The Gift
Life-Size Bronze
Edition of 30
"The Gift" was done as commission for a family here in Longmont, CO that had just lost a baby in childbirth.  My nephew Mark Allen Kinkel was born at about the same time with a fatal condition called Potter's Syndrome.  He died after taking just a few breaths.  Creating this sculpture became a very cathartic and therapeutic experience for me.  Since there really aren't many reference resources for a new born I used what I had closest.  My own son was just a few months old so I'd hold him in my hands as the design shows and he became my model.  This life-size bronze continues to be one of my most moving and popular compositions.
