Bronze sculpture of Boy golfing
Challenge, perseverance, dedication: three words that describe the mindset necessary to excel in golf. The same attributes are needed to master life. This young fellow is taking his natural talent and hours of practice in anticipation of that perfect golf shot – “Pin High” – tap in for birdie. In life, as well as golf, there are unseen obstacles and challenges that can be overcome as we strive for excellence.
My neighbor Jeff Pickering was a very helpful and accommodating model and fun to work with. It’s always a nice kudos when a model ends up thinking the piece turned out nice enough to acquire one as Jeff did. Capturing not only the gesture but the personality, likeness and ‘gestalt’ is the challenge when using live models. It’s really fun to pull it off!
