I was commissioned to create five large sculptures for the new Randall Children's Hospital in Portland, Oregon in winter of 2011-12. Each floor of the building is a different ecoregion of Oregon, so I created two pieces for the Cascade region (bear with lupine and hummingbird and gray wolf with bluebird and trillium,) one for the Willamette Valley (Brush Hare with Western Tanager and Daisies) and two for the coastal region (puffin with sea anenome and Brown Pelican with Silverspot butterfly and violets.)
Here's a slide show that takes you through the process from drawing to sculpture!
Hello Beautiful Person!
If you've been a long time, even if occasional, reader of this blog, you may have noticed that I don't post here as much as I used to. Most of what once landed here has been going to my Facebook page, and I now see this blog as a place to occasionally post on smaller works of note, or a more in-depth focus on installations of other large-scale art projects as they come to life. Fortunately, Facebook now has a handy dandy subscribe feature, so if you're already part of that network and want to join me there, simply login, search for my name, and you can figure out what to do next, I'm sure.
As I mentioned before, I do intend to keep using this 6.5 year old chronicle of my art adventures in the future, so if you want to tune in for my active periods, I suggest you sign up for my email list and then you'll get a better sense of when to catch up over here when I'm actively blogging away.
