Someone asked where my work might be found in public collections:
I always look at a finished piece and ask myself, “If I were to do this piece again, what would I do differently?”
When I finished Bad Hare Day (see the earlier post) I thought that I wish I had made the fox more obviously being chased by the rabbits. He could have just been a little farther back on the ellipse. I wishes that I had had the fox turning backwards and aware of the animals after him.
So, the next year we made the piece over again using different woods (curly maple and cherry) and having chickens more clearly chasing the fox.
“Who’s Chicken, Now?” was acquired by the Mint Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina.
