Covid 19 - Reminders of natural life

Image
Here is a piece that seems suited to our Covid 19 crisis:  A work stuck in a storm - with branches being thrown around - but standing strong, bowing to the wind. This piece had an accident - a fall and a broken rock - then it has been re-born on a granite foundation.  The first version had a dark shade of green.  The color didn't come out very well, but a little touch has brought out a new piece!

News from a client and correcting a mistake

Image
I recently received the following e-mail:   " I just noticed our forest on your site...we live in South Carolina in a very humid climate.  Dan and I are so pleased to be able to enjoy the forest in our home.  Our grandchildren like to touch and when hurricanes come the branches show the strength of the wind.  This past Christmas season the shepherds, sheep and angels were all gathered around the forest.  We wish you great success with your art ." This piece is called ForĂȘt Humide (Humid Forest - in English) This piece was purchased from the Historic Gardens of Annapolis Royal (in Nova Scotia) http://www.historicgardens.com/   In an earlier post, I said the owners were from North Carolina - I'm correcting the record.  They are actually in South Carolina.  (I'm sorry for the mistake on my part) I'm glad to see a dream of mine being acted out in another part of North America.  T ouch the A rt as you E xperience it! Thanks for the news! Sinc

The newest member of our tree family: Heritage Alive

Hi everyone, let me introduce you to Heritage Alive.  I've been working on this piece for a very long time.  I have a number of "making of" photos that go with it.  It portrays an ancient heritage that is still thriving in the branches that remain.  This piece reminds me of a new baby - with lots of pictures: bath, messy first solid food, trouble being caused... I am asking 749$ for this work.
