It was a year ago when I created this Great Horned Owl. Thankfully, as with all my sculptures, they end up in the care of nature lovers from around the world. The tough part I grapple with, is each one takes a part of me with them.

<p>Getting supplies to the shop in a Canadian winter can be challenging at the best of times😥. Owning a 1954 Series 1 Land Rover truck is a must. And no, that isn’t beer loaded in the box😜🍻.                                              <br/>

<p>I know, I know, it’s only February. Still I can’t wait for spring, so I can get back to Algonquin Provincial Park to see one of these majestic beasts.                                               <br/>

<p>As a full-time artist, at times you feel like you’re trying to pull that elusive “rabbit out of the hat” to make a living. Today I’ve done just that….my work here is done😜                                             <br/>

<p>I believe anyone can do sculpture. The trick to doing it well is to achieve the illusion of movement in an inanimate object. Here in lies the challenge….sigh, I should have stuck with LEGO, life would be a breeze 😏.<br/>

There’s a lot of cool projects I’m biting at the bit to get into this year. Right now I’m focusing on a solo exhibition @algonquinartcentre this summer. Stay tuned for more on that😊.
