Mom back then…Her High School Graduation Pic
Elvis article from the Sweetwater Reporter
Finally, it looks like it’s going to rain this morning. Rain here in the Las Vegas Valley is a rare occurence – I love it! I’m hittin’ the couch with Kinky’s new book….”What Would Kinky Do? How to Unscrew a Screwed-up World”. And what a fantastic book it is; I’m about half way through it so far. Thanks Kinky, for a great read on a rainy Sunday!
A couple of my previous life-sized people sculptures. 5′ tall Gypsy shown above. Hand sculpted from clay with padded body armature. I had so much fun with Granny Bella below – people on the road sure did a double-take when she on occasion rode in the back of my truck sitting on a low chair facing the cars behind us! She also sat out front and alone at a Texas swap meet with a fishing line attached to her rocking chair. As unsuspecting souls approached, her chair would begin to rock. Bella was a hit at that event and drew a crowd all day long. One person would jump out of their skin when she moved, then they’d bring their spouse, friend or kids by to see their reactions.
Three of my unique “people” were sold to DAF Galleries in Tennessee and another one went to live with a buyer in California a couple of years ago. Due to the large size and composition, they each traveled to their destination by Greyhound Bus…..(but they had to ride below in the cargo section!).
