Wild Caught Salmon
There is a current picture of the full-size eagle that I am working on. This sculpture is 5ft. wide and is quite heavy. It is made from 20 oz. copper sheet with stainless steel frame inside the body and wings. This has been considerably more work than I originally thought because the amount of copper sheet multiplies as the size increases.
As I look at this picture, I find plenty of humor. Here is a "headless" artist that created a "headless" sculpture. There's hope that soon the eagle will have a head, but not so much hope for the artist.
Who says that art isn't fun.
Close-Up of Eagle's Catch
Introducing Izzy, our Black Laborador dog. It's hard to get an outdoor picture without her in the picture and this is no exception. She alway is so interested on what I am doing. On the right is the eagle's feet. I especially like how the tail of the salmon is slumped over the mount.
More information as this sculpture is completed. I have the wooden platform glued-up and ready to be cut into a 24" round base. I have big hopes for this one.
