Eric Fleming (trail boss Gil Favor on “Rawhide”) sketches in his studio with a female model. On the right are some of his sculptures. Fleming use to spend hours painting and sculpting in his off time.

I was fascinated by the way the plastic surgeon worked. I wanted to mould things, too. So I took to sculpture.” (Thanx to Terry Cutts.)
