After this weekend's  sculpture show, I saw many artists that have a clear identity. They sculpt certain subjects in a certain style, do them well and stick with that.  Some do pure wildlife art, some do figurative sculpture or children statues.  I don't know what I am yet, and I don't know if this is good or not.  Other artists only had African wildlife, others had various mediums outside of bronze.  I've touched many themes but have mostly kept to wildlife.  However, I don't want to be classified as just a wildlife artist as much as I love it.  I enjoy whimsical, I enjoy sculpting children, figures and western.  I also like a bit more contemporary and not straight up representational art.  So while I have this identity crisis, I'll hopefully continue to create beautiful art that will touch people.
