    great capture, sculpture in stone, is sooo much work, i,ve done clay,but never had the courage for stone,as a kid i knew as a friend, walker hancock, who introduced me to art,walker, was one of our great sculptors and one of the kindest man i have ever know, who was successful,yet still humble,

  • Thank you, madvlad, for this and the splendid plethora of other comments on my work. Oh do have the courage to tackle stone, go at it. Pick something less formidable, even soapstone, it’s an exquisite experience and you shouldn’t deprive yourself of it. You’re lucky to have known Walker Hancock, and how fortunate he was with commissions of such good size and then well placed. I’m glad to know the more personal aspects of him live up to the monuments.
