Many Pieces Have Gone to New Homes!


Thirteen pieces sold from the exhibit at J. Langdon. Wow! Thank you, Juliana Jennings and the many people who appreciated the show!

Two of them went to a home where they are mounted on a screened porch, looking out over a hillside.

It Had to Change


This work I've done during the Coronavirus home-stay has really challenged me. All those figures holding disks with animal heads. What was that about? And that dog or some kind of animal? Finally, they all came together as a single piece, marching along together. I have no clue what this is about, but I am glad to put it aside for awhile...

Everything So Far


So the animal wasn't actually finished yet. It needed more definition, and I carved a new left eye for it. Here's where it wound up. All these photos are taken in the room where I have my temporary studio and where I have a couch and a cot for my two grandchildren, who spend every Friday night here now.


There are seven figures in the Catching It series at the moment, and I think that's enough for now. It's time to turn to something new. I have a group of wonderful bird cages given to me by Ruth Hamilton, and I need to figure out what goes in them...

Animal Finished


I played around with the idea of having a variety of other creatures riding on this guy's back, but I think the bird is enough.



Here's one of the creatures (a turtle?) that didn't make it onto the back..


I took these photos this morning out on the front steps, with a sheet as a backdrop. Primitive times.

An Animal


I carved this piece of firewood (somehow it just looked like an animal...) to create a head and body, and then added pieces of wood I've collected while jogging during this time of sequestration. It proves my personal philosophy
There's nothing that can't be improved by the addition of polka dots!
I find this little creature very comforting. It needs a tail, and I think there might be something riding it -- maybe a bird... More later.
