This is the eighth piece in my “They Remain” series honoring the Granite Mountain Hotshots. To see where the series started go to this url.
Last week was the third anniversary of the Yarnell Hill Fire where 19 of the 20 Prescott Hotshots lost their lives. With eight pieces finished—three in various stages of finishing—then nine left after those—I am looking forward to finding a place to show the work. Once the sculptures are available and sold I will be donating half of what I make to Eric Marsh Foundation for Wildland Firefighters.
A few months ago the sole survivor—Brendan McDonough wrote a book –“My Lost Brothers“. This is his story about what happened that day and is a compelling read. It’s available on Amazon if you click the link on the title just above it will take you to more information on the book.
So stay tuned for more artwork from “They Remain”.
