NSA has been tracking his metadata ever since!!!

OK, what you just read is fiction, except for sculpted nose and Castro Halloween costume parts . . . at least I think the rest is fiction. I am getting a lot of phone calls from random numbers and locations. Hmmm . . . . .
Since you are already here, perhaps you’d like to stay and see some of my recent works–both sculptures and paintings. There are 19 new pieces displayed throughout the site. The list below will help you sort through what is new from my existing body of work . . . and you can get a Sneak Peak at a couple of water sculptures/fountains for spring. (To the right are a couple of photos I snapped in the past few weeks.)
This post’s Featured Work is a commission piece called The Penguin (Dec 2013). It is made of forged steel that was then treated in a bronzing process. Click here for the slideshow of how The Penguin came to be.
