Playing Hooky
by Anita Watts


What 8 year old boy has not dreamed of "Playing Hooky"? Does this title refer to skipping school or hooking a fish or both? This life-sized piece was a special challenge, as the client, who commissioned 1/12 of the Limited Edition, wanted her husband's face on the boy. We used several old photos, plus family and friends to get his face just right...and what a wonderful, lively, and expressive face he had to work with! This sculpture is designed to sit outdoors near a small pond, garden fountain, or lake. "Playing Hooky" won 1st Place Professional Sculpture and was also "Best of Show" at the 2008 PCAA Annual Open Juried Exhibition.
