Business as usual at the harbor, with a twist. Is that an anchor next to the half model of Merlin? Yep. Now I’m represented by the harbor I grew up sailing in. How cool is that? Thank you Harbor staff.
The Anchors I’ve been working on were made while I reread the first book of C.S. Forester’s Hornblower series, Mr. Midshipman Hornblower. They come from personal experience and my interest in maritime history.
I’ve been presenting them to the owners of my favorite restaurants (especially ones within sight of the water) in the hope that they be hung where they are visible to the public. So far, as you can see from previous posts, there is one in Davenport, and one on the wharf in Santa Cruz.
My wife Dori and I are in the process of creating an online shop, which will be up soon. The two Anchors pictured are available for $250 each plus tax. This is my I.P.O. (initial private offering) to friends and visitors to my portfolio.
If you are interested please contact me. Thank you.
These rockfish were a transition. Concrete has been my medium since the 1980’s, however it’s too caustic. The mud fish series allowed me to refine my chops and render forms with often-leftover materials from other work-related projects. They seem clunky to me now, but were a valuable experience.
