A project I am most proud of is a full-sized cross I did a long time ago. It was a full size cross with the body of Christ carved into the cross itself. I am posting the beginning, an image of me carving and the finished project.
Here is a newer carving. It is ‘my’ hand, much larger than reality though. It is a symbolic carving and how to put the symbolism into words is not easy. This hand symbolizes my life, my reaching out to new experiences, accepting what life has brought and so much more….
The image below, is from one of the two showings I had of my photography at the Backus Gallery in Fort Pierce, Florida. The bromeliad is like a mini community for insects as it collects the water that they need for survival. It then becomes the feeding ground for those critters that love to dine on insects!
Here is another photo, from my first showing. It was made from multiple images of antique wheels photos that I had taken when visiting my father’s home town of Terra Alta, WV. This town is one that time has forgotten. It has a great history, but its location makes it hard when it comes to our present world. The farmer, also an antique collector, had all his antique farming and harvesting equipment lined up for people to see before an auction was to take place.
