One generation works hard for the benefit of the next. This sculpture is appropriate for banks, mentoring programs, as well as forestry and horticulture.

This larger than life sculpture was commissioned to stand at the entrance of a hardwood tree plantation in Hawaii. As I conceptualized this piece, I chose to build upon the idea that the work of one generation will benefit the following generation.
The proud and tired father and his son have planted a tree that will perhaps give to several generations to come. There is a small bronze tree which they have just planted and the father is proudly looking at it. The son is looking to the father.
It is always a joy for a sculptor when their original concept becomes one that has far reaching application. "Planting for the Future" could be symbolic of building a town, building a financial asset building a life of a child or even just planting a tree for the next generations. It would be appropriate for the forestry industry.
