Some one stopped by the other day and spotted my concrete bust in my front yard garden. The bust has been there for a few years watching over everything that has been passing by. I've grown to like her there.
Well, this person immediately found a connection, named her (LuLu) and asked if I would sell her. She had the perfect spot for her at her Pentwater home. How could I say no. Her reaction and the fact she really liked her is exactly one of the most important reasons I create and design. So I sold her and am very happy I did!
So here is my new bust. I missed the other one so much that I had to replace her right away. This one has serious attitude and definitely will fend off anyone if necessary. I'm thinking she has a humorous side as well and most days doesn't take life too serious.
Have a great day...enjoy it, and of course I would sell this one too to a good home! Email me if you would like 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.
