Rooster Finds A New Home
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.
