It's Been a While

Updated: Nov 10, 2018


28 November 2012 Distractions. Between an emergency appendectomy; a hurricane; five days working in North Carolina for the election; an early snow storm; and then jury duty, it's been difficult to get back to working on Foundlings...


Often I find myself working on several Foundlings at once. Suddenly a piece of wood, an object, or a broken part comes into my field of view. Almost without thinking I combine it with another piece. Then another. Some of these pieces may be hanging around the shop for months. All of a sudden, a composition emerges. I still need to figure out how this will be put together and it needs to be stained. I let the composition sink in. I have no name for this piece nor am I convinced that this piece will even see the light of day but here it is. The process starts anew.
