Art Should Be Fun!

I am a sculptor, a founder, a draftsman, a painter, a printmaker, and an inventor. And I was a painting contractor, specializing in painting barns, for more than 50 years. As a result of that, I have hundreds of empty 55-gallon paint barrels that I could not bear to throw away. Since I'm constantly asking myself "What if," one day it dawned on me that I could cut up those barrels and make flowers for the yard. Each one is hand-cut and painted, by me. That makes the process more interesting for me and you! I consider every flower a miniature abstract painting.

Once that part is done I select the components to come up with the finished design. I never know what the results are going to be until the flower is actually assembled. Every flower I make is slightly different than the last ... I couldn't make two flowers alike if I tried. Serendipity!
