Bright Sentinel

A piece of avian paradise, the Scissortail finds its way into the very hearts and minds of its observers. Ever alert, it is intelligent and colorful as a Bright Sentinel.

This sculpture evolved in minutes. I had just begun an association with the Final Touch Gallery in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and was asked if I could devise a composition with this spectacular flycatcher as the subject. I had just seen the first of several on this trip and noted that, like all of the tyrant flycatcher family, it seems to be ever alert, both territorially and in constant forage. It seemed right to elevate the bird, catching the turn of the head as it rests briefly.
