The latest sculpture to have sold from the 2012 Loveland Sculpture Invitational was from my athletics series. The sculpture was originally a private commission in 2011 from a woman in northern California who wanted to honor her grandson with a statue of him hitting a homerun. The sculpture is approximately 1/6 scale and is a limited edition of 15. Since selling the piece I had a friend tell me that I should enlarge this to half life or life size. Of course, it is always a mystery to me what pieces to choose to enlarge, but if I go by the feeling I have of the piece I’d like to do it.
