Patience

Updated: Nov 7, 2018

27 March 2015 This piece is called Patience after one of the lions in front of the New York Public Library (the other lion is called Fortitude). This is another one of those pieces that seem to blur the line between fine art and illustration. It is line that is not very clear for me. I found this beautiful pewter paperweight at a little outdoor flea market. I wasn't trying to do a "New York" theme nor was I trying to make some sort of library reference and yet, using the drawer pull under the lion, it still looked like an old card catalog drawer. I think part of the appeal of these Foundlings is how much room there is for people to see what they want to see in them.
