Tree frogs in my back yard?! Some bronze tree frogs on a vine.

I haven't got around to photographing the whole piece from top to bottom in one photo yet, so here's a bunch of close ups of my recently finished 'Tree Frogs on a Vine' bronze sculpture, in an edition limited to 250.

You can't beat shooting bronze in the dying embers of the sun's as it bids goodnight over the horizon.

I imagine I will post the whole piece this weekend, shot more traditionally indoors...

I tried out a couple of different patinas (or to be more precise, Mike Masse did).
He always does a stellar job.
Can't quite make my mind up which one I like best.

I'll probably go with the one that matches the Froggyballs.

Wonderful! Wow, Steve the little frog has beautiful lines and looks amazing.

Beautiful Steve! And you are right the natural light makes them look fantastic. Anyway you can photograph the whole thing that way in a natural environment? It would look super!

Thanks Diane and Deborah.
I took you up on your suggestion Deborah, I'll put some pics up this weekend (and some against a plain bkgd)

I am completely inspired by these little creatures. I don't even LIKE frogs!!! Beautiful, Steve.

P.S. the word verification is "watchout" ... really?

'Don't like frogs'?
How could you not like frogs?
Well I'm glad at least that you like mine!
