Nervous Forest #2



My most recent charcoal drawing... "Nervous Forest #2."  It is 24 x 36" and conceptually along the lines as the first "Nervous Forest" (see next post.)  The idea was to connect natural forms in a way that a person could sympathize with.  The trees' taproots become neurons all connecting to one another in a great collective entity.  Can they think? Can they feel? Would a forest have a reason to be nervous?  My original ideas for this work were motivated by those questions.

I put it in a frame for temporary protection, but it really does deserve a bigger, better frame.  If someone is interested in purchasing this art, I will sell it with this frame, but I hope re-framing it will also be considered.

Gotta Start Somewhere!

It's a bone chilling winter day, and even tho I have lots to do, I want to get this blog going somehow.  I have belabored over what to post first for a few weeks now, so I've decided just to post some photo's of some of the art I've made in recent years.  This seems like a good enough ice breaker!  Please feel free to comment, or ask questions, and thanks for looking!

This was my first completed, artwork using cast glass and bronze... yes, it's a penis cannon.  I can't take credit for the book though, just thought is was a clever base.
