Bronze Alive
Your Love Story
 
Bronze Alive
 
For some 40-odd years, I've been creating realistic and dynamic sculptures of numerous animal species, including man. I work the initial model (or maquette) in oil-based clay, then have it cast in bronze, doing most of the refinishing and reworking myself at home or in the foundry.
 
My trusty Subaru is invaluable for hauling sculptures, pedestals and all my ancillary equipment to shows. It's wonderful off road and in fields, where many equestrian events are held.

Road Trip Survival Tips
 
Planning to drive to a holiday get-together this year? Whether you're heading to grandma's house or a favorite vacation spot to celebrate holidays with family or friends, AAA® offers these simple tips to help you arrive safely and without incident.
 
 • Ensure your vehicle is properly maintained. If maintenance is not up to date, have your car and tires inspected before you take a long drive. Find a Subaru retailer.
 • Map your route in advance and be prepared for busy roads during the most popular times of the year. If possible, consider leaving earlier or later to avoid heavy traffic.
 • Keep anything of value in the trunk or covered storage area.
 • If you're traveling with children, remind them not to talk to strangers. Go with them on bathroom breaks and give them whistles to be used only if the family gets separated.
 • Have roadside assistance contact information on hand, in case an incident occurs on the road.
 • In case of an emergency, keep a cell phone and charger with you at all times. AAA and many other companies offer smartphone applications that enable motorists to request help without making a phone call.
 
With a little prep, you can leave the road-trip stress at home and enjoy your holiday with family and friends.
