Yes, I did close the doors on this art tudio, but before I did that I thought I better leave 2011 with a few holiday art pieces for you. These stars were a big seller last year, so I thought I would sculpt them again. Of course, they are different. I would never make something the same. I'm all about making each piece unique so you can purchase a one of a kind. These sixteen stars will be available for the holiday season at Wealthy at Charles. When there, check out my other conrete pieces. There are lamps, bowls, fountains, large chunky bowls, as well as several of my paintings and photo canvases.
My studio is empty and now the doors are closed. I can't wait to open my new studio doors and fill the room with concrete, rebar, trowels, metal, mixer, pails and tubs, water and color, and new sculpture for 2012!
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.
