I finished this study in July and it now joins the sculpture garden. There are quite a few elements here and again, passersby are welcome to move things around or add to the green study. Unfortunately the photo doesn’t give you much access to the “behind bars” limes and other green things, but you get
Alison suggested I pass on my friend’s letter which will be published in his local paper. He loves to write, and I think he made a very good point. When I was a child and my parents discovered that I had broken the rules, my mother would call for me. I knew I had done

Drafting another sculpture as part of my study of the color brown. This one is called Where are you going? and the colonization of Mars seems fitting as far as current ventures to escape reality.
Here is a snapshot of a current work in progress that is part of my study of the color brown. This sculpture is installed beneath a hibiscus tree highly trafficked by hummingbirds in my backyard. I am working on additional sculptures that will be secured to the table as I continue.
