Day one! My new art studio and my first batch of concrete!
Finally! It's been 302 days since I've mixed a batch of my concrete. Although my studio is not all finished on the inside and I'm barely unpacked, I was able to move some tools in and get started.
First up on the list is the fireplace! I've built my forms and poured the first one yesterday. This interesting shape will be the hearth. I'll be opening it up tomorrow morning and will let you know (or maybe even show you) what it will look like.
For those of you ready to see my new concrete art for the fall season, I'll be fitting a few of my pieces in during this fireplace construction process. I'll be sure to post them when they are ready!
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.
