“Flamingos present a wonderful opportunity for a study of textures and shapes. The composition, itself, replays memories of my son queued for takeoff in his F16, hence the name “Flight Line”.”

“The challenge in designing Herd of Birds was to create a lyrical, perhaps even playful, mood while still maintaining the ostriches’ integrity.
“For a seemingly awkward animal, the ostrich is extremely graceful at full speed.”

Upon the stones
ten thousand years sooner than I,
Historians were scripting annals
of birds that run.
Shared is the desire to record
this wizardry of nature,
this ancient family of the savanna.
And, in the telling, images of
beaks agape hawking their journey
Sailing a sea of sand and wind.
Scratched in stone,
forms in bronze
Unabridged by space or subsequence,
The need remains,
Children of our,
show others their way.

“The Secretary Bird is graceful in flight but prefers to spend most of its time on the plains of Africa running after prey which are mainly snakes. It is, by nature, a solitary bird but does hunt more effectively with its life mate. One may stomp or beat its wings on the ground to disorientate the victim while the other brings home the bacon. I was fortunate on one occasion in Africa to see this over-sized hawk which is quite rare and protected by law.”
