Lewis’ eagle sculpture completed by local artist
Peggy Lewis, the mother of the late Rick Lewis, has announced the completion of the eagle sculpture that he was working on at the time of his death.
Lewis, who was 52 when he died of a heart attack last fall, had owned and operated an art shop specializing in his own creations in Old Colorado City for about three years.
The eagle, which was unfinished in the workshop of Lewis' store when he died, was completed by local artist Mark Patrick.
Copies of the bronze are not available to the general public at this time, Mrs. Lewis said. Just a few were made initially for close family members. “We'll have the mold, so more can be produced,” she added.
For more information, call Mrs. Lewis at 597-8970.
