I'm not going to go into or explain my busy hectic and sometimes frustrating month. What I do want to concentrate on is the fact that I can still design great concrete art pieces for you. This planter is finished and ready to be delivered to Wealthy at Charles (not sure when I'll get there though).. These planters are perfect for the fall! What a great entrance piece this would be - just add some fall color.
Sometimes when life is extremely busy and it takes twists and turns you don't really enjoy...at all, remember to stop, take a breath, pray, and only concentrate on what is good. Thankfully I am really blessed with a lot of good stuff that has happened as well.
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.
