Premier piece from Tim's One Man Show - Forever Wild for the Legacy Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming.
Nearly fifteen years ago I did a small clay study of this piece. I was excited by the rhythms and action that I could create with a long string of elk, but frankly I was not too sure I was ready to take on all those legs, eyes, noses, and ears! When working with so many animals and trying to create smooth transitions from one animal to another, it is often helpful to think of the flow as if reading music. Again, the real trick is to make something that can seem very complicated feel free and easy.
