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 🙂

It seems to be the right time to start playing with light in my sculptures.
Here is the first piece I made with light in mind. As I am finding out it is great to illuminate it from above or below, but not from behind it as I originally had thought. The light source will be seen and distract from the form.
This piece is made to hang on the wall and I loved playing with 2 mirror images as I have done hundreds of times with the symmetric shapes of earrings.
