The foundry called and needed instructions for patina on the new bronze eagle sculpture. It was unexpected and made my day. Seeing hard work come full circle and finished is the fulfilling part of the process... well, then of course finding good homes for the work as well. However, it's kinda a "Christmas morning" feeling when the work is in it's final stages. By the end of the week, "Defending Liberty" should be here. It's only my second eagle sculpture I've ever done and I think it will be one I'm proud of. Now we shall see how it's received by the public.
