A piece of railroad track and three fine new hammers promise new styles of work to be coming soon. Smithing is a direction I have wanted to explore and with the help and nudging of Santa and his elves it will actually happen. Stay tuned as progress unfolds.
Hello friends and collectors……..
The Patron corporation (yes—the Tequila folks) is producing a national holiday art project that will benefit one non-profit art organization in each of four major U.S. cities; Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco. I had the honor of being selected by Patron as one of seven artists from each organization to create artwork in a downtown storefront, in view of public passersby. Creation of the artwork was filmed, with time-lapse videos available on YouTube. Artworks made in the temporary storefront studios are being auctioned by Patron on E-bay with all proceeds (plus an additional donation from Patron) going to the non-profit art organizations.
Sale of my artwork through the Patron auction will benefit the Artists Guild of San Francisco of which I have been a member for over 15 years. The Guild has been key in my success as a professional artist; I would very much appreciate you supporting this excellent organization by bidding on the wall sculpture shown above (steel, about 26 inches tall).
Please check out the auction site at: www.eliminateregifting.com
Due to unfortunate difficulties, video of me creating the artwork is not available, but many other interesting videos of artists working on this project are available at: Patron Project 2011
Thanks for your time, attention and support.
Happy New Year!
