TOAD FRog  //   Karmien Bowman

This toad frog is not a particular species, but a combination of two creatures combined from childhood fantasy. It might have come out of a hole and had lots of bumps that melded with the ones that stayed mostly in the water and had strange webby feet and big tight tympanums. Their shiny eyes peered from under Daylilies, or sang a chorus of music at tiny twilight tea parties with lightning bugs, we often enjoyed after coming home from hide and go seek by the creek. We three sisters played leap frog endlessly on summer evenings under great Cottonwood trees with recited rhymes. I would like to share these carefree memories through my sculpture.
