Animal, Vegetable, Or Mineral: The Art Of Frank Fleming
Sunday, November 26, 2006 12:30PM APT
When Frank Fleming produces one of his animal sculptures, the results
sometimes surprise him. As he works, the piece "takes on its own being,
it seems to have a soul"-- a reminder, he says, of nature's importance
in our lives. As Fleming explains it, his childhood on a small farm in
northwest Alabama sowed the seeds of his artistic success: a fertile
imagination, a deep reverence for nature, and a strong work ethic.
