Dear Friends I am so excited to introduce my new body of artistic expression with you. It has been a long time of creative drought for me. Dealing with my Mom’s illness and death left me drained and reevaluating my whole life. This required all of my “creative” energy. But finally after last Thanksgiving the creative juices have been flowing again, leaving me very grateful, excited and curious.
I am exploring the realm of hanging, moving sculpture- the Art Mobile.
Are you ready to get outside and take in beautiful sculptures?
My copper Mobiles will be part of this exhibit: CLARITY 2020
Featuring Stephen Porter with thirty other outstanding artists
Hawk Ridge Farm Pownal, Maine
June 1st– July 19th, 2020
Outdoors and by appointment only
Give June LaCombe a call or email, so she can assure that there are not too many people walking the sculpture trail at the same time and feeding their soul with beautiful art.

In these uncertain and sometimes very depressing times, we all can use something to lift up our spirits and giving lightness to our souls.
This is what the mobiles are doing for me and I am certain it will have a similar effect on you. Waking up to the colorful shapes, suspended in the air, makes me start the day with a big smile on my face. Watching the gentle movement feels so mesmerizing and meditative. It calms the nervous system, quiets the nagging thought patterns and awakens curiosity, appreciation and joy. In other words, it can be the perfect wellness tool for troubled times 🙂

Here is the graphic astrological Ephemeris for this coming year.
To read it, start from the inner circle, that is January 2018 and shows were all the planets are. Below it shows which color I used for each planet. Moving into the next circle shows the changes of the planets and so on until you land in the outer circle for December 2018. As you can see, some planets move hardly at all, some cover a lot of signs. It is also interesting to see how the inner planets Mercury and Venus travel close to the sun. This year I included the Dwarf planet Ceres for the first time, since she is now listed in the ephemeris.
Please ask if you need further explanation on how to read this.
Art Design Consultants (ADC), a Gallery and Art Consulting Firm in Ohio choose my piece “Whispering Wind” for their show Art Comes Alive. It will be fun to expand visibility of my work outside of Maine.
Try out the links and enjoy the first glimpse into my world of sculpture. Bringing beauty into this world is my strongest mission at this point in time! Let me know how you experience the sculptures and what impression you get
Should you come across any links that don’t work, please tell me.
The following show will be a great excuse to take a ride to beautiful Wells. I will be represented with 2 sculptures.

On May 20th you have a chance to visit the beautiful sculpture garden at Hawk Ridge Farm for “Embracing Earth”. A number of my pieces are included in the show. The image below is “Spring Series #1”, a piece that is hammered out of a flat sheet of copper.
I look forward to meeting you at the opening. Or you will enjoy a stroll through the wooded sculpture path at any other time you can make it. More information is below.
Another sculpture show “Power of Place” will open on June 7th in Wells Reserve at Laudholm Wells. I am still working on a piece that will be included in that show. I can’t wait to finish it and have you be able to see and interact with it.
