American Lions

Edition 35                        15″H X 42″W X 10″D                     $7,800

“A number of years ago, I was fortunate to have been able to raise a mountain lion.  It was a priceless time of study and learning giving me the rare opportunity to truly know and love this animal in all its moods.  And, whether a cat is wild or domesticated, his favorite time of day is when he is enjoying a nap in the sun.”

Two cats, gated by laziness
Supple muscles at rest
Fearless repose, innocuous from interlopers
Breathing hosannas to the Spirits.

Released from sleep, their daily game begins
Curvate shapes, long tails tucked low
Golden contours slink through waving grass
Powerful sinew leap atop polished cupolas
Their silent prowess rewarded with sated appetite.

Solicitous play, amplified by sham growling
Feverish chase taken for fun and survival
Terrestrial roaming shunt intruders

All work done, day is done, well done.

Two cats, once more drenched with sleep
Light abandoned
Hidden bed awaits.
Artist’s soliloquy to its simplicity, to their mystery.

“The young man who rode “Barroom Bandit” is a patient of my husband, Loren, who saw him on a regular basis as he was quite addicted to the adrenaline rush those kids get from riding bulls.  While he was mending from the last broken bone, this cowboy kindly lent me his rigging which I used for this piece of sculpture.”

“A Slight gold reflection lingers, scraping the last of the day’s long shadow.  A piercing whistle is returned from across the canyon, a rattling of sabers.  Guttural sounds of raging passion and eyes red with territorial mania express the need to dominate and procreate.  Bluff is called.  One not yet strong enough will soon be sulking in the safety of a stand of crowded pines where he’ll blow and plot revenge for another day.”

There brushed with yellow and red, a reflection lingers,
smoothing the scant shadows of the day.
A piercing whistle is returned from across the canyon,
ranking dominance coveted.
The reactive thrashing of an evergreen,
incites immature courage.

Deep cavernous rumbling, accented by high-pitched bugles,
perforates the air.
A young challenger succinct in his determination,
driven by the right to the ascendancy of power, strides forth.
Sabers clash, big based horns declare
the doctrine of strength.

Nearby, clusters of dense aspens,
covering for one not yet strong enough.
Sulking, blowing in the safety of the stand of trees,
plots this youngster, revenge for another day.
All aggression is consequential, bluff is called,
the seasons pass, an interlude, a day will come.

“While exploring the Lake McKay area during a trip to the Northwest Territories, I happened upon what, from a distance, looked like an old oak tree growing out of the tundra.  On closer inspection, this illusion revealed itself to be a group of caribou presenting such a strong composition that I was compelled to sculpt it…nature’s unfailing inspiration.”

 

 

Castlerock Canyon

CastlerockCanyonWebEdition 35                        19″H X 13″W X 9″D                        $3,500

Collision, chiseled upthrusting
Jagged spires ground by ice.
The tailings washed clean
A time after water talked.

Light is new deep gold
Reflections still low.
Light is high, white and hot.
Shadows thin, pressed against the shapes.
Light heavy, light falling
Profusion of darks
Push away the day.

Music of the canyon cools
Gathering force strikes, sharpens.
And, at the end of its breath
Recedes, a caress.
Come now, the mountain cardinal strolling
Through eroding pews.
Last light touching
Vestment hats of horns.

Awards:

  • Desert Caballeros Western Museum, Wickenburg, Arizona, Best of Show for Extraordinary Artistic Achievement in any Media for grouping including “A Colt Named Sonny, 1920”, “Bluff Called” and “Through the Pass”

“A number of years ago, I bought a colt named “Sonny” off the track.  He was talented, athletic and I felt he would make an excellent jumper.  Unfortunately, he had no redeemable social graces and was smart enough to be dangerous.  As I developed this piece of sculpture from the 1920’s, there emerged Sonny, cold-eyed and forever the nonconformist.”

“Having raised an orphan cougar has left me with many impressions of this wondrous athlete.  Cats are superbly built for a life of hunting, requiring speed, power and agility.  They may have an excess of dignity and arrogance but the gracefulness they lend to even the most simple gestures has kept me in awe of this splendid animal.”
