While browsing for images to share with you, fellow artists, I realized I did accomplish a few projects during the pandemic. A few indicate I’ve been discovering some of the joys of working with my little welder.
Lotus More than four years in the making (Yup, it sure took me a while to wrap my mind around going large scale 3-D).
Each petal being a handleless spade shovel originating from all around the counties. My thanks to every kind philanthropist who contributed a shovel, etc. 🙂
At last my lotus is finished. Now hanging on the back wall of our workshop, to my dismay it looks tiny! Talk about squishing a longing for achieving architectural artwork.
However, there is nothing like challenge to push me further out of my comfort zone so another old project that would not stop nudging the back of my mind came forward with a vengeance. If it works out, and with André’s contribution, you should see this lotus when driving by our place on the 4th of Kenyon by end of fall.
Fern Commissioned by one of the kindest and tallest men I know for the birthday of a petite lady I adore.
One of the joyful work projects that gave me wings. I allowed myself the right to rub brainwaves with Dr. Seuss and loved it. Naive and candid, free of my usual need to copycat nature to a T.
Heart Last fall, we decided to take a breather from the outdoor maintenance our property needs and, instead, to play a bit. Removing one vine we planted 9 years ago at the base of our chimney, we attempted large scale again. Unlike the lotus, this heart doesn’t hide its identity from the road.
