It's been so hot here in Michigan, making it really hard to sculpt concrete. I don't have air conditioning in my little outdoor studio, so I can only get in a mornings worth of conrete work. I do sneak outside for bits of time to find these photos full of colorful beauty that just seem to love this moist amd warm weather.
I was hoping today the humidity levels would be down, but it looks as though that may not happen until later tonight of tomorrow. So, I'll go outside again as long as I can stand it. I'll be finishing up some beautiful concrete bowls I have almost ready as well as another fireball coffee table. (Did you know Wealthy at Charles has one for sale right now?)
I'll be posting my concrete bowls tomorrow so you can see them. I'll be filling them with some very interesting plantings. I have to thank a niece of mine for the idea! I may have to call them the "Andrea" bowls! For any questions, information or if you would like to make a purchase, please email me. Thank you!
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.
