In the marble sculpture of “Grateful”, I have taken the basic pose used in the preparatory drawing, keeping the reach of the woman’s fingers, stretch of her neck, and the tight set of her mouth and eyes that express the tension and drama of her battle. While she is feeling great sorrow at her loss, I call these works Grateful, not ‘sorrow’ because that is the positive side of her feelings she must use and rely upon to move forward and continue her battle.
