I've Been Kissed
2006
30" x 24" x 24"
Bronze w/Patina

This started as an enlargement of one of my chess pieces - “The Bishop”. As a 30” sculpture it took on a different personality and reminded me of other people who behave like toads. After considering this one's character, I rejected my first title (“My Ex Husband”) and settled on “I’ve Been Kissed”. This Toad is very satisfied just as he is. The kisses have only begun a partial transformation of his hands. This title is also a play on the old fable “Kiss me and I will turn into a prince.”
