The Waterhouse Natural Science Prize
As a result of the urging of our son, who lives in South Australia, I entered the "Emerging Artist" division of The Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize, sponsored by the Museum of South Australia in Adelaide, South Australia. For my subject, (suggested by our son-in-law) I entered a sculpture of the "PANGOLIN", an endangered mammal. The Pangolin reminds me of our beloved Texas Armadillo, a favorite subject of mine. They may be distant cousins.
Although I did not win, the sculpture was purchased by a couple from Waxahachie, who later added a billy goat to their collection. I may not create another Pangolin. If you would like one (makes an interesting conversation piece) just let me know and I will crank up the torch.

He was selected and commissioned to create a sculpture for the "Kangaroo Island Sculpture Trail", Kangaroo Island, South Australia. The sculpture is entitled "The Watcher."
