This is not a photograph of Paris

My friend Roberta gave me this image to contemplate. The fashion of the two women looks to be 1920 ? I can feel the wind and the warmth of the sun and the smell too. Were going to Paris in September . Every molicule has been influenced since this picture was taken. This is not a photograph of Paris. Photography realy is a unique joke on time and space . I can't hold my breath as well as a photograph can.

Quartz Server is in the garden

After a long winter waiting for dry sunny weather to complete Quartz Server it's now complete.
I find serving is such an under appreciated act of faith. I wanted to reinforce the serve -serve-serve with the three trays. most of the quartz lays in the steel mesh trays but some are mounted in tiny pedestals to enhance the liveliness of what is being served. I hope you see the server ,if its you or another in a new way. I don't think I'm through with serving up the server at this time! Bon appetit!

This is about sculpture and I havn't shown sculpture too much .
The sumi drawing at the right is the begining of a sculpture and some progression will follow. The three trays will eventually be serving small quartz confection.
The farthist image is the sculpture and Iv'e called it Quartz Server. It is not finished. The quartz at the right on the table will go on the trays and the grey metal will be painted. Warm dry weather is all I need. It will be shown outdoors in the silver garden which I'll show you when the weather improves. It is great to have a speciall place where all the silver ones go.

last fall Rita saw this in our dining room window. I took this picture as we looked on. Just a reflection at the end of the day but what an end of day! We thought about the energy out and in the house . It captured our times. Burnnnnn Ahnn!
