Oh my...I could barely breath for a while last night. This room is getting a redo. It used to be my studio and will now become a bedroom. We have our youngest daughter moving back home for a bit following grad school (yay...she'll be graduating!), and thought it would be a great idea to give her a spot a bit more private. Needless to say, I had to do quite a bit of patching and sanding. Wow, what a ton of dust following the sanding. I thought of a great idea to get all that dust out of the room though. I opened the window, powered up the lawn blower and blew all that white dust right out the window! I should of had my husband take a picture of that too. Oh, well it worked and now the clean-up and painting begins.
This morning I'll be putting my concrete parts and pieces together for my two fountains. It's my favorite part of the whole process especially when I can play with water. I'll be posting pictures tomorrow.
Water and fire are two my most favorite things to play with, and you can have both with one of my fountains or my fireballs. Email me for information!
My art often begins with a single photograph, a reflection of my eye—an eye that is deeply attracted to the texture, pattern, and shape found in nature. Whether it is the intricate pattern on the bark of a tree, the gentle curve of a woman’s breast, or the smooth, shiny shapes of pebbles along the shores of Lake Superior, I seek to display the wonder of creation in its purest form.
From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course. From photograph to canvas to sculpture, my hands become dirty, my fingernails caked with the mediums of art, and my heart becomes filled with joy as each piece blossoms, quite organically, into what it was meant to be.
I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it is not always obvious. But, quite possibly, the viewer will see in a new way and will feel a new appreciation for the organic elements around us.
