I'm also interested in creating a lasting legacy for collectors because bronze will last for thousands of years so I'm not really selling the art to this particular collector but it is being passed on.

China is important to the world in that they are a force and on the move. Exposing them to figurative art opens up a potential for artistic expression far greater than anyone would ever have dreamed possible until today. It is this very spirit of the struggle and determination to triumph that inspires creative expression.

Charity work is very important to me and gives me an opportunity to give back to my community. I've always been a big supporter of many different charities, have donated millions of dollars to them, and it just feels great to do and be able to help others, especially children.

These guys are just flying through the air and I'm capturing them in the split second and putting it into a work of art, via clay to the bronze.

I cannot tell you how many people, powerful people, come to my studio and they are in tears they are so moved by what they see.

I was tired of illustration. You'd work so hard on a commission and it would go in to a magazine, and you'd turn the page and it was gone.

Richard MacDonald
I create for artistic intent only and do everything from life.

At any one time, I'll have 30 to 40 pieces going on in the studio, so this is not economically driven at all.

The greatest success is creating whatever you want without conditions. I don't do commissions unless I really want to, because it's like having a job.
Richard MacDonald

I am only limited by the amount of life I have left to capture the ideas I am already working on. Another problem is that I am not sure if I would rather create or collect art. Collecting art is another passion of mine.

I've had over a dozen models come in and pose fro me live for these new Cirque pieces. Cirque is a world-wide phenomenon and they are just incredible athletes. I've been to all the performances and am really fascinated by all of their productions.
