If pigs could fly



My wife and I played extras in the movie "Cowgirls and Angels" with James Cromwell one of my wife's favorite actors. So I designed a plaque for him because of the movie "Babe" and for his work with PETA. This took a lot of time and work, if you will notice the gold on the lettering is real gold dust. This was my most difficult carving ever. As you can see my wife got to meet James ( I already met him previously ) . The timing was so close finishing it and finishing the movie the plaque was still slightly tacky.

  • What neat back-story! Were you able to present the plaque to Mr. Cromwell?

    • Yes I did on the last day of filming at the Stillwater Rodeo arena, we were invited to his trailer where I took the photo of him and my wife. She also brought about 10 dvd movies he starred in and he autographed all of them. He said he was going to display it in his trophy case with his movie awards.
