I have this in the sculpture forum but thought I would bring it over here for people to see, since I had a few ask for it.

This is my latest completed piece. It is called Double Crossing, it is 15" high in Bronze.

Superb, absolutely superb. I don't know much about this medium, but I am none the less fascinated. I hope to see more soon *hint hint*

Wow! It is so beautiful! The way you did the hoof prints is so neat. Sculpture has always interested me, but I have never really had the time try it myself.
I would love to see more of yours.:wave:

That's brilliant.

Could you explain the title a bit more? :)

Thank you,

PatrickHedges--The moose entering the river perhaps to cross, the tracks on the shore are to show a place where the river had been crossed before, hence double crossing. The tracks are supposed to be deer tracks but I know a lot of people will not know that just by seeing them, and that is understood, that was another thought of mine, that a moose was crossing where deer had crossed, hence double crossing. I was a little worried that the title might be puzzling to people but that name stuck.

Thanks for looking.

Well you may have to explain it ( except to observant hunters) but I think its a great idea, and people love to be let in on "secrets" like this and then explain to to their friends...I've done sculpture, a lot can go wrong between conception and the final work...this is just wonderful , do you cast your own or have a foundry?

Bonehed: I got the title behind the work, and I think it is very clever. Most people do not use titles that require a bit of discovery, had you not shown the photo of the tracks I would not have understood it. I prefer works we need to 'research' with our eyes and thoughts a bit. It makes you take in the piece. I will say that there are pieces (most abstract) that I cannot wrap my head around how the title correlates to the piece...and I am good at putting 2 and 2 together! You have struck this one with a title that to me makes the viewer look and think, but does not totally confuse them. It's a good title to me.

Wow, beautiful! Amazing detail and I love the name. Makes you look twice to figure it out.

love it...love the concept, the aesthetic finishing off or embellishments of the base, and so forth.

Very happy you posted this here, thanks!!! :thumbsup:
