Progress Report: From our Project Manager
You may see a lot of this guy the next few months. Besides being very good looking he's doing a great job as Project Manager at the building site. Everything is moving along on or ahead of schedule. I'm sure it's because of his direct shouts of "da"!
I'm so excited the schedule is on track. This means my Art Studio will be in working order soon. I hope they don't get upset if I get in there and start working before it's totally completed.
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.
