These two concrete fountains are finally finished! One is totally new and one is a new version of my last one with a few new concrete art pieces added. I had two customers stop by just as I had finished setting these up yesterday. These two fountains and one other one were bubbling as they were walking to my front door. They immediately stopped and remarked that if they had a break that this sound would be the perfect medicine. Yes, the movement and sound of water is just perfect and so relaxing. And if your day his hectic or if you feel overwhelmed, this water feature is exactly what you need to come home to.
I'll be delivering these to Wealthy at Charles in Grand Rapids this morning. Stop by their store if you are interested in purchasing one of these. If you are interested in ordering a custom fountain just for you 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.
