I've done quite a few busts of Buffalo Bill over the years but in this one I tried to be a little more realistic. This one is about 12" tall with the walnut base and should be a winner once painted. There are a few more photos in the Gallery and your comments are always welcome.

When I was honored a few years back to have some of my larger scenes included in the permanent collection of the Woolaroc Museum here in Oklahoma I thought that it was the crowning moment of my carving career. While it certainly is a high mark I feel that this one measures right up there with it. Seeing that little bust of mine in among the other memorabilia of that great star and American makes me feel quite humble and truely honored. What a thrill.
I have posted some other photos of our trip to Winterset, Iowa in the Gallery should you like to see them. As you can see by the photo of Brian Downes, the museum's Director, Judy and our cousin Carl Heinrich, standing in front of the house where Wayne was born, it was a perfect day all round.

This one will be my choice to offer the museum as it's in the caricature genre and therefore more representative of my work. Whichever one they prefer...The Searcher or Rooster, the other is already spoken for and will reside in a collection with a few of his buddies.
There are more photos in the Gallery and I will look forward to and encourage your comments as I really appreciate you views of my work .... both positive and negative.
