Barkley was commissioned for Barkley Fields, Farm Hill Blvd., Woodside, CA, This larger than life bronze mastiff is installed in the Toddler Lot for all the kids (and adults!) to climb on. As I sculpted Barkley, I fell in love with the dog! He became real when I invested that love into the clay forming beneath my fingers.
I photographed the process, so you can see how Barkley was made:
