Sculptor Jim Huntington works on one of his massive granite creations in his work area outside his Coupland home on Tuesday, February 5, 2019. An Indiana native, Huntington lived in large metropolitan areas, including New York, Boston and San Francisco before settling in Coupland in 1994. His medium is granite, with a bit of metal thrown in from time to time. At 78, with arthritis beginning to take a toll, he's considering scaling back, but still has about 88,000 pounds of granite to sculpt before that happens. Photo by Andy Sharp.
