Long day in Pretoria with Frog

Growing up in South Africa, I developed a deep and lasting love of frogs. My most vivid childhood memory is of a long day spent out by a small waterhole on a hot day interacting with frogs. They really and truly were gentle and friendly souls. I even discovered that they enjoy a gentle caress along the spine – I never tried kissing one though, but I suppose I can claim to have experienced some level of intimacy with a frog.
As the years went by and adulthood took over, I somehow buried my frog feelings. It was when I produced the first frog sculpture that I came to understand my feelings. It was the small things – literally down to the extent to which I found I knew frog physiology on an intuitive level.
So it began. Eight years and 20 or so frog sculptures later, I feel like I’m just starting this relationship.
So here I present my latest frog portrait. I’ve called this work “Long day in Pretoria with Frog”.
