When I sculpt, the reward of visual information gathered through real life observation is priceless. So one rainy summer’s night, subject in mind, I set out. My search led me to the main road where unaware of the dangers, frogs were often found. And sure enough, there he was. Bending down, I quickly explained the perils of this past time before inviting him home. He kindly accepted. I can say with great confidence ‘he’ because unlike females he was an exceptional croaker. He posed for my camera like a true professional, I made my observations and wished him the very best before safely escorting him home……. I’ve even been known to have snails as guests!
