Spectacular piece of Art. I love the use and combination of all the various materials. Thank you for sharing…

-- My favorite piece is my last one, my best piece is my next one.

Thanks, I’m glad you like it! I had fun making this, although it was a slow process. The elements come together over a period of several days. I oft times go to bed thinking about where a piece is going, and wake up in the morning with an image of what to do next. I’m in the process of another large piece for my next show here in Ormond Beach, Fl. on May 1 & 2. I’ll post it when done.

mtkate, sorry to take so long to respond…been busy with the last show of the season. This piece won first place again! One of the judges also owns a gallery in the next county, and suggested that I submit it in his upcoming juried abstract sculpture exhibition…which of course I will do!

As promised above, I will also photograph and post my latest piece, which I will also submit to the exhibition. Give me a week.

Thanks for looking and commenting,
Rick
