Just an update on my 4 Bee Eaters. Sounds like a Rock-n-Roll group. Been a major painting job. 5 Straight days and still not quite done, maybe tomorrow.
Pleased so far, will let you be the judge. Will post pictures next week.
Mark does an excellent job with his carvings and paintings. Good site to visit.
He also has posted a link to some award winners over there.
Always amazed at what you can stoumble on to from around the globe.
With some help from Jo & Stan we may have located who did the sculptures in Heber Springs. Vic Payne has some very simular to that one along with many more. Our Cabela's in Rogers may have a Vic Payne Sculpture too.
Go to his web site and be astounded to the detail of all the ones he has done.
and the gallery
Looks like the whole family are well known for their sculptures.
Noted western sculptor and artist, Vic Payne has been sculpting for over 30 years. He was born in 1960 to sculptor Ken and Priscilla Payne. Moving to a ranch in New Mexico instilled in Vic the roots of the West and became central in the shaping of this sculptor’s character. His families’ ranching heritage, tales of Billy the Kid, the Lincoln County Wars, pictures of paintings and bronzes by Charlie Russell and Frederic Remington made the “Old West” come alive and inspired Vic to try his own hand at sculpting.
Vic's distinctive style and artistic approach to sculpting along with his attention to detail is widely recognized as being imaginative and innovative, chronicling the life and era of our nation’s history. A sculptor of various sizes, including monumental bronzes, Vic's mission is to lead the viewer through an emotional journey telling a story with his art. Whether he is
creating wildlife, Native American or Western sculpture his passion is to
capture the spirit of the West evoking the pioneering, independent, mystical
spirit of the land and its people. Studying and drawing inspiration from
Master teachers such as Bruno Luccesi, Lincoln Fox, Fritz White and the
impressive artistic works of European Master Michelangelo has had a significant
impact in his work.
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.
