In late October Dave and I set off in a 22-ft Penske truck for southern California to install our latest two sculptures in two different juried exhibitions. First stop San Diego where we installed our piece Sprouted Bumbershoot in the Urban Trees 7 exhibition.
Come late October when the rains have started here in the Portland area, Dave and I will be catching a little sunshine in Palm Desert, California. That’s where we will be installing our latest large scale metal sculpture Shapely Two. The piece was juried into the 2010-2012 El Paseo Sculpture Invitational along with 17 other [...]
Who’s going to let a little rain stop them? Not the new woman in town in Bremerton, Washington. Dave and I recently delivered our 6-foot sculpture Despite the Rain to Pam Bykonen, Arts Commission clerk for Bremerton and our main contact for the project.

I don’t remember who I overheard referring to our new sculpture as Hot Rod Angel, but I had to chuckle. My original idea to explore bold metallic colors came from watching American Chopper and seeing the painters apply multiple layers of yellow and green to a new motorcycle tank. It was bitchin’, and I couldn’t stop thinking [...]
Rise returned from Masic, our powder-coat supplier, donned in a deep translucent and luscious red. The red together with brushed stainless steel is exquisite and completes my vision for the sculpture. To get some good shots of her we took her to our neighborhood park and waited for those magical moments of evening light. Rise [...]
The Arts Commission of Bremerton, WA recently commissioned us to create a sculpture as part of their city’s downtown revitalization vision. They commissioned seven sculptures, one of which is ours, to be placed along Pacific Avenue, the main walking corridor downtown . We are creating a pedestrian-scale version of our existing sculpture called Despite the Rain. [...]
