I had an "art day" planned today. We would have been driving out of town right now to our destination. Camera's and snacks in hand we were going to hike some trails, find some hidden beautiful, interesting, artistic spots no one has ever seen. But...after hearing today's forecast of 90 degree heat with high humidity and severe storms we thought we should wait until a better day. This means I'm back mixing concrete today. I will also be building a new form for a concrete fountain that was ordered last week. My three layer concrete fountains have become pretty popular! Did you know there is one at Wealthy at Charles right now. Wait to go there tomorrow though, (they are closed on Mondays).
If you want to special order a fountain or any of my concrete art, please email me for information!
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
