Gareth Curtiss- Lt Peter Puget Memorial

Today I met with Gareth Curtiss, the artist who will be doing the Peter Puget Memorial. His studio is near Olympia, Washington. We had a wonderful sharing session about designs, concepts, protocols and prices.
I was moved to wispy eyes when I saw the labor of his love, his attention to detail and the numerous memorials and full scale monuments he has done. The military ones and the Lewis and Clark ones really touch my heart. It will be an exciting time.

After discussions Gareth quickly sits down  at his table and comes up with these preliminary drawings.
