"I remember one of the greatest discoveries of my childhood was planting some marigold seeds, caring for them, and watching the miracle slowly take place right before my eyes. It instilled within me a sense of accomplishment and awe for Mother Nature and the majesty with which she works. This little guy is beginning that journey. Not only do his plants grow, but also his faith and his appreciation for the way things work. This is the boy version of 'Candice'  only I had to include a bug – a katydid. My model, Morgan, was very helpful and excited to pose for this sculpture." Gary Lee Price

"Bugs and Bulbs" is of a young child holding a watering can. The child is dressed in overalls, with a textured surface. A bug, katydid, sits on the child's bare shoulder. The child's hair is styled in a short haircut, and the facial expression is focused and intent. The embellished watering can is tilted, showcasing the act of watering something. The sculpture has a bronze finish, which gives it a warm, reflective quality. The child stands on a roughly textured base, adding to the three-dimensional effect of the statue.
