Alive!   Eva Stanley's works are alive.  That is the most descriptive word I can attach to hers pieces.  Many years ago I bought her Box Turtle and every time I look at it it still surprises me as to how alive it looks.  As I pick it up and feel the weight of the bronze, and look closely at what is clearly a metal patina, I know logically it is a sculpture, but when I put it down I feel it will just slowly walk away on its own.  The Gila Monster which Ms Stanley displayed at last year's Sculpture in the Park show in Loveland produced that same feeling.  I -- and numerous other admirers -- just stared at the Gila Monster waiting for it to move.

I first met Eva at the Loveland “Sculpture in the Park” show.  I am an avid birder and had been looking for some bird sculptures to display in my home.  She had several bird pieces on display at her booth as well as other animals.  I really became attached to a sculpture of a Baltimore Oriole she had on display and purchased it.  Since then I have commissioned her to do two more pieces for me.  I have never found her less than professional in our contractual dealings. She shows me the work in progress, and keeps me posted on her thoughts and feelings on the piece.  It makes me feel like I am part of the process.  I've had the privilege of watching her take measurements of museum specimens and was struck by the amount of respect and reverence she shows to her subjects.  She obviously loves what she does, and the animals she reproduces in bronze.   To me personally, to have some of these birds displayed in three-dimension in my home is the next best thing to actually being out in nature with them.  It brings a sense of peace to a sometimes chaotic world.  As so many people have said, "art is food for the soul."  We may exist without art in our lives, but would we want to?

Our group contracted with Eva Stanley and Sharon Fullingim to design a sculpture which would greet visitors coming to the Goose Pond Fish and Wildlife Area in SW Indiana.    Their design, featuring bronze Sandhill Cranes upon a sculptured limestone base, was selected unanimously from among the designs submitted to our Board of Directors. The finished work beautifully captured the essence of our wetland’s signature bird species – the Sandhill Crane.   Eva and Sharon’s work was done on time, on budget, and with wonderful esthetic intent. We have no hesitation in recommending the work of these exceptional artists.

I love Eva’s box turtle, “On My Way.”  It reminds me of a box turtle that came up from the woods on the west side of our house, walked across through the front yard and then went back to the woods on the east side of our house each summer for several years in a row.  I miss it now that it takes another path.  Eva’s attention to detail is unsurpassed; one could not ask for more accurate sculpture than Eva’s. Enjoy!
