ON A PERSONAL NOTE:

 

"It has been a fantastic, whirlwind year in the studio.  The two solo exhibitions were a culmination of two years of work, planning, and output.  I am eternally grateful for The Bascom having the faith and vision to help me realize "Beneath the Surface".  In addition to the portrait commissions dedicated this year, one of which is the Nebraska State Capitol-a career highlight for sure, I released ten new edition sculptures.  Odyssey is doing an amazing job keeping me on schedule and on task, and none of the past year's successes could have happened without her organization and determination.  My son is now as tall as me, top of his class, and growing into the man he is to become.  And my daughter had a stellar year of new schools, new friends, and new horses.  Overall, I couldn't be happier with 2014 and 2015 is already incredibly busy with multiple new commissions.  Thanks for listening, and thanks to all of you for your continued support.  Happy New Year!"
