After I mentioned that I couldn’t do another installation at the “Spiral” site until I cleaned up the poor cutting job done by who ever removed it a couple of local supporters of my work took it upon themselves to go down there and do it for me.  I am now energized to get it…

This is a recent installation in a fairly obscure location that gets less than an hour of sunlight a day at the moment.  It also has an elevated placement so it will really have to be “discovered”.  I find something positive associated with the open hand and it’s “high five” status.  I included the five…

Because of the location of this piece, on Hwy 203, with traffic speeds up to 60 mph I needed to make it simple and easy to “read” at speed.  The location is very visible but only form one direction. Although, the logging trucks didn’t  dump their load on me…the thought had crossed my mind.  I…

While I was installing the Forest piece my studio landlord and her grand daughter happened to notice me and stopped by to see what I was doing.  They often see me working at the studio but are never quite sure what I am doing out there…Abby, did make a comment that was very poetic and…
