I submitted my donation to the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary "The Last Cowboy - A Feature Film" project documenting the life and work of Dayton Hyde, founder of the Wild Horse Sanctuary in South Dakota.
In exchange for my donation, I am submitting my art work, which I have decided will be a full size sculpture of a Mustang.
Having always been a horse owner and lover of the big beasts - this project is near and dear to my heart, not only to help the cause of protecting the wild horses of North America, but also it gives me an opportunity to immortalize my horse, if you will, who has been part of my life for 27 years now. I am using some of his old shoes in the sculpture and it will be a permanent fixture on our property after it is complete. (Can only submit photos of my work - so will be keeping the sculpture)
Below is a link to the Facebook Album as I will be documenting the construction process as I go and sharing it with anyone who wants to follow along!
This is my first very large scale art piece and I am excited beyond description about doing this!

Being a welder by trade, I am most passionate about welded metal sculpture, creating unique, realistic sculpture pieces using just a welder and grinder. I also work in the technique of repousse and chasing as well as artistic metal enameling. I work in steel, copper, silicon bronze and pewter.
