There is something about round things that I just love. This is especially good! I love the round paired with the rectangle print. How many more of those round hoop thingys do you have left? And what were they used for before you made them beautiful?

Karen said...

ok. so I didnt read the description first....lol. drainage pipe. Well, now it is beautiful.

those rings are from barrels that people use in their gardens. and as you read, the photo is a drainage pipe...the hooks are from an old dairy dump. and i, the stupidest person in the world for reasons i dont even want to go into right now.

I am loving this - really visually beautiful!

I know the general advice is to look for galleries close to home, but I feel so much of your work might work in galleries out west. Have you checked into any?

Great piece!

thanks kim..you know, san (a life with a view) has her own gallery in santa fe and i dont get the feeling from her that my work 'goes' in that area.
oddly, the people who have bought my work such as this are 'intellectual professionals' from new york, CT, and canada. go figure!

Stunning. I love how all the components of this piece have been put together.

I just love how you see the potential beauty in the most under-appreciated discarded things. In your hands they transcend.

thanks you guys. angela, i'm especially happy about this because those hook were found and dug out of the earth from a ravine at an old dairy farm dumping ground. who knew such treasures would be found and brought back to life!

I love your work! I think I came to you via Seth Apter (but don't quote me on that!!) a little while ago and bookmarked it to come back and look at in more depth then promptly forgot, doh! This piece strikes such a chord with me, fab work.
