“Of Proper Wit & Adventurous Spirit”

About six or seven years ago, a fellow artist gave me a photograph of two women. They thought I could possibly use it as inspiration for a sculpture. About a week and a half ago, I ran across the photo again, it struck my heart to see if I could pull off the idea in clay.  
For artistic compositional sake…. I made the woman on the left taller and facing forward (to be the focal point). I arranged the wrinkles in their clothing to lead the viewers eye around the piece. Notice the subtle 5 points of entry, to bring the viewer into the sculpture. 

Don’t you just love that hat! The double rows of cartridges on the gun belt?

      Thank you. It was a fun piece to do. The title I got from the movie, Jeremiah Johnson. Those words were used to describe him in the beginning of the flick. i wrote them down 15 years ago and finally found a piece I could use them with. My best.
