Playing Hooky


  • “Playing Hooky”
  • Life-sized: 84″ H x 84″ L x 18″ W
  • Limited Edition of 12

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 the piece wanted her husband’s face on the boy. We used 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 piece is designed to sit outdoors near a small pond at the client’s home. Permanent installation has been postponed so that this piece can be included in Anita’s upcoming two artist exhibition during January 2015. “Playing Hooky” won 1 st Place Professional Sculpture and was also “Best of Show” at the 2014 PCAA Annual Open Juried Exhibition.
