Things I Have Seen Lately
Jack and I have taken a couple of day trips lately, just to get out a little and have some fun while the homestead is kinda slow.
These were solid silver, made completely by hand. There were probably 20 animals in the exhibit. The details were exquisite.
We were also scoping out a few new galleries where I might could possibly exhibit my work. It's funny; these days I often find myself inspecting the structure of the building more than the art. Especially if it's old, board-formed concrete like was in this place. No luck here however. They specialize in "outsider" or folk art. Outsider means no university degree, so that leaves me out.
This was an example of folk art that just blew me away. Normally, that genre is not really my thing but this lady had a gift. Outstanding design and composition.
Thought this was kinda neat and it was rather large. I have always been partial to "junk" or found object sculpture. I hope to get back to doing some of my own soon.
