Stick Men




Emporium, looking down on the coffee drinkers saying: " Hey, we are cool dudes and like hanging around here". I think they like the open mic poetry nights, but they won't admit it.

I really don't have a story about these mixed media sculptures. I was inspired by funerary sticks of africa and it led to this. It seems as I do them they have their own story to tell. I envision them all ( I have three more to do) hanging together in the

I just love your art work...especially your mixed media pieces! You are so very talented, good thing you discovered art. They would indeed be conversation pieces...not to mention that they look like they're confiding in each other.

Cynthia said...

Too funny...we were posting on each other's blogs at the same time! I also wanted to add that you are inspiring me to try some figurative work. That's something I haven't attempted in awhile.

Every time I visit your blog I find inspiration (and feelings of inadequacy!).

I LOVE your Trojan Horse...

I like that your inspired joy but not that it makes you feel inadequate eeeek! I say stop that right now.

Hi cynthia, they do look like they are confiding lol! Thanks for your kind words.

I think I didnt get one of your comments posted to my blog. Not sure why and now I cant find it in my mail. I will let Dr. John know. Not that a couple of JC points is going to make or break your chances.
