Isn't just like an artist to design something that BEGS to be climbed, 
and for it to be commissioned by a committee that figures that out after it is installed.

I know, the shoes in the shot are already a gimmick.........

Comedic Re leaf

Ok, sorry to be so macrabe' yesterday. One of the most influential people in my life, an old friend and ex-business partner is dying. Not sick, but dying. He and his wonderful wife were to arrive in a couple of weeks to spend the summer with us, as several times before.
We got news that he is too weak to travel, and that he has a few weeks on the short, the end of the year
on the long side. I know he is in his 80's. I know he has led an incredibly full life. I knew he was in his final chapter. But I did not know how deep he was in my heart. I did not know how much he has influenced my work. I did not realize how much of me is him and me of him.

Meanwhile, here are some old sketches that fall forward the kind of inflatable sculptures I am cultivating, and the king of ornament that the honorable WNF, or Henly Swerthing, would want me to be.

I suppose the upside to having your heart broken 
is that it proves that you still have one, 
and that it still can be broken.

And it will grow back again. 
with this scar, 
another part of your mosaic.
