", a Guenon monkey, (7 1/2"H, 4"L, 4"W)

 and "Speedmaster", a cheetah, (12"H, 13"L, 8 1/2"W) are in the Art of the Animal Kingdom XV in Bennington, VT until Aug 18th.
Vic and I took a short trip to Chicago visiting family. A trip to the Brookfield Zoo added even more wonderful reference material. I was quite taken by a wonderful exhibit of the southwest featuring roadrunners, Gambols quail and Montezuma quail.

A new exhibit featuring north American mamals had recently opened, including a small herd of bison.
But.... my favorite animal at the zoo was this one
From Chicago I flew to Denver for the book signing and events at Saks gallery in Cherry Creek, Denver. I am pleased to be one of 97 artists featured in the book "Sculpture of the Rockies".  My kiwi sculpture, "Nosing Around" is in the book, but "Free Spirit", giraffe (10"H,8"L,5"W) represented my work at the gallery for the show and signing.
 It was a treat to meet the other artists and all the wonderful people who came to see our work.
"Take a Stick of Bamboo"

While in Colorado I picked up the finished pandas that where the quick sculpt at SEWE in Charleston, SC in February. I think they are just charming!
Vic and I spent a wonderful anniversary in the Denver area and then flew back to PA. After a few short days of packing the truck and last minute organization, my trusty travel companion, Magic the Newfy, and I hopped in the truck and made the trip back to Loveland, CO. Here we will be for a busy summer!
