Strum Bum Book Signing

Saturday afternoon I am having a book signing at Hastings here in Prescott...for the two swimming books and for Strum Bum.  That'll be fun, but what has been even more fun today is talking to a retired jockey, Danny Marzani, who rode in flat racing and steeplechases.  Best of all he rode in some steeplehases in England with...get this...DICK FRANCIS!  Maybe he will come Saturday and I'll get to meet him.

Carved African Scene Credenza

A few years ago I carved the office furniture for a safari guy.  Wouldn't it be fun to have an office full of horse furniture?  This is his six foot credenza filing cabinet.  His 56" diameter glass topped table with the 19 different animal heads was a fun one to carve, sitting on it to carve, for I couldn't reach everywhere standing up.  Part of the fun of carving is figuring out how in the world to do it!

Clay Saddlebred

Looking at the  photos of current show horses, I can see this clay guy fitting in.

Bronze Bull

I thought I was clicking on my bronze cat, but look what turned up.  He was fun to make, reminding me of the Herefords we used to raise...especially Georgie.  So I should have named this guy Georgie.  Never thought of it.  He makes  a great statement but is even more impressive with my bronze bear as they pose under a glass top as THE BULL AND BEAR COFFEE TABLE.

Remember Lady Cocoton, the fictional friend of 11 year-old student Drew?  Well, here she is in all her ceramic garb...ready to take on the town.

El Uno

This being Kentucky Derby day, El Uno, my bronze sculpture is my contribution to the spirit.  The names of some of the contenders make for interesting reading.  But #10, if names mean anything, should win by a Nose.
