Lifesize Bald Eagle 2014 "Vigilance"

In designing and creating this powerhouse sculpture I pulled out all the stops. I was inspired to do this carving as sort of a tribute to my great friend Bill Ballard who had lost his fight with cancer in early 2014. The last time we were together, standing on his dock on the shore of southern Georgian Bay in Ontario, Canada, a big shadow swept across the platform at our feet. As we looked up, a mighty Bald Eagle soared past on powerful wings drifting on a course toward Beckwith Island.

My friend fought a brave, vigilant fight against a sinister foe and eventually lost... Every day is a gift!
