Sorry it has been so long since I posted! I had this amazing bronze by Dale Wood in the gallery but the base was some what bland, so I decided to incorporate into a piece for a furniture show. To keep the water effect going through the top, I used a grinder to carve in lines resembling water flow. The base constucted of elk antlers to give a Wyoming feel to the piece. The blue color in the fisherman’s shirt really brings out the color variations in the wood. Thanks for checking out my piece!

Beautiful addition to a fantastic bronze. I have a couple of similar bronzes, but I absolutely love this one!

this is a piece that captures my imagination, i love fishing and i love the west, my sister lives in worland, and i myself lived in alaska for a long time, the way you carved the lines on top really do make it look like water in the river…a beautiful piece for sure…

thank you Doug, would love to meet you and see the gallery , not sure if ill get that way, back problems…:(..makes it hard for travel…but if nothing else i do follow your work, i think with the way i design and my flavor for the west and rustic work, living here in alabama is not the best match, but life is what it is…i went to your web site and sure loved all the work there..
