Works in Progress

Breakfast with Grandma

My Grandma, Anna, had chickens as did most families of that time.  I never got to see her feed her chickens, but have photos.  This woman was amazing; she had eight children, was a hard worker, a great baker and one tough cookie!!!  I miss her dearly.


This piece is currently at the Foundry, Bronze Services in Loveland, Colorado and will be ready at the end of August.

To Have and to Hold

This piece is of one of my daughters-in-law, her first son and second baby-to-be.  She has done motherhood beautifully.  She and my son now have three amazing children.  


This sculpture captured a day when my first grandson was being taken to the museum.  He loves his "HESS" trucks from his Great G'ma "Dodo".


"To Have and to Hold" - She is "Holding" one and ready to "Have" another.


This piece is 11.5" tall 4" wide and 5"deep

Anna

This is a rendition of what I believe Anna in the Bible looked like. 


Scripture say in Luke 2:36-38 that "There was a prophet, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher.  She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage, and then was a widow until she was eighty-four.  She never left the temple but worshipped night and day, fasting and praying."


This piece is 9" tall x 6" wide x 7" deep.

Joy

This sculpture is more-or-less as self-portrait, but can certainly be anyone who has gone through a trial of any kind.  This past year, I have battled (and won) cancer.  I had a chicken breast sized sarcoma in my leg and following 25 radiation treatments and surgery, I am cancer free! God is good.


I will do follow-up MRIs and CTs for the next five years, but right now there is no cancer in my body!!!


This piece represents someone a bit off balance, but still moving forward.  She has to focus going ahead.  The logs she is walking on form an arrow, kind of pointing her straight ahead.  


She is approximately 21" tall and 9" wide.  The "logs" are 11.5" long.
