Sharon's Best in Show sculpture of an elk.

We are not sure who (what species) 
we will be using as a model, 
but we will post it here once it is decided.


About Sharon:
About ten years ago Sharon was in a workshop given by the Sculptor, Rich Loffler from Regina. She has since taken several workshops from Rich in Phoenix, AZ and a few from a student of Rich’s in AZ. Sharon has  done some kind of art  all of my life finding drawing to be very relaxing and rewarding. Sculpting is simply drawing but in a three dimensional form. Sculpting an animal from life is how the masters like Rembrandt Bugatti and Antoine-Louise Barye created their masterpieces.
