Sculpting for Charity: The Steve Martin Torch

As part of an upcoming charity event, this morning I sculpted the "Wild and Crazy Guy," Steve Martin.  If you pay any attention at all to Bluegrass music, you're probably aware that Steve spends a lot of his time these days playing banjo in a band called The Steep Canyon Rangers.  Just so happens, the Rangers are homies of mine and everybody in our little town has witnessed the recent spectacle  of this band going from a local favorite to that of international celebrity.  Along with Steve, they can regularly be seen on Letterman, Colbert, The Prairie Home Companion, Grand 'Ol Oprey--just to name a few.  Anyway,  in an effort to raise a little money for our local Boys and Girls Club, I've decided to cash in on this notoriety.  I've made a patio torch collection of the whole band, and will soon  offer it up for auction.  Bidding for the series will start in a few weeks and will continue all the way to September when the winner will be announced at The Mountain Song Festival--a premiere bluegrass event hosted by the Steep Canyon Rangers and a benefit for our local Boys and Girls Club.
